Prior to your first doctor consultation we will complete a baseline scan which will measure the health of your pelvic area, including the number of follicles (sacs containing eggs) present ie antral follicle count, endometrial thickness and also checks for irregularities such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts or dilated Fallopian tubes.
Ultrasound scanning provides a picture of the uterus and the ovaries. Serial scans can monitor if the eggs are developing properly and if they are being released from the ovaries. Ultrasound scanning can also check whether uterine abnormalities or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are affecting your ability to get pregnant.
Ultrasound scanning is used through all stages of Ovulation induction, IUI and IVF processes to assess progress and to guide the decision making of our clinical team
