High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In medicine, sounds are
instruments for probing and dilating passages within the body, the
best-known examples of which are urethral sounds and uterine
sounds. Some people enjoy using them for urethral play. These
sounds or dilators are intended for probing a woman's uterus
through the cervix, to measure the length and direction of the
cervical canal and uterus, to determine the level of dilation, or
to induce further dilation. Uterine sounding may be performed prior
to embryo transfer to determine the uterine depth and how easily an
embryo transfer catheter can be passed through the cervix. In this
case, it may also be called a trial transfer. It is performed prior
to insertion of an intrauterine device (IUD) in order to measure
the length and direction of the cervical canal and uterus. This
reduces the risk of perforating the uterus with the IUD. This may
occur when the IUD is inserted too deeply or at the wrong angle.
