Fertility Scan




This gynaecological scan is available to women of child bearing age.

    We will perform a detailed scan to look at the size, shape and condition of the:

    • uterus
    • lining of the womb
    • both ovaries
    • pelvic area

    Common examples for having this ultrasound scan are:

    • evaluating the wellbeing of the uterus and ovaries before conception
    • estimating the time of ovulation and measuring the endometrial thickness for assisted conception, measuring follicles and endometrial thickness prior to private IVF treatment in the UK or abroad
    • detecting the presence and / or position of an intra uterine contraceptive device (IUCD or Coil)

      We will provide a Sonographer report at the time with a Medical Follow Up Recommendation if necessary.

      Please contact us if you would like to know more about our health scans.
