Follicular Monitoring Test

Sometimes when a woman finds it difficult to conceive the best way to help pregnancy happen is to assess the exact time of ovulation. A Follicular Monitoring Test can be used to pinpoint the exact time when a follicle ruptures and releases an egg. This way couples know the exact time to engage in intercourse. This test has been known to significantly increase the chances of pregnancy.

Follicular Monitoring Test and IVF Treatment

The Follicular Monitoring Test is also an important test in the IVF process. Patients are treated with fertility drugs containing hormones to stimulate the ovaries and promote the maturation of eggs. This process of ovarian stimulation is used in IVF as we need multiple oocytes to form to increase the chances of successful pregnancy. Ovarian stimulation in milder forms is also used when women do not ovulate, or where the quality or quantity of eggs produced are not sufficient to achieve a successful pregnancy.

How many follicular monitoring scans are done?

You may be required to undergo 4 to 6 follicular scans. This is generally a painless process conducted through a transvaginal ultrasound and the procedure is usually over within 10 minutes. The Follicular Monitoring Test is used to assess ovarian follicle growth at regular intervals, also called follicle tracking. Follicular monitoring may begin on Day 2 or 3 of the menstrual cycle to assess a baseline size of the follicle. Subsequent tests will show the progress of the follicles.
