Follicular Tracking

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.

All your Questions Answered on your ultrasound diagnosis
More Information

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.

My partner went to the clinic to have three different scans today.The doctor was great. He explained the findings while was doing the scans. He gave a lot of advices about the blood tests to perform in order to explore the findings further. The clinic is clean and the prices are really competitive. I highly recommend the clinic.

I am very satisfied with the service I received. I had two appointments, both scheduled at very short notice due to anxiety over symptoms similar to a previous DVT. Two thorough scans and a full explanation of the results put my mind at ease. The professional yet friendly approach of everyone I met made it a stress-free experience for me. Highly recommended.

I had a good experience with LPU, the premises were simple and there is no fancy waiting room but what you do get is a caring, quality, professional service at a competitive price, which I think really is what most people want. My concerns and questions were answered, my report was clear and the staff were kind and friendly. Would return and would recommend.
