  • Its a ultra sound they do inside you. It looks like a big vibrator with an ultra sound tip. Its not painful at all. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes. They measure your tubes, ovaries and look for cysts. If yu have any they document where they are, how many and how big. Then they do an ultra sound on your stomach as well sometimes. Its just awkward at the most.
