Re: transvaginal ultrasound & endometrial biopsy

Yikes, I've had many, many t/v ultrasounds, and no one ever threaded anything into my uterus.

I, too, have had midcycle spotting and ovarian cysts, so my doctor does a t/v ultrasound as part of my yearly exam and pap, and it's absolutely nothing. The pap is more uncomfortable than the ultrasound. All he uses is a large tampon-looking thing, inserts it and moves it from side to side to look at my ovaries, egg and stuff. It's always been the easiest part of the appointment. And kind of cool, as I can watch the screen, too, as he explains what everything is.
