Ultrasound examinations during a specific time of the menstrual cycle enable mapping of the egg growth in the ovary and study of the changes in the lining of the womb.
Natural cycle monitoring consists of 2 to 3 ultrasound scans (with the fertility nurse) starting on day 7 to day 10 and helps to pinpoint the day of natural ovulation to enable the best chance of conception. It also helps to detect potential problems and sometimes answers simple questions.
The scans are often combined with urine tests for ovulation and laboratory tests, such as measurement of progesterone hormone levels, to give a complete picture.
Our fertility nurses will carry out the ultrasound scans. The findings of the scan(s) are relayed to Mr Shah and/ or Mr Gudi and conveyed to patient.
