Pregnancy Assist Clinic
For a couple struggling to become pregnant, it can understandably be an emotional and stressful time.
It is estimated that one in six couples in Ireland are affected by infertility.
A great deal can be done before referring to a fertility clinic. We offer a number of tests that can help a couple ensure the conditions are right to get pregnant. For instance, a follicle tracking ultrasound helps identify if a women is ovulating and exactly when the follicle releases the egg. Having a fertility evaluation first can prevent the need for going down the road with expensive fertility treatment.
The services we offer couples can be viewed as a first stage intervention to ensure they can optimise their chances to conceive. If we do diagnose a fertility problem, we will then determine if prescription fertility drugs could work or if they should consult a fertility specialist for treatment.
New Road Clinic provides various scans that are crucial to the diagnosis of fertility issues and the success of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Basal scans are performed to determine the thickness of the endometrium and the size of the follicles in the ovaries. These scans provide valuable information to the fertility specialists, who use it to prescribe the right course of action.
IVF scans are performed during the IVF cycle to monitor the growth of follicles, the thickness of the endometrium, and the location of the fertilized egg. These scans help to determine the ideal time for egg retrieval and embryo transfer.
Fertility scans are an essential part of the infertility work-up. They help to identify any structural issues that could be causing infertility. Follicle scans are performed to determine the size and number of follicles in the ovaries. These scans help to predict ovulation and are crucial for the success of IVF.
Endometrium scans are performed to determine the thickness of the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus. The thickness of the endometrium is a critical factor in the success of implantation and pregnancy.
In conclusion, basal scans, IVF scans, fertility scans, follicle scans, and endometrium scans are essential components of infertility diagnosis and treatment. If you are experiencing infertility, these scans can provide valuable information to help determine the best course of action.
