What is the purpose of a follicle tracking scan?

The purpose of a follicle tracking scan is to accurately predict when you may expect ovulation which will help increase the chance of the egg becoming fertilised.

A transvaginal/internal scan may be necessary during this scan in order to gain a clearer view. If you require a female sonographer or a consultant, please speak to one of our advisors at the time of your booking.
