An endometrial lining scan is an ultrasound to check on the lining of the womb. This detailed gynaecological scan will measure the thickness and appearance of your endometrial cavity, and assess pathology to detect problems such as fibroids or polyps.

Investigative requirements will vary depending on the medical purpose of your scan, but some of the commons reasons include the following;

  • menopause management
  • monitoring the effect of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the uterus
  • detection or monitoring of fibroids
  • detection of endometrial polyps
  • checking for causes of irregular bleeding
  • baseline screening for ovarian cancer
  • assist in fertility treatments such as IVF/IUI
  • assist in natural conception
  • determining the position and location of an IUCD or coil

In the case of IVF, a baseline endometrial lining scan will likely be requested at the start of a patient’s menstrual cycle and ahead of administering any medication. Following stimulation of the cycle, an endometrial lining scan might be further requested every few days to monitor response to medication. Your specialist will be ready to organise your embryo transfer only when the endometrial cavity reaches an optimal thickness and structure.

Please note that whilst our sonographers will provide detailed ultrasound reports and imagery, they are not responsible for interpreting your ultrasound findings. The report will need to be passed on to your referring medical or fertility specialist, who can provide ongoing continuity of care.

Our sonographer will likely ask you questions about the purpose of your visit and might enquire about your existing treatment plan to ensure that the ultrasound scan is tailored to your needs, with accurate reporting in the right areas.

This transvaginal ultrasound involves placing a small probe (roughly the size of a tampon) into the vagina. This should not be painful. The TVS is performed with an empty bladder, so we request that patients empty their bladder no more than 30 minutes before examination.
