What is follicular monitoring?
To comprehend the follicular monitoring procedure, we must first understand the concept of a follicle. A follicle is a cluster of tissues or cells that forms in the ovaries of women. In her lifetime, a woman can produce four lakh follicles on average. Each follicle can only release one egg during its lifetime.
Follicular monitoring is a crucial part of ovarian follicle examination. It aids in determining the best time for your egg to mature. It’s a good idea to check the size and the follicle’s health. During your menstrual cycle, the treatment involves scanning your ovaries.
Follicle research and pregnancy research are inextricably linked. When a couple wants to plan a pregnancy, they must try to predict when ovulation will occur.
What is the procedure of follicular monitoring?
At our IVF clinic, we suggest that you undergo follicular monitoring in India at the most reasonable time. You usually require one to three scans for the procedure. We perform these scans at various intervals from the seventh to the ninth day of your last menstrual cycle. The steps in the process are as follows.
Preparation: the specialist performs the follicular study on your menstruation’s second day. Just before the procedure, you must free your urinary bladder. It’s a cycle that repeats itself until ovulation occurs. You should dress comfortably and take any medicines that your doctor has prescribed.
Scanning: For scanning, you go to a slightly dark examination room. The specialist performs an endovaginal scan. Further, the specialist inserts a tiny probe into your vaginal canal. Then we look for your uterus and ovaries on the scan monitor. We can examine your uterus and ovaries much better with a vaginal scan. As a result, it’s simple to keep track of the follicle. A baseline scan is performed on days 2 and 3 to look for the uterus and ovaries. On day 8, we have a second scan, and on day 10, we have a third scan.
Examination: Transvaginal scanning aids in providing us with more transparent images of your inner organs during the examination. The scan accurately assesses the health, size, and shape of the below body parts:
- Your uterus/womb
- The endometrium or uterus’s wall
- Both of your ovaries
- Your adnexa (pelvic area)
We use ultrasound to scan while performing the examination. It aids in the counting of follicles and the measurement of their diameter.
