Most of the time, some women are faced with the challenge of knowing if they are ovulating; especially women who have had early miscarriages or women who are on Clomid. If you find yourself in this shoe, then you are the reason we are here. Introducing, follicle tracking!
What is Follicle Tracking?
Follicles are fluid-filled sacs which develop on the ovary and contain the egg. For a woman to ovulate, the egg is released from this follicle and journey along the fallopian tube.
Follicle tracking is a medical service which allows women to know if and when exactly they ovulate. It is a natural method of assisted conception.
How Follicle Tracking Works
Follicle tracking involves a series of ultrasound scans which usually takes between 5 and 10 minutes to perform. Using a sterile transducer and paying particular attention to the follicles within the ovaries, this tracking is done to assess how the follicles are developing. It generally starts around day 9 to day 14 of the menstrual cycle. The scanning continues until the follicle(s) have disappeared, and ovulation has commenced. We can then advise our patient, usually a couple through this technique on when to have sexual intercourse. The essence of this is to optimise the timing of the egg and sperm to meet. If, however, a couple has discovered that the semen quality is suboptimal, then we will schedule an Intrauterine Insemination (IUI).
Who needs Follicle Tracking?
The following persons do need follicle tracking:
- Women who are not sure when they ovulate
- Couples who are not conceiving after 6 – 12 months of trying
- Women who do not ovulate
Follicle Tracking at the Gynaecology Clinic
An ultrasound scan performs this process as part of fertility treatment for pregnancy. We scan your ovarian follicles and take pictures of the internal organs for further analysis. By inserting a small plastic probe into the vagina while maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene, this process is relatively pain-free. Our qualified doctor studies the pictures of tissues containing eggs and the endometrial lining to determine your ovulation period. This procedure is vital for women trying to conceive through assisted reproductive techniques.
At the Gynaecology Clinic, we have some of the best ultrasound equipment for excellent scanning. We aim at helping you conceive without putting you at risk. We do it safely every now and then.
