What is Cycle Monitoring?

Cycle Monitoring involves blood work and ultrasounds during the first half of your menstrual cycle to follow hormone levels and the growth of follicle(s). Cycle monitoring will vary greatly in length and frequency depending on the patient. For most, it will involve several days of testing during a 1-2 week period.

Once the physician has created a treatment plan for you and an education session has been completed, you are now ready for your treatment cycle to begin.

Patient's Guide to Cycle Monitoring

Day 1

We consider Day 1 full flow bleeding by 3 pm. If full flow arrives after 3 pm, please consider the following day as Day 1.

Email your coordinator on Day 1 (even if it falls on a weekend) and book your first ultrasound.

Ultrasound

Can be done daily if required. All ultrasounds are by appointment only.

7:00-9:30am on weekdays

7:00-9:00am on weekends and holidays

All cycle monitoring ultrasounds are internal/transvaginal ultrasounds. You will need an empty bladder. Our ultrasound technicians are professional and courteous and are accustomed to scanning patients at all stages of their menstrual cycle.

The receptionists, nurses, and the rest of their team were always very accommodating and responsive to any questions/issues we had. I can't imagine going through this process without them.
