Types of Fertility Scan
Endometrial Thickness Scan
This is undertaken for women following an IVF programme. It may need to be done more than once. It gives guidance about the timing of IVF.
Follicle Tracking Scan
This is done to help women in monitoring their ovulation for fertility purposes. There will usually be more than one scan in a cycle. This involves measurement of developing follicles within the ovaries throughout a cycle without ovulation induction. These measurements also include the endometrial thickness (lining of the uterus) as this will influence whether the embryo will be able to implant.
