Ultrasounds with on AF

I was going to put TMI on this thread, but I thought what the heck...We talk about everything else that I don't think this would really gross anyone out.


When I made my RE appointment, they mentioned that for my first appointment they will do a ultrasound no matter what cycle day I am on - including when AF is in town.  There is a strong possibility that I will have AF when my appointment finally rolls around, and I was just curious what an internal ultrasound is like while on AF...Do they have it down to a science of how to do it to avoid less mess?  I am a pretty heavy bleeder and I just was curious on how that even works..LOL

the earliest i ever had my internal u/s on AF was Day 3....so i was fairly light by then....no matter what it's a PITA, as you know, to clean up all that gel and whatnot after the u/s.....ugh....my RE in Dallas had a bathroom connected to all the exam rooms...so it was fairly easy to clean up....

It is definately not comfortable but I had to as well. CD 2 I believe which is my heaviest day. I was sitting on a large pad so the bed didn't get messy and they have a condom like thing on the ultrasound camera. It felt disgusting and I felt soo bad for the lady doing it but I am sure they see it all the time.
