I had an ultra sound when I was 15. There's 2 ways as far as I'm aware normal ultra sound and an internal ultrasound. Due to my age back then I had a normal ultra sound but I think they prefer to do an internal. Hope that helps a little x

I had it last week. You sit in a chair with your bum over the edge and a blanket over your legs. The scanny person sits to the side of you and inserts the scanner thing into you. It's got lots of lube on and a condom iver it. It's only about an inch or so wide so it doesn't hurt. Then htey press it against either side of your cervix. It's a bit uncomfortable at times but it doesn't hurt. And if you concentrate on the screen, its fascinating! It took my mind completely off it. It turned out my ovaries are textbook PCOS so it was really interesting to see them and exactly what is wrong. FX'd you get the result you want hun. xxx

Hi there my scan was pretty similar to Dragons and I had a great sonographer who told me everything she was doing.

Makes good sense to go armed with questions you can ask her as well otherwise you have to wait ages for results

OMG now im scared. I have my scan this afternoon and i thought it would just be like an ultra sound!

Forgive me for being stupid but i have been told to drink 2 pints of water before i go so i take it that means it wont be internal They wont do both will they.

whats the difference?

They only do an internal if they cant get the results from the external..

They say drink the water because sometimes they can see your insides without doing an internal however i drank loads of water and they couldnt see and had to do an internal..

It really doesnt hurt what so ever, you will be fine dont worry.

I had it done found out i had pcos and then i had to give blood on cd2 to confirm its defo pcos.. Taken blood on this day confirms your levels of hormones so they can see what stage your pcos is..

Not really sure what there do for you having pcos as you have managed to get a BFP before huni so the good thing is you are ovulating and it doesnt seem to be affecting you getting a BFP..

Are you cycles ok?
I have mild pcos no symtons only long cycles I have been ttc now for 16months with only 10 cycles and never once had a BFP I have gone through loads of blood tests, an ultrasound scan, a HSG and only just got clomid to try next cycle.. Some doctors wont give you any treatments they normally refer you to a gyno who will help, however they only refer you if you have been trying over 12 months and with you being pregnant in the past im not sure if your need any assistance you body seems to ovulate otherwise you wouldnt of gotten pregnant.. So the good thing is you wont need any meds, it may just take a little bit of time, but due to you getting there before i am sure babes your get there again with a sticky bean soon..
xxxxx

Thanks i will be sure to drink plenty of water then. I doubt i have pcos as my periods are very regular (every 29 days) and i dont have any of the "classic signs". I suppose you just never know but hoping i get good results.

Is that the only reason they do a scan do they check for anything else?
