During the ultrasound, your provider may apply gel to your skin and move a transducer (a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy) over the area to create images. Gynecologic exams may require the use of a transvaginal transducer to obtain some images.

Afterward, you can resume typical daily activities. Your provider discusses the results with you and lets you know if you need further diagnostic testing, watchful waiting, or medical treatment.
