Cycle Monitoring

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.

Day 1

Day 1 is the first day of your menstrual cycle. Email your coordinator on Day 1 and book your first ultrasound.


7:00-9:00am daily (including weekends and holidays)

All cycle monitoring ultrasounds are internal/transvaginal ultrasounds.  Our ultrasound technicians are professional, courteous, and are accustomed to scanning patients at all stages of their menstrual cycle.
