Q: I am very sore after a vaginal ultrasound yesterday. Is this normal?

Yesterday I was 10w3d and I had a vaginal ultrasound done. She really dug that wand up and back and tilted it pretty far because she wanted an accurate measurement. Well, we got one, but now I am so very sore. It is tender in my uterus when I first stand up and when I sit down, or lie on my sides. Is it normal to be tender afterwards? This hasnt happened to me before. I am not bleeding, thank goodness. If this is normal how long will it last? I am worried sick she caused something to go wrong.

I have had so many thanks to fertility treatments. Sometimes she has to be aggressive to monitor my ovaries and I am sore afterward. Not to worry! When we went in for the heartbeat she dug into my ovaries which were already swollen so I am still recovering.

I was sore after both of my vaginal ultrasounds.. It only lasted a few days.. Its normal to be sore especially if the ultrasound tech moved the probe around alot.. As long as your not bleeding, you should be fine. I even spotted after my first one and was worried she caused me to lose the baby but im 34 weeks pregnant and everything is fine! The baby is well cushioned and protected so it will be fine! If your still sore after a few days or start bleeding or spotting, i would call my dr immediately! Congrats on the baby and I hope it is a great pregnancy!! :)

After transvaginal ultrasounds I have had some soreness - but not like what you describe. She might have bruised you a little internally - I think if it continues tomorrow you should call your doctor.
