Before probing the doctor must make a vaginal examination in order to have an idea about the size and shape of the uterus, its position and relations with neighboring organs and pelvic wall.

vagina open mirrors, fix the cervix with forceps and gently pull it to the hole.The mother probe is inserted into the uterine hole very carefully, without using force, and slowly pushing his cervical canal.It should thus ensure that the probe position was one in which its curvature coincides with the curvature of the uterus.Special care is required conducting the probe through the internal cervical os, below which the rear

lip of the cervical canal has a cushion, but directly in front of him - a slight indentation.The probe can very easily get into this groove, and the roll resisting advancing the probe.The operator may mistakenly take this obstacle for resisting the internal os and try to overcome it with the power to push the probe.Further piercing the back wall of the cervical canal probe can be perceived by the operator to overcome the internal cervical os resistance.So sometimes produce uterine perforation.To avoid this complication, it is necessary to probe reaching the internal os and stumbled on the obstacle, turn the end of the probe a little bit in front and enter the uterine cavity carefully.Further, the probe gently to promote uterine fundus, measuring its length, determining at least some of its breadth and nature of the inner surface.After sounding the uterus the patient should rest for at least 2 hours.
