Please drink 20 ounces of a non-carbonated, caffeine-free beverage one hour before your appointment time. Do not go to the bathroom! Your bladder should be full when you arrive for your appointment.

If you are having a Transvaginal Ultrasound, you do not need a full bladder. This ultrasound will be done internally/vaginally with a vaginal probe. If you are having a transvaginal ultrasound for an IUD or SIS procedure, you do not need a full bldder. Ifyou are unsure of which appointment type you have, come with a full bladder and, if it is not neeeded, you will be able to empty your bladder beforehand.

If you are less than eight weeks pregnant , you do not need to have to have a full bladder unless you are told otherwise. Your ultrasound will be done internally with a vaginal transducer to image the early pregnancy.

If you are pregnant and between eight and 24 weeks, you do need a full bladder. Please drink 20 ounces of a non-carbonated, caffeine-free beverage (preferably water) one hour before your appointment time. Your bladder should be full when you arrive for your appointment.

If you are pregnant and past 24 weeks, you still need a full bladder, but your bladder does not need to be completely full. (as long as it’s not empty). If you are pregnant and need to leave a urine specimen, this will need to be done after your ultrasound! You will need to know the first day of your lsat cylce when you come in for your ultrasound.
