Re: transvaginal ultrasound & endometrial biopsy

it was just a regular vaginal ultrasound (or pelvic ultrasound), not sure of the proper terminology....because of sporadic bleeding which was caused by uterine fibroids. The water was to see with the bladder full...they did the scan on the outside of the stomach (I'm guessing like they would with a pregnant lady?), then I was allowed to empty my bladder and they did the probe thing inside. It was not painful, not in the least....I would not put this off due to fear.....once you have it done, you'll say.....that was nothing! I worried about that??
See I got the ultrasound because I was terrified of the endometric biopsy.....
you survived that.....the ultrasound will be a piece of cake!
