Brief Answer:
Masses, adhesions or inflammation can be the cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

Pain on pressure during the procedure can be due to several causes as follows:
1. Exerting pressure with the transducer
2. Adhesions in the pelvis causing stretching effect leading to pain
3. Masses in the pelvic cavity like ovarian cysts, tubo-ovarian masses etc.
4. Inflammation

Please discuss further with your consultant. Hope your query has been answered. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help. You can upload the sonogram report for any more information.

regards,
Shanti.V.
