For those undergoing IVF treatment – or for those who are experiencing difficulties with fertility, Ultrasound Direct Portsmouth offers a Fertility Pelvic Scan for only £99.
This scan is available to women of a child bearing age who are at least 16 years old.
What the scan is for
This scan is usually used to:
- Estimate the time of ovulation and measure the endometrial thickness for assisted conception.
- Measure the follicles and endometrial thickness prior to private IVF treatment in the UK or abroad.
- Detect the presence and position of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD or coil).
- Check the wellbeing of the uterus and ovaries before conception.
The scan provides a detailed look at the size, shape and condition of the:
- Pelvic area
- Endometrium (Womb lining)
Approximately 30 minutes with a 10 to 15 minute scan.
Preparing for your appointment
- You’ll need to expose the lower part of your abdomen, so ideally wear a two-piece garment like a skirt and trousers.
- Drink 500 ml or 1 pint of clear fluid about one hour before your appointment. Milk and fizzy drinks aren’t recommended. Please don’t empty your bladder until after your appointment.
- Don’t discontinue any medication you normally take.
