^^^ CHORIONIC VILLUS SAMPLING. NOT "virus".   It is an invasive procedure in which a needle is directed into the placenta with ultrasound guidance to remove some placental tissue. Typically, performed to evaluate fetal chromosomes in high risk pregnancies and determine if aneuploidy is present in the fetus. Risks include miscarriage, membrane rupture, infection, and even puncturing the fetus!  Performed in the 1st trimester. Indications include age >35 or fetal abnormality seen by ultrasound.

Most tolerate it well. Pain is subjective. You will do fine. You will probably be instructed to "take it easy" for at least 24 hrs after.
