Have You ever been examined with full bladder?
I have had the same thing happen to me. I had to go in for a vaginal ultrasound because of a cyst Dr. John said he felt. I have PCOS, so it made sense. Do I think I needed to go and have that test done, no, not really and neither did Doc. But I went and have to have a full bladder. First she did the external ultrasound on my belly, this was very uncomfortable and somewhat painful actually. I was wondering how in the heck I was going to make it through to the internal ultrasound. To my surprise, and a good surprise, the tech made me completely empty my bladder before the internal one. I have never been so thankful to pee in my life, lol.
My wife had to undergo extensive exam by a uro-gynecologist. She had to start the exam with a full bladder in order for them to run certain test. They spent nearly an hour poking and prodding with her in the stirrups. According to her a routine gyn exam is not a big deal but this was a very uncomfortable exam. It was the duration as much as they were doing things both to her bladder and vagina at the same time.
The wife did once during one of her regular exams, I teased her relentlessly about it... OTOH, it would have been a lot funnier if she had an accident on the doc, haha.
My girlfriend when she was younger had several transabdominal ultrasound, every time with full bladder
Yes, my doctor never asks for a urine sample, which means, twice, I happened to be there, in stirrups, with a full or very full bladder.
I won't lie, I found it extremely exciting (and I often masturbate with a full bladder while replaying the exam) but at the same time, it was very hard not to leak.
Yes, once when I was having alot of UTIs and had to go in for a full uro work up. They gave me over a quart of some foul tasting liquid to drink that had dye in it and then went through a series of tests with a full baldder, including an internal vagial and rectal exam. I couldn't hold it forever as the doctor and his tech kept poking and proding me until I finally let lose peeing all over the exam table and floor.
Only had regular gyne visits and always was told to empty my bladder before going into the exam room
As a child I had an experience of UTI thus required an ultrasound. That would probably have been my only experience so far.
I needed an ultrasound and had to have a full bladder, and for whatever reason they had trouble doing it through my abdomen so they had to do it transvaginally. Full bladder and the device inside me was quite uncomfortable...
How humiliation Janice.
Just last week i had two vaginal/recto exams one with a full bladder and one with an empty bladder. Two nurses stood watching whilst he done it. After he had finished pressing and feeling around he said i had fantastic pelvic floor muscles . Maybe because i didn't leak as he pressed but just squirmed.
With any vaginal probe exam requires a full bladder to get meaningful images on the screen.
I fell and broke my pelvic bones like a great pumpkin. Not much was really out of place though, but cracked in several places clear through.They wanted to be sure my bladder and ureters were in place and not torn. They filled my little bladder and stretched it a bit to see if it would leak anywhere. I was in that condition for nearly an hour, just to be sure! I got real desperate. But could do nothing about it.Even after the ex-rays were taken, I had to hold it till they were completely developed.My system had gone into shock and my bowels quit as well. Believe it or not they were only allowed to give me bulking agents till my guts finally poured forth. With a pelvis broken as mine was, I was not allowed to stand for nearly 4 weeks. Oh let me tell you the nursing staff was terrific.

Again a male member posting their story in a gynaecology part of the forum, mods?
Thank you Dr SJ for the heads up. - post removed - and others too.
Maybe some guy's miss the gyaenecolgy bit of this section or don't know what it means, when the is a whole other part of male and female examinations, I have no intrest in men getting examined so don't expect to find it in here
I have had multiple explanations with full bladders.
I had to have my bladder filled via a catheter for an xray.
I have had multiple ultrasounds with a full bladder.
Yes it is horrible
Only when I got a pelvic ultrasound.
Yes. While in the stirrups with an abdominal ultrasound and full exam going on at the same time. Extremely uncomfortable. But I made it.
Heard a story from my partner where she had to wait so long for the doctor to come in that she made the decision to leave the exam room, in just a gown and walk barefoot to use the rest room. Clutching the gown closed in the front through the reception area and past other rooms. Luckily she made it back before doctor arrived but that could have created an interesting situation. So no full bladder exam but the decision made to leave, go, and come back wearing nothing but a gown.
My ex-wife had during her pregnancy an ultrasound. It should be on her abdomen, and with a full bladder. So her uterus was lifted up to see it better. In the car to the hospital she needed to pee but she couldn't. She had to wait long in the waiting room. At the end she may pee and the ultrasound is done vaginal, to her big relief!
In France, for women, it seems that the 'traditional' pelvic ultrasound with full bladder is replaced by the vaginal ultrasound in most of cases.
When I was a child and teenager, I could hear with a lot of interest my mother, aunts and other mom's friends talking about their full bladder ultrasound, all saying that it was an horrible experience, painful, and sometimes some piss on the table... These stories contributed to my medfet.
You are absolutely right, in its beginnings in current practice, ultrasound was only performed with so-called flat barette devices, which only allowed an external approach.
For the examinations at the start of pregnancy, the patient was therefore asked to come with a full bladder and the water contained was perfectly conductive of ultrasound above the uterus. And that in addition was a magnifying glass.
The use of endocavitary probes, including endovaginal ones, only developed in the late 80s and early 90s.
It was indeed a real spectacle to see all these ladies squirming in the waiting room not to pee. (and what to say when the gynecologist had fallen behind in his consultations!!)
On the other hand no, the exams were neither horrible nor painful.
I even remember reluctance during the first endocavitary examinations. When the probe was covered with a kind of lubricated condom, some patients did not imagine that an electrical system was introduced into their vagina.
At my wife's last ultrasound (not pregnancy related) she had the abdominal scan first and was told she may ne need the internal one. However the fist scan was not clear so she was asked to empty her bladder in the toilet next to the exam room. The wall was thin and both the Tec and I could hear everything. She than came back in and was asked to undress from the waste down for the next part. She had hoped not to have the internal scan and was prepared to endure the discomfort of a full bladder to avoid thee more embarrassing internal one.
I had a coworker who was in her late twenties and I was about fifty. She shared that she was going to the clinic for an exam one day. I asked her if she preferred metal or plastic speculums. I guarantee it was the last thing she expected to hear but she liked hearing it. I told her I preferred metal because they seem more clinical.
