Fertility Scans in Birmingham
Many couples who are having Fertility Treatment abroad, or at a location some distance from their own home within the UK, want the facility to access an ultrasound scan on a particular day of the menstrual cycle.
Cherish-UK is able to perform the specialist scan and email the result to the chosen clinic. This allows more flexibility for couples and reduces the amount of time spent away from home during the treatment cycle.
Usually clinics request a scan to assess antral follicle count and or a scan to assess endometrial thickness and follicular development.
During your scan we will explain the findings to you and following your scan we will give you your images and email the report to you. We will email your report to your chosen clinic and if requested we will we email your images to your clinic.
Why is endometrial thickness important?
During a natural and stimulated cycle, it is important to assess the thickness of the endometrium (womb lining). Endometrial thickness needs to be 7mm or above for a pregnancy to be able to implant.
What is Anti-Mullerian Hormone?
This is a hormone blood test, which provides information regarding ‘ovarian reserve’. This is a term, which is used to reflect the size of the pool of eggs left within the ovary and gives an indication of the likelihood of success during a stimulated cycle. Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test can be done on any day of the woman’s cycle. Cherish-UK can organise this blood test if required.

"It was lovey to meet both Rachael and Jacqui today at our appointment. They both made us feel very welcome and at ease with our scans etc. My partner Kat has a great fear of needles and blood tests and they handled Kat superbly! She was made to feel very at ease, comfortable and reassured. I think this has helped Kat with her fear of needles! Great job Rachael! Thank you very very much to both of you. It was lovely to meet such warm and welcoming people and we would now only come back to this clinic in the future :) xx"

"I attended Cherish for an Endometrial lining scan & Intralipids infusion before my upcoming FET abroad. This was my first visit but it will most definitely not be my last. Very positive experience and cannot fault anything. From my initial enquiry email everything went smoothly and felt totally ease during my visit. We had to travel 2 & half hrs but would not hesitate to travel double that for the service Cherish provide."
"I have visited Cherish-UK 3 times this year, and I was never disappointed with the level of service, courtesy, professionalism and friendliness. I have had the pleasure of meeting all 3 lovely ladies, Diana for Endometrial scratch, Jacqui for Fertility scan and Rachel for blood tests. Having treatment abroad and needing scans and appointments at the very last moment I was happy that Cherish-UK is very accommodating appointments wise. Happy to recommend and happy to use in the future if needed. Good location in the town centre and not far from the train station - very handy. Thank you !!"

I am more than happy with service and follow up I get from Jacqui who goes that extra mile to make sure I understand it step by step and reassures me! Always on time for appointments I am never left waiting. Very happy with the ladies at Cherish! X"
Demi, Sutton Coldfield
"AMH bloods & fertility ultrasound scan - We were concerned at first with the distance to travel to this clinic (170mile round trip); however it was worth it! Friendly, knowledgeable, caring and very professional service. Won’t hesitate to use again in the future, and would highly recommend them. Thank you."
"Im so happy Ive found Cherish! I went there after being recommended by my clinic in cyprus. After coming accross so many hurdles and negativity from my own GP, its been an absolute pleasure to find these ladies. From the moment I first emailed, they have been so helpful, knowledgable and compashionate as well as accomodating and very quick to answer any questions or concerns Ive had, an absolute god send during an already diffucult time emotionally and physically. I attended and saw Jacqui to have the AMH blood test as well as the antral folicle scan and I had the result for the scan emailed to me and the clinic in Cyprus within 2 hours of leaving, fantastic service! Ive also booked with Rachel to go back for the endometrial scratch and will use them for any other treatment I may need in the future. I travelled 130 miles round trip but I wouldnt use anywhere else now, thankyou ladies, I only wish I'd found you sooner :)"

"My trans-vaginal ultrasound scan today was excellent. I was treated with respect and dignity and everything on the monitor was explained to me which put a lot of my worries to rest. My scan report was already in my Inbox by the time I got to work. Excellent, friendly service by people who understand and support you. I cannot recommend enough."
"Excellent service provided last year during the early stages of my pregnancy. They even sent scan reports and blood results direct to my IVF clinic in London which saved me a lot of time and money. Very thorough and welcoming too :)"
"After having my bloods and antral follicle count scan revealed fluid in my uterus, I was rescheduled for a repeat. Fortunately everything is ok, but through the whole process Jacqui, Diana and Rachel have all be so amazing caring and understanding. Everything was explained so clearly. I am now able to start IVF and Cherish are my chosen UK team, as I am having treatment in Cyprus, so will have my medication explained and monitoring scans with Cherish. I feel totally in safe hands. Thankyou all. As someone who is going alone at this Cherish are truly a blessing as a support system."
"After having extremely bad customer care in Oxford, I was given Cherish as an alternative for fertility scans. I was very impressed with the ease of booking and customer care. The knowledge of the staff was excellent and they were very helpful. Th e clinic in Oxford was just 5 minutes away, however we drove to Birmingham on 3 occasions because of the service. Thank you Cherish!!"
"I had a fertility scan, from start to finish I was put at ease and made to feel very comfortable. A very professional service, highly recommended :)"

At the appointment I was made to feel at ease straight away and was treated with care throughout, the scan images were explained in detail and any questions I had were answered fully, the report was emailed to me by the time I got home and I received the blood test results the next day, brilliant speedy service! Well worth paying for a great service and for the peace of mind that I have been given, thank you!"
"I came for a follicle count scan and blood tests to Cherish UK, from the first point of contact to the end conversation they made me feel so comfortable, it doesn't feel like i was dealing with a business as they were so friendly understanding and so efficient, it was a smooth experience and will definitely be highly recommending them, so glad I found them it was worth the travel, thank you again for all your help and confidentiality."
"I have had scans and a blood test at the clinic and on all visits staff have been great and supportive and answered any questions I have had. They are always quick to reply to emails and have changed appointment times for me without hesitation. I have met both Jaqui and Diana and they were lovely. Thank you "

"Really friendly and were very professional. It was easy to make an appointment and they really went out of their way to fit around me. I would highly recommend."
Lisa, South Croydon
"Brilliant place to go for your scans. So friendly and professional. Everything is explained to you in great detail and I was emailed a copy of my scans within 20 minutes of my appointment. Fantastic!!"
"I was so pleased with service, I found them online and upon reading feedback I have decided to go and have a scan done. From the minute I have contacted them they were so helpful, on arrival Diane was very welcoming and through the fertility scan she was expaling everything and answering questions from my husband and I. I would recommend this clinic to anyone "
"Everything was perfect . I was looking for the clinic to have a blood test for AMH and ultrasound for AFC as I needed them for fertility treatment. The ultrasound for AFC has to be done on the 2nd or 3rd day in the menstrual cycle. However, I could not find the clinic in London area. They did not open on weekends and full booking on weekdays. They were not flexible at all. Then I contacted Cherish-UK. It was fully booked but Diana did both Ultrasound and blood test early morning before seeing other patients. It was so impressive. She was so helpful and gave me a lot of advice for fertility treatment. Partner and I really appreciated everything she has done for us."
"I had a trans-vaginal ultrasound today for the first time in a year and a half. Jacqui was so friendly, kind and professional that it wasn't uncomfortable in the slightest and she explained everything she saw whilst showing me on the screen. It was the best scan I have had (and I've had quite a few after 3 rounds of IVF) as this time I felt part of it and reassured that everything is looking ok. This is exactly what you need when going through IVF which is extremely stressful."
Linda, Castle Donington
