How should I prepare?

It is helpful if you have a full bladder when you attend for scan. Your scan may be performed in two ways: by abdominal approach (a full bladder will help with this method) and or vaginal approach.  Both of these methods are comfortable and the sonographer will explain why they have chosen which method is best on the day. The sonographer may ask you when your last period was and we can carry out scans at any time of the cycle, including when you have your period.

Your appointment will take around 10 to 30 minutes.

The sonographer may explain some of the findings during the examination. You will get a more detailed explanation of your results at a separate clinic appointment or by letter from your gynaecology consultant or GP.

The team

Your scan will be performed by a Gynaecology Consultant or Sonographer. On occasions they may ask for a second opinion from a colleague. They will introduce themselves to you on arrival.
