What are the indications or reasons for having the Endometrial Lining Scan?

  • If you are ongoing IVF treatment, your fertility treatment centre has recommended an endometrial lining scan to see if you are at the optimum time for IVF embryo transfer or have treatment pending the endometrial thickness scan.
  • If you are trying to get pregnant naturally, a private endometrial thickness ultrasound will show you ready to conceive in the same way blood tests can. This is not always necessary as usually, it is easy enough to work out when you are ovulating.

What Preparation Is Required?

  • Please come with a full bladder first and then the sonographer will ask you to empty your bladder before you come for a transvaginal ultrasound, making it more comfortable for you. 
  • You can still come for an endometrial thickness ultrasound scan when you are on your period; all you need to do is remove your pad/tampon beforehand.
  • You will be requested to remove the bottom half of your clothes so that we can access your vagina for the scan.

Remember, if you are in the middle of fertility treatment; you should always follow your doctor’s recommendations, including taking any medications.

What is a transvaginal ultrasound scan?

There is a range of gynaecological ultrasound services that are routinely performed using a transvaginal probe ultrasound. One of these is our private endometrial thickness ultrasound; we do this by a technique known as ultrasound used to view the pelvic area in the best way; this is because the ultrasound can use high-frequency sound waves to create a perfect image on a computer screen.

There is no clinical risk associated with performing a transvaginal ultrasound scan. Transvaginal ultrasound scans can safely be performed during menstruation and episodes of vaginal bleeding; all we ask is that you come to your appointment with a full bladder then the sonographer will ask you to empty your bladder.

It is essential that you understand the procedure that is associated with this ultrasound scan service;

  • The ultrasound transducer will be covered with a transvaginal probe cover and coated in jelly and placed inside the vagina; please do not worry; this probe is cleaned with a high-grade medical tristel duo disinfectant.
  • We will move the transducer from side to side, up and down as needed to obtain the most images of your endometrial cells.
  • If you feel more comfortable doing so, we can discuss you are inserting the transducer yourself. Otherwise, our sonographer will do it.
  • You can have a chaperone if you require one.
  • You can request for the endometrial thickness scan to stop at any time.
