Reasons for a Baseline Scan ..
Objective of the Baseline Scan
Our Baseline scan uses a high-resolution transvaginal ultrasound scanning to not only assess the general gynaecological health of the female reproductive organs but also potential issues which could impact fertility and show how many eggs (follicles) a woman has at any given point in time and is currently regarded as one of the best methods to check for your egg count (ovarian reserve).
Our Baseline ultrasound scan is performed using transvaginal ultrasound scanning. It can provide information about your womb (uterus), the lining of your womb (endometrium) and your ovaries including how many eggs (follicles count) a woman has at any given point in time (ovarian reserve). It is currently regarded as one of the best and safest methods to check for your egg count. I
Our Baseline ultrasound scan will not only check the overall health of the uterus and ovaries but also look for potential issues which could impact your fertility. Examples of potential problems include a low egg count or ovarian reserve, fibroids and ovarian cysts.

What does the Baseline Scan involve?
During the scan, you will be asked to uncover the area being scanned, hence we advise to wear suitable loose clothing and a small amount of ultrasound gel will be placed over your skin.
An ultrasound camera (‘probe’) will then be placed on top and moved along and around the area. This results in a picture appearing on the ultrasound monitor and patient TV which will be translated by the clinical specialist/ medical practitioner.
The ultrasound scan itself usually lasts around 10-15 minutes and is pain-free. At the end of the scan, a verbal summary of the results will be provided, as well as your opportunity to ask any questions.
How do I prepare*
An internal (Transvaginal) scan is recommended or may be mandatory for specific services instead of the scan over your tummy as it often provides greater detail and better information, please ask our customer care team for more information.
For internal scans you do not need to have a full bladder and will be asked to empty your bladder if full. Also please do arrive in clothing that can allow easy and comfortable access to your pelvic area.
- For scans over your tummy (Transabdominal) then we recommend you arrive with a comfortably full bladder. Please drink 0.5 litres of clear fluid approximately 30 minutes or so before your scheduled appointment and kindly try your best not to empty your bladder before the examination.
