What will happen during an ultrasound?

I am going for an ultrasound tomorrow not because I’m pregnant just to see if my uterus is working well. I’m not pregnant. They told me to drink a lot of water and not pee. My friend had an ultrasound like this once and they said she had to lay down totally naked, and they put a bucket under her to pee in right there since she was naked. She wasn’t pregnant and I’m not either. Does that usually happen? Will they make me go completely naked and pee in a bucket right there?


  1. Uh, No! That is a myth!

    thats weird they told me i couldnt have water cuz that would make the image harder to see, maybe that depends on what area theyre looking at. i didnt go cuz i was pregnant eaither. i really dont think being naked and peeing during an ultrasound is normal =/ if someone asks you to get naked just ask em if its really necessary i guess.

    its real cool tho you can see your body parts in there and its a interesting experience :)

    It was awhile ago, so I’m not sure, but I think I also had an ultrasound to see if my uterus was okay. Here’s what happens: you drink a ton of water before hand, they rub a cold jelly on your stomach, and then run a thing that’s like a very thick pen over your stomach. It’s not painful, just uncomfortable because of how much water you drank. You’re lying on a examining table, not naked with a bucket under you. If something like that happened, I’d be really, really suspicious.

  4. they first do an external ultrasound while your bladder is full then they send you to the restroom to empty your bladder when you come back they do an internal ultrasound. no buckets and you are only nude from the waist down and only during the transvaginal ultrasound
