Antral Follicle Count Scan

Antral follicle Count Ultrasound Scan

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.

is able to perform the specialist scan and email the result to the chosen fertility 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.

What is antral follicle count?

Women are born with all of their eggs; from the age of about 25 years the pool of eggs starts to diminish and can never be replenished. It takes 3-6 months for eggs to develop and mature. Eggs develop within follicles; the follicles start to mature becoming pre-antral and then become an antral follicle. Antral follicles are visible by vaginal ultrasound. By performing a scan early in the menstrual cycle, ovarian reserve can be assessed.

Generally less than 4 antral follicles represents an extremely low count with no or very poor response to ovarian stimulation expected. 11-20 antral follicles represent a normal count. These are guidelines only; interpretation of results is never done in isolation. Other results will be considered along with the antral follicle count result before a treatment regime is considered.

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 the report to your chosen clinic and if requested we will we email your images to your clinic.

What will the antral follicle ultrasound scan show?

Antral Follicle Poor Count
Antral Follicle Normal Count
Antral Follicle Good Count

Remember every scan is different and the image quality can vary due to several factors.

What Cherish-UK Clients Say About Us

"Follicle count - Jacqui was amazing so reassuring and calm during the scan, she put me at ease and gave clear direction for my scan. Jacqui provided detail feedback during the scan and answered all my questions. I will certainly use the service again and recommend it to friends. Thank you so much."

A, Birmingham


"We have been there a few weeks ago and everything was lovely. It was really easy to contact to the girls by email and phone. Diana explained everything about our antral follicle count scan and she sent really quick to my clinic in Spain. My doctor in Spain said they were really proffesional and they made a reaaly good job. I can not recommend enough. Thank you so much."

O and P, Solihull


"I saw Jacqui this morning for an antral follicle count scan. I can't praise her, or the other staff enough! I also had an FSH blood test which was carried out quickly and professionally. The process of fertility checking has been immeasurably tough, stressful and emotional so far, and Jacqui and the team made it so much easier. Booking was so quick and easy, and the whole process was professional, thorough and efficient. Jacqui gave us more information in one consultation than we have had the entire journey so far! I can't recommend Cherish UK enough. Plus they are so affordable and so friendly and understanding. A true god send.'"

Charlotte, Birmingham


"I am a professional working woman over the age of 35 and was concerned about my fertility. I visited Cherish to get an understanding of what to expect - I had the ultrasound scan and Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test. Jacqui and the team were super - they made me feel really relaxed and quickly helped me to understand my results. Mostly, they helped me to get peace of mind. And I couldn't believe how easily the practise is to get to!"

Liz, Birmingham
