A member asked:

I have pcos. pelvic exams and anything involving vaginal examination are too painful for me. will noninvasive testing, such as mris, ct scans, and abdominal ultrasounds, detect anything? or will i need to be sedated for a transvaginal ultrasound?

There are some disorders that will either not be seen by these non-invasive tests or if something is detected, would need a biopsy via a pelvic examination. You should work with a gynecologist to desensitize you to these exams. You could start by using tampons during your menses as much of the equipment used is not any bigger than a tampon. So, see a gynecologist who can work on this with you.
