    Hi Anne. transvaginal scan nothing to worry about - I've had a couple, you may get a bit of period type cramping that's all. if you can take them ,maybe take some ibuprofen just before you go. it only take about 5-7mins to do. did your test for infection come back with doctors yet? when i've had the scans before i make an ppointment for 2wks later with my doc - they usually have the results by then. please try not to worry, this is all normal procedure with any irreg bleeding (i had irreg bleeding for 2yrs until i started hrt hence the scans i had). As Alison said before, the irreg bleeding is quite likely related to your coil, but doc is right to go through normal procedures of checking things. xxx

    Hi, Anne,

    Looloo is correct.  The scan may be awkward, but the procedure should be painless and fast.  You have a good doctor who is being careful.

    Best of luck to you, and let us know how you do!
