In brief: Like a pap smear
First a speculum is placed just like for a pap smear.
Then the cervix is cleansed with betadine. Next an instrument is placed on the cervix that may cause a menstrual like cramp. Then you may feel some tugging on the cervix while a small catheter is placed inside the cavity of the uterus. This feels like another stronger and sharper menstrual cramp but lasts less than 15 seconds.
