Follicular tracking means that you are monitoring the number and size of your follicles during your cycle. Follicular tracking is an ultrasound transvaginal scan being used to evaluate the number and size of the ovarian follicles. Follicular tracking can be used to monitor your fertility and confirm the best time to conceive.
Follicular tracking is also being used to track the number and size of the ovarian follicles during IVF treatment.
The cost of this ultrasound scan is only £164.
The follicular tracking scan is the same as the transvaginal ultrasound scan, which means that a thin ultrasound probe is inserted in the vagina, so the sonographer can have a clear view of your uterus, the lining of the uterus and your ovaries. The procedure for this can is the same as the pelvic ultrasound scan.
You will be asked to lie on your back on the couch and a towel will be provided to cover yourself. A special lubricated probe will be inserted into the vagina and will be moved in different directions to obtain the best images. This scan might feel a bit uncomfortable, but should not be painful.
Follicular tracking should not be painful. It can, however sometimes be slightly uncomfortable depending on the angle of the ultrasound probe.
You should be able to resume your normal activities immediately after the scan.
A follicle is a small fluid-filled sac inside the ovaries containing immature eggs. The size and number of the follicles is an indication of your fertility and vary between women.
For ovulation to occur, the follicle needs to reach approximately 18-24 mm.
As the name suggests, the follicular tracking tracks the size and the number of your ovaries throughout your cycle, so it requires 1 to 3 scans commenting from day 7 – 9 of the first day of your period.
If you are having IVF treatment, your fertility specialist will advise you about the timings of your ultrasound scans.
