This test is to see when is the probable time for egg to get released from the ovary (Ovulation). This is needed for women who try naturally, those who are planning IUI treatment and also in women planning for IVF or ICSI or test tube baby treatment . It is performed using an internal scan (transvaginal ultrasound) to measure the growth rate of the follicle,which is a water filled structure in the ovary which contains the egg. This scan is done starting from day 2 of starting of periods in women who are trying naturally or IUI and is then performed at a regular interval. It helps in knowing the good time to try naturally,to do IUI and also to take the eggs our for IVF or ICSI. The follicular growth may need some medications in women who are undergoing IUI. The IUI cost may vary from 10000 INR to 30,000 INR or more. Giving tablets instead of injections for follicular growth can keep the IUI treatment cost

Ovarian reserve is the number as well as quality of the remaining eggs in both ovaries at a given age.
Egg quality directly affects embryo development & the ‘take home baby ‘rate.
Ovarian Reserve Test ( ORT ) helps to determine the chances of natural conception as well as with treatment.
It is very important to identify women with low ovarian reserve so that they can take important decisions regarding their own fertility in a timely manner.

Ovarian reserve can be determined with Ovarian Reserve Test ( ORT ):
Caution while interpreting result of ORT :
Ultrasound imaging makes use of ultrasound waves to visualise internal organ of body.
Baseline Pelvic USG
1st visit USG is done in detail to assess following conditions which may affect fertility :
Antral Follicle Count Scan (AFC scan)
Ovarian reserve is checked by doing Antral Follicle Count ( AFC) during initial visit itself.
Antral Follicles are tiny 2-10 mm follicle, each containing 1 egg.
Follicular Monitoring Scan
Growth of the follicle, uterus lining thickness & ovulation timing are checked by doing follicular monitoring USG.
Oocyte retrieval & Embryo transfer
Retrieval of oocytes ( eggs ) from ovaries & transfer of embryos into the uterus are done under ultrasound guidance.
USG guided ovarian cyst aspiration
Cyst aspiration can be done as day care procedure to drain ovarian cysts.
We offer following USG services using 2D & 3 D technique.
Use of ultrasound in men
For men ultrasound is done in few select cases to assess following conditions:
The aim of this discussion is to make anyone with curious mind to understand these condition better. It is not equivalent to detailed in person individualised consultation.
