Follicular Tracking Ultrasound Scan

Detailed Follicular Tracking Scan - £190.00

Follicular Tracking Scan is an assessment of the size and growth of the follicles within the ovaries, how the progress correlates with where you are in your cycle or responsiveness to treatment stimulation. Also, we will assess the womb, lining of the womb, fallopian tubes and surrounding structures. This type of scan aims to ensure normal growth of the dominant follicle or stimulated follicles to appropriately time natural conception or any form of assisted conception (such as IVF), as well as to rule out any structural cause that might explain difficulty conceiving, recurrent miscarriages, generalized pelvic pain or any other related issue.

Please add your requested screening ultrasound, blood test, or health check-up while you are booking your ultrasound scan appointment.

This scan is usually performed every 1-2 days following your fertility specialist referral as part of your fertility check-up or IVF treatment to assess the growth of the dominant follicles or stimulated follicles correlating with where you are in your cycle or responsiveness to treatment stimulation.
  • You will be asked a series of questions related to your menstrual period and relevant medical history
  • We will perform Uterus, ovaries, adnexs’ and fallopian tubes ultrasound scan; count and measure follicles in both ovaries, and take high-quality images
  • Explain ultrasound findings and answer your questions or concerns within our scope of practice
  • Issue a digital copy of the report after or within 24 hrs, containing relevant images for you to keep for your records, or take to your GP or specialist
  • Recommend a follow-up ultrasound scan if necessary
  • Offer GP or specialist referral and a Blood Test if deemed necessary
There is a wide range of findings we may find during your Follicular Tracking Ultrasound scan assessment, aside for expected growth of the dominant follicle / stimulated follicles, the most common are:
  • Failure of the dominant follicle to develop, or regression of the dominant follicle
  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHHS)
  • Endometrial lining being too thin
  • Uterine fibroids (benign growth in the muscle of the womb)
  • Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled structure within the ovaries)
  • Endometrial polyps (benign growth within the lining of the womb)
  • Polycystic ovaries (suggestive of hormonal imbalance)
  • Uterine malformations (the shape of the womb may vary)
  • Hydrosalpinx (fluid within fallopian tubes)
  • Adenomyosis (condition when the cells of the lining of the womb implant within the muscle of the womb)
  • Endometriosis (condition when the cells of the lining of the womb implant within the surrounding pelvic structures)
  • Evidence of pelvic inflammatory disease
Depending on the Ultrasound findings or referrer request, you may need a blood test to correlate the scan results better.
This scan is generally performed transvaginally (internal scan) for optimal views on an empty bladder.
The Ultrasound Specialist will explain the procedure before your scan. You will be provided with a gown to respect your modesty in the likelihood of an internal scan. It will then involve the insertion of the tip of the transvaginal probe, covered with a latex-free probe cover with a small amount of sterile gel into the vaginal canal. Our specialist will have to slightly move the probe to assess the relevant anatomy and to produce high-quality diagnostic ultrasound images. You may feel mild discomfort during your ultrasound scan; however, you can stop or pause the examination at any moment. The Follicular Tracking ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 5-10 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.
You will get the results verbally after the scan, followed by a digital copy of the report with relevant images after or within 24 hrs.
Ultrasound scan itself is not considered harmful. Your safety is one of our top priorities; therefore, we strictly adhere to BMUS guidelines for the safe use of Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment and scanning times, as well as respect the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
Urgent health conditions can happen at any time of the day or night. In London Private Ultrasound, we offer emergency pelvic and follicular tracking ultrasound service late evenings, during weekends, Saturdays, or Sundays. Please call 07414165515 to book your urgent pelvic and follicular tracking ultrasound appointment now. (Terms and conditions apply)
Combining your ultrasound scan with one of our screening tests will give you a better picture of your health. We will recommend any beneficial screenings when you book online and will also recommend any further tests or screenings after your ultrasound scan.

Today, my wife had an early pregnancy ultrasound, and we are extremely grateful for Miss Ashleigh's patience and thorough explanation. We are reassured to know that our baby is doing well. Thank you, Miss Ashleigh, for providing such excellent care and support during this special time.

My practitioner, I think his name was Mr Mikhael, was very professional and kind. He put me at ease and was very patient. And gave me information as to the best socks to buy to avoid swelling in the heat.
