  • Transvaginal ultrasounds are awkward, but not painful. The PAP hurts because they are SCRAPING your cervix. Ouch. A transvaginal ultrasound is just a wand with a condom on it. No scratching. They also don't shove the thing in there very hard or anything. It is awkward having someone moving a wand around in there while your legs are spread wide on the table, but everyone will be looking at the screen. It really doesn't hurt.

  • it is wayyyy better than a pap smear. it's just uncomfortable that some lady is sticking something in there but it is painless really

  • It's definitely not as uncomfortable as the pap smear, but I won't lie it is definitely uncomfortable. Youll be fine.

  • Well mine hurt a ton but that's because some navy dr jerk did it and didn't lube me or anything and literally shoved it up there as fast and hard as he could. But the regular way, no not really. It's more uncomfortable then painful.

  • Neither of mine hurt at all. Just a little pressure if anything. just make sure you use the bathroom first. it can be more uncomfortable if you have a full bladder. Besides you will be so distracted by looking at your lil one for the first time you will barely notice the wand. :)

  • They use this wand with a condom on it with gelly. The only way it will hut is if they push it up against you cervix. I have an internal with all three of my pregnancies and other than feeling really uncomfortable they are really not that big of a deal to do.

    Good luck!!
