Early Pregnancy Scans are normally performed trans-abdominally (through your tummy) however an internal (vaginal) scan may be required at earlier gestations ie 6-7 weeks to see all the necessary detail, or if your womb tilts backwards (retroverted).
Ultrasound scans are painless but the gel used within the examination can feel a little cold and you may feel a little discomfort when the ultrasound probe presses on your tummy if you have a very full bladder.
An ultrasound scan typcally takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and the images seen will determine whether a Trans-Vaginal ultrasound scan (internal) is needed.
