Folliculometry is a non-invasive clinical method that is used to measure the growing follicles in the ovary. It is performed during a simple transvaginal ultrasound examination on certain days of the menstrual cycle.


Folliculometry is used to prove the presence of a dominant follicle and ovulation. Documentation of ovulation allows planning of controlled coitus the aim of pregnancy. The method is also used to monitor the growth of the antral follicles during the process of controlled ovarian stimulation.

Usually, folliculometry is planned on the 8th-9th day from the beginning of the menstrual cycle. Then, follow-up scans are scheduled between the 10th and 16th day until ovulation. In certain cases, it is possible to move the examinations a little earlier or later depending on the length of the menstrual cycle.


Folliculometry can also be complemented by some hormonal tests. During the early follicular phase (between the 3rd and 5th day of the menstrual cycle), the levels of LH, FSH, estradiol are monitored. In the middle of the menstrual cycle (between the 11th and 16th day), FSH, LH, estradiol and progesterone are tested, and in the secretory phase (on the 21st day) - progesterone. Regardless of the phase of the menstrual cycle, it is appropriate to monitor the levels of testosterone, prolactin and TSH.
