We understand that the wait between treatment and pregnancy test can be an anxious time. We therefore offer a pregnancy blood test 12 days after your embryo transfer as an alternative to a urine pregnancy test on day 14.
A few weeks after your blood test an ultrasound scan can be performed to detect the presence and number of fetal heart beats. Further ultrasound scans may be carried out during the early part of your pregnancy to confirm viability of the fetus before you are referred back to your GP who will arrange for antenatal care at your preferred or local hospital. Pregnancy blood tests and additional ultrasound scans are optional and chargeable.
Should your pregnancy test unfortunately be negative then our team are always on hand to support you and discuss anything with you. You may book a follow up consultation whenever you feel ready. Please remember that we have trained counsellors offsite, whom you may visit should you feel the need to. The first counselling visit is free of charge to all patients.
