Female fertility test

Our Female fertility test is perfect for women that just want to check their fertility health and get some advice on optimising their chances of conceiving naturally. This unique 1 hour service allows you to visit one of our fertility clinics to get a clearer picture of your current fertility and what your potential future fertility may look like.

 

Our Advanced Ultrasound Scan is the foundation of our approach. We have pioneered the use of ultrasound to provide a detailed and accurate insight into fertility, negating the need for more invasive testing or repeat visits. Our Director of Ultrasound, Professors Stuart Campbell is a world renowned expert in the ultrasound and reproductive medicine.

Who is suitable for the female fertility test?

The Female Fertility Test is designed for women that just want a fertility check and at most get some advice on optimising their chances of natural conception. If you have already had fertility treatment or are seeking fertility treatment, an Initial Consultation & Scan is more suitable. This is because the purpose of an Initial Consultation & Scan is to develop a treatment protocol for you. This is not included in the Female Fertility Test

What to expect during your female fertility test

  • The fertility scan is internal and takes around 20-30 minutes. It can be performed at any time in the menstrual cycle.
  • The clinician will assess your ovarian reserve by looking at the antral follicle count and ovary volume. They will also check how healthy your uterus, ovaries and follicles are by examining the blood flow to each of them. Finally, the clinician will make sure that any problems that may affect your fertility such as ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids and polyps are identified.
  • The results will be available immediately after the scan, and the clinician will go through these with you in the consultation part of your fertility check. If they feel that you would benefit from further investigative fertility tests they will recommend these to you. If you would like to check your tubal patency, we also offer HyCosy at the clinic.
 

What does the fertility test include?

Advanced ultrasound scan

You will get an advanced ultrasound scan which is an internal scan and takes around 20 minutes, this can be performed on any day of your cycle. This fertility test looks at the number of follicles present within the ovaries, also known as the antral follicle count (AFC).

We'll also look at the quality of the womb lining and checking blood flow to the follicles and uterus which will give us a good estimate of your ovarian reserve.

Health check

Our clinician will check your height, weight and BMI. BMI is an important factor as being underweight or overweight could be affecting your fertility.

Check your BMI

Medical history review

We'll talk through your medical history, note any existing medical conditions, including your gynaecological history, and explore any known problems that could be relevant.

Consultation

After your scan and health checks you will then have a consultation with one of our experienced fertility consultants to discuss your results, answer any questions you might have and get advice.

If you have already had fertility treatment or are seeking fertility treatment, it is more appropriate to book an Initial Consultation and Scan which will include a potential fertility treatment protocol. A treatment plan is not included in the female fertility test.
