As a first-time pregnant woman, I'm feeling anxious about the transvaginal ultrasound procedure. Can you please provide details on how far the ultrasound probe is inserted?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

During a transvaginal ultrasound, a probe is gently inserted into the vagina to capture images of the reproductive organs. The depth of insertion varies depending on factors such as gestational age and individual anatomy. Typically, the probe is inserted 2-3 inches into the vagina. The procedure may cause some discomfort or pressure, but it should not be painful. It's important to communicate any concerns or discomfort with your healthcare provider who can guide you through the process and ensure your comfort. Remember, this procedure is routine and performed by trained professionals to monitor your baby's development and ensure a healthy pregnancy.

I'm not sure exactly how far it goes in but at least in my case it did not hurt at all. It's nothing to worry about. In my case I was 8 weeks 3 days and was miscarrying. The the ultrasound was least of my worries no pain. You'll be fine. Good luck.
