Follicle Tracking Scan
Ovulation Follicle Tracking Ultrasound Scan
Follicle tracking ultrasound scans are used to identify the growth of follicles in the ovaries and if follicles are present, to monitor them until ovulation occurs. A follicle is the technical term used to describe a small cyst in the ovary that contains an egg. The scans usually start around the 10th day of the menstrual cycle (day 1 is the first day of the period) however, this does depend on the length of the cycle. It is usual to have two or three scans generally on alternate days. The purpose of this type of scan is to assess the thickness of the endometrium (lining of the womb), which needs to reach 7mm or above to be suitable for a pregnancy to implant and to assess follicular growth and ovulation. For ovulation to occur the follicle needs to reach between 18-24mm.
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 email your images to your clinic.
What will the follicle tracking ultrasound scan show?
Remember every scan is different and the image quality can vary due to several factors.

"Just been for another follicle tracking scan and blood test with Jacqui. Lovely as always and so accurate and conscientious. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you x"
"We came to Cherish for follicle tracking scans during our fertility treatment and I am so relieved to have found them! Diana and Jacqui were so sensitive to our situation and so informative it made the whole process easier to get through. Thank you so much! We will definitely be back when the time comes for our pregnancy scans."
Natalie, Cleobury Mortimer
"I can highly recommend Cherish, I wished we had gone to them sooner, Jacqui is wonderful, so informative and caring, such a tremendous help, the atmosphere was lovely and happy and it helped get rid of all my concerns, the communication pre scans was also fabulous. A wonderful experience and I won't hesitate to go back to Cherish if I need too."
"Infertility is not a pleasant experience and feels like a roller coaster of emotions but the services provided by Cherish provide much needed information not available on the NHS. I have had follicle tracking scans and a scan to check a cyst has gone by both Diana and Jacqui and all times have felt reassured and confident in the service. Will definicely be using again!"
Susan, Sutton Coldfield
"Both my partner and I have visited this clinic, and were really impressed by how professional and friendly the service was from everyone we had contact with. Still currently going through treatment with Cherish on my second scan for follicle tracking, but feel in really safe hands and, although it is obviously a delicate and sensitive situation for some people, they make you feel completely at home."
"Since visiting Cherish, I really feel I have gained my confidence back. Diana has been utterly and amazingly supportive in my quest to get pregnant. The follicle tracking service is great! Cherish is not like the uncaring, money motivated companies out there that feed off couples with fertility issues. They have a real personal touch. They are brilliant and I would highly recommend to anyone with fertility issues looking for answers. :)"
"After suffering a missed miscarriage and having a ERPC a few months ago I needed reassurance that I was still ovulating as normal and to generally check my gynaecological health. I purchased the Follicle Tracking package which assess follicular growth over a period of time through 3 scans up to the point you ovulate. From start to finish my experience at Cherish UK was amazing! Rachel (the receptionist) was warm, welcoming and kind. My actual experience of the ultrasound scans were painless and quick with Diana and Jacqui explaining each part of the process, which was reassuring. Both wonderful sonographers took the time to listen to my concerns, and answered any questions I had. I felt welcomed, cared for and listened too, which is just as important a healing process as the technical side of medicine. I am very satisfied with the service I received and worth every penny! Keep up the good work, ladies x"
"Brilliant service, couldn't ask for more. Booked myself for ovulation scans and have to say the experience is just amazing. Jacqui is very professional and answered any of my questions. Explained exactly what has been happening inside of my body while ovulating. Couldn't ask for more. Really happy with the service. Would highly recommended Cherish UK to anyone who needs any help. Will keep in touch. Thank you very much for all your hard work. "
"I have had several follicle tracking scans at Cherish and both Diana and Jacqui have been amazing. The quality of the service has been excellent and I have been put at ease throughout. I have previously had scans at clinics closer to home but it's defiantly worth the journey for such a professional service. Thank you for all your help so far!"
"Diana was extremely helpful and sensitive when I attended for my Follicle Scan, she helped to put my mind at ease. I would recommend this service."
Claire, Sutton Coldfield
"I have previously had follicle tracking scans undertaken at Cherish and was very impressed with the professionalism, knowledge and experience I was met with and did not hesitate to book a early pregnancy scan. I was once again impressed with the high level of professionalism and how I was immediately put at ease. The appointment was very thorough and all questions answered to my satisfaction. I am really happy with the service I received and will definitely be booking another scan to check on progress soon."
"I have attended Cherish UK numerous times over the past few weeks for Follicle Tracking scans and can highly recommend. Both Diana and Jacqui are lovely ladies and made me feel relaxed, they explained everything well and have given me peace of mind."
"I decided to have follicle tracking scans at Cherish UK. From the initial enquiry conversation with Diana the whole process has been excellent. Both Diana and Jacqui have been very welcoming, professional and friendly. The clinic is very relaxing and the privacy and level of service is exceptional. I am glad I did these scans as it has given me an insight into better understanding my cycles and body. It is great that this kind of convenient service is available without referrals.

Thank you very much again to Diana and Jacqui."
"After searching for some possible answers on the Internet I found Cherish UK. I am so glad I did ...from a friendly chat on the phone I knew I was in safe hands. I was a little nervous as I had never had follicle tracking before but both Jacqui and Diana are lovely, calm and very knowledgable. Thank you both. "
Kyley, Sutton Coldfield
" I cannot sing the praises of Jacqui & Diana (Sutton Coldfield) enough. I first visited the clinic when we were trying for our first child. The service was always friendly, professional and personal and I therefore have not hesitated to return now that we are looking to extend our family. I would recommend Cherish to anyone and totally credit them with the fact that we now have our beautiful son."
"We decided to choose Cherish for our 2nd round of fertility treatment, follicle tracking, due to Diana helping us to conceive our daughter 3 years ago. Diana and jaqui are so friendly and knowledgeable. They always make me feel very comfortable in sometimes worrying situations. I would reccomend them to anyone."
Elize, Sutton Coldfield
"For years I thought I was not ovulating because of my polycysctic ovaries. I came to Cherish to see Jackie after a friend recommended the clinic. I was very nervous at first but jackie is very friendly and very professional she put me to ease straight away. I was very happy with my results, I am ovulating and now I understand my monthly cycle better. Thank you very much Jackie and I have already recommended Cherish to other friends. I will be coming back to you for my early pregnancy scan as soon as I conceive."
Shehnaz, Stoke on Trent
"Both Jacqui and Diana consistently provide a professional yet friendly approach. They take time to explain things in an understandable way and each time I have visited they have treated me with utmost respect. I would highly recommend this team."
"Diana has been an immense support to me since being diagnosed with POF. My husband and I are currently waiting for egg donation treatment at a clinic in Spain. Her professionalism and efficiency is second to none, she returns my calls promptly and has sent scan results directly to Spain on our behalf.
Flexible appointment times, competitive prices along with Diana being so caring and understanding, has made a very stressful and emotional time easier to cope with. I cannot recommend the service she offers highly enough!"
Jemma, Sutton Coldfield
"The service that my husband and I have received from Cherish has been exceptional. It is a pleasure to deal with Diana and Jacqui, nothing is too much for them and they are always so quick to respond to any questions that I have. They are always able to offer sound and detailed advice which I am very grateful for."
Leanne, Sutton Coldfield
"Discreet and reassuring treatment. Both nurses friendly and professional. Nice to have a picture of my potential baby so early in their life. Lovely to see Diana again too and lovely to be remembered despite the amount of clients/patients she's encountered!"
