6th week scan - internal or external?

Hi ladies,
I am supposed to have my first pregnancy scan ever on 3rd July! It's a 6th week scan but I won't be able to have it in my fertility clinic as I will be away in Italy. I just called to ask reception if it is an internal or external scan that I need so to be able to tell the doctor (even if I guess they will know what to do...), and they told me external... however I have been browsing a bit around (as usual!) and I have read that most of the times you get an internal scan at week 6 (even later). May I ask you what did you have?
Thank you!!

I had an internal scan at 7 weeks, I'm certainly no expert but I'm led to believe early scans are always internal

Congratulations on your bfp, take care

Thank you Sasha! That makes sense to me too...
I have now found also other threads here confirming it is usually internal at this early stage.
God bless Fertilityzone! :)

Hi, Coquina and congrats on your BFP
I had internal scans at 6, 8 and 11 weeks. My first external was at 16 weeks.
Most clinics will do the early scans internally but it is not impossible for them to do early scans externally and, with a good technician and a full bladder it can be as accurate as an internal...
