Question Does a vaginal ultrasound hurt if you're a virgin?

TMI alert



I've used full sized sex toys before and use tampons. Will it still hurt since I've never actually had sex?

Read this article:

Look at this picture:

Now you'll know what to expect.

Honestly, as no two human beings share the same experience when it comes to perceptions of pain, no two women share the same sensation "down there". What one finds dreadful and incapacitating another will find sort of uncomfortable. IMO the worst part of most pelvic exams in general is the whole fact of having your naked business hanging at the edge of a table, spread out in a brightly lit room followed by the speculum being inserted. And I wouldn't call it pain, I'd say it's uncomfortable. A very, very large amount of the discomfort is purely psychological, especially if you've never had a pelvic before. The more frightened you are, the more tense your muscles will be, that will make everything harder for everyone involved. Try to think happy thoughts and focus on breathing.

Additionally, when it comes to many medical procedures a LOT has to do with how the technician is handling the job. They are only human, remember that. If you let them know upfront you're nervous they will be very patient with you.

The wand used during a vaginal ultrasound is smaller than what I'd consider a "full sized sex toy", so I would think you won't find it uncomfortable or painful. Usually the ultrasound room is darkened and you are totally draped and unlike during a pelvic exam, nobody examines all your junk and there is no speculum. The wand is handed to you up under the covers and you insert the wand yourself, the technician just holds the handle after you've put it in.

I have an ultrasound every 3 months, never had any pain (though of course we are all different and I'm not a virgin).

Sorry for how vulgar my post was lol my oops. But anyway they wouldn't do it until I lose my virginity. They just did the surface one. I tried to explain the sex toy thing...l couldn't get the words out. It's a woman yea but... Idk she's a doctor I don't normally see and it just seemed weird to tell her. The internets one thing. In person is another lol

Everyone is different.

I am definitely not a virgin, but I'll be honest with you, those ultrasounds are really uncomfortable for me. However, I have a tipped uterus and also my hips and lower back are twisting forward, so my body isn't exactly sitting where it should.

I had them as a virgin, after some sexual activity, when pregnant...honestly, they never felt super awesome, but they never really *hurt*.

Your mileage may vary. Your mom can't predict what it'll feel like for you. They're smaller than most sex toys, though.

It is up to you to advocate for your health with PCOS stuff.

Next time if you have trouble with oral communication, you could write it out on a note and pass it over.

Now you know what u/s are like -- so the next time you go in to check for cysts or whatever you don't have that unknown factor stress. Maybe that also helps boost your confidence.

Good for you in taking care of you though! Getting it done even though there was some stress.

I was a virgin when they did mine. I didn't have any pain that I would correlate with virginity (hymen tear sorta pain). For me it was just deeply uncomfortable because they found I had some rather large cysts and the wand was adding some much unwanted pressure in that region. But luckily it was a quick diagnosis.
