Ultrasounds are painless. They squirt some jelly on your tummy and move a smooth instrument over you. If they are going to do an intra-ultrasound where they use a special wand inside of your female cavity, then there could be some pressure as it moves by your uterus and ovaries. But it doesnt hurt at all. I have had both kinds.

I had this type done couple years ago due to really bad side pain. You have to drink a lot of water little while before you appointment and then pretty much what ShayFL said. It is a little uncomfortable you can always tell the lady that is working with you that you are nervous...goes by really quick though. They take pictures and see if you have cysts or any type of female problems.

GOOD LUCK
