Pelvic ultrasound scans are performed to assess the female reproductive organs. Your consultant will discuss any pathology (abnormal scan findings) that is noted following your scan.
A series of scans may be performed to monitor follicle development (small fluid filled sacs within each ovary where the eggs mature), particularly during the stimulation phase of your treatment.
When you become pregnant, we offer scans up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The first scan at 6 weeks of pregnancy (4 weeks post embryo transfer) is used to confirm location and viability of the pregnancy. The second scan will be carried out at 8-10 weeks to monitor pregnancy development.
At the second scan we offer antenatal screening tests called Non Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT). This highly sensitive blood test checks for common foetal chromosomal abnormalities such as Down’s syndrome.
The HyCoSy is a procedure to test the patency of the fallopian tubes.
A small catheter is introduced into the neck of the womb and an ultrasound probe is then placed in the vagina. A dye is injected into the womb and its flow into the fallopian tubes is observed to check normal function.
