What Are Follicle Tracking Ultrasound Scans?

If you have been seeing a fertility specialist, you might have heard the term follicle already; it is regularly discussed in pregnancy scans when trying to get pregnant. A follicle is a fluid-filled sac that contains the egg; we can perform a follicle tracking scan between the sixth and ninth day of your menstrual cycle. We can see if your body is ready for IVF treatment; it is a sign that you can stimulate ovulation if we see what we are looking for.

The ultrasound probe used is perfect for a transvaginal scan, and once the scans are performed, we can tell if you have any active follicles, the critical message you need to pass back to your fertility specialist.

Here at Ultrasound Plus, we recommend having three follicle tracking scans carried out using an ultrasound scan machine; this is ideal for all areas of fertility treatment; this needs to be done during one menstrual cycle.

When we carry out the ultrasound scan, we will make sure you are given a full ultrasound report with our findings, believe it or not, but an ultrasound scan is much more accurate than blood tests and other tests on the market today.

What is the purpose of a follicle tracking scan?

The purpose of a follicle tracking scan is to accurately predict when you may expect ovulation which will help increase the chance of the egg becoming fertilised. This form of ultrasound is regularly recommended during a fertility treatment course; the scan is performed by a professional sonographer who can look and determine whether or not you are at the proper follicular growth for your ovaries to be fertilised.

A transvaginal/internal scan may be necessary during this scan to gain a clearer view. If you require a female sonographer or a consultant, please speak to one of our advisors at the time of your booking. We will advise you that three follicle tracking scans will be needed for optimal results, this is subsequent scans over the same cycle; once we see the fluid-filled sacs, we will provide you with a full report to take back to your fertility doctor.
