Follicular Tracking

Our ultrasound clinic offers Follicular Tracking to female patients as a simple form of assisted conception. This type of ultrasound scan looks into the size of the follicle and thickness of your endometrium on day 10 to 16 of your cycle. The ultrasound checks for signs of ovulation, which is defined as the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when you are most fertile.

The ultrasound checks for the size of the dominant follicle size for when it reaches 16-18mm, at this point you are at your most fertile.

Why take this type of scan?

This type of scan is for women that wish to check if and when they are ovulating. This then gives them an estimated time frame with which to consummate.

How to prepare for the Follicular Tracking Scan?

You do not need a full bladder for this type of scan, and you can eat normally prior to your appointment.

We use gently warmed Ultrasound Gel to help you relax, and make you feel comfortable during your scan, which should take no longer than 30 minutes.

What can I expect from the Follicular Tracking Scan?

The sonographer will carry out a trans-vaginal scan. Your sonographer will discuss this with you on the day.
