Anyone Done Scan to Check Ovulation?

Hi friends,

i need help and advice. I started my period today and I will be starting out on clomid from day 2(tommorrow) to day 6 and on day 12 my doctor has asked me to come back for an ultrascan. The nurse told me that the doc will check for the best dates to have sex to try for a baby.

Now my question is, what happens at the ultrascan? What is I am ovulating and what if I am not? What happens after that? I also have pcos. So anyone who has been to an ultrscan for checking ovulation on day 12, can share ur stories and experiences.

Normally when does a person ovulate? My cycles are long like 40-45 days.

Pls share ur ideas & experiences.

ovulation on scan
Hi
the scan will show whether ovulation has occured or about occur.
On day 12 the sonographer will check how many mature follicles depending on size over 18 mm , are present in each or either ovary.
when follicles rupture at the time of ovulation , free fluid is noted by scan in the pelvis, that means egg is liberated and that is the time for timed intercourse.
hope it helps. regards dr uzma
