MORE DETAIL YOU NEED TO KNOW
When is the ovulation scan performed? ( every woman is unique)
Day 3 to 5: This scan is performed initially as it is the best time to examine the endometrium (lining of the womb) and to ensure there are no ovarian cysts present. Day one of your cycle is considered the first day of heavy bleeding.
Day 9 to 11 This scan would be performed to identify a dominant follicle or several follicles in an assisted cycle.
Day 14 to 16: This scan would be performed to confirm ovulation.
Day 18 to 20: This scan would be performed to confirm ovulation if it was not confirmed on day 16 and or to observe resolution of ovarian cysts.
You will often have three to four scans in any one cycle. A detailed gynaecological scan will be performed on your first appointment, subsequent scans within the same cycle focus on the ovaries and lining and are performed only tranvaginally and are lower in cost.
What happens during an ovulation scan?
Ovulation scans are performed on the first visit both externally and internally. The first scan will be detailed to check for pathology such as fibroids, endometrial polyps and abnormal ovarian cysts.
After the first scan and for ease and maximum accuracy the scan will be performed transvaginally. A long narrow probe designed especially to be inserted into the vagina is used. The ovaries, lining, cervix and uterus are examined in close proximity. The size of the follicles within your ovaries will be measured and documented. The thickness of the endometrium or lining of the womb will be measured and documented. The size and number of follicles are monitored with special attention paid to any large or dominant follicles. In the middle of the cycle one of these follicles will rupture confirming ovulation.
These findings help to determine the best time for sexual intercourse to assure successful fertilisation. For assisted cycles size and number of follicles is very important information for your treatment centre so that any medication can be adjusted dependent upon findings.
What’s included in the report?
The gynaecological survey will include clinical diagnostic information in regards to the:
- Adnexa (area around the pelvic organs)
- Endometrium (lining of the womb)
- Right ovary
- Left ovary
Results from your ultrasound examination will be available immediately after your appointment. We will provide a copy for you and your gynaecologist or fertility specialist.
If required, we are happy to email you a digital copy of both the report and imaging for you to send to your treatment centre.
