You will be asked to empty the bladder, remove all clothing from the waist down, and be given a gown to wear.
The specially designed transducer, is covered with a sterile condom, lubricated with sterile gel and gently introduced into the vagina.
You may experience mild discomfort but this examination is usually very well tolerated.
