The pregnancy test

The pregnancy test

You are asked to come to TLCRM, 14 to 16 days after the embryo transfer for a pregnancy test, irrespective of whether you have menstruated or not. This involves you bringing an early morning urine sample. If this test is positive then we will ask you to return to us 2 or 3 weeks later for an ultrasound scan.

We obviously hope that every patient will become pregnant but in reality 55-70% patients depending on your age group do not conceive. You will understandably feel a sense of grief in the event of failure. Please do not hesitate to ask for help in the form of counselling support with our psychologists. We will also arrange a review consultation after the completion of each treatment cycle. At this time we will have an opportunity to discuss those factors that may have become apparent during your treatment and consequently may require modification in further attempts.
