Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
I had gone through your query and understand your concern.
First i explain you what is follicle and then follicular study
. so that you can understand this easily.
Follicles are basic units of ovary. ie.. each ovary contains millions of follicles.
One of the follicle enlarge in each ovarian cycle (either in Right or Left ovary). This follicle contains the egg. The One enlarged follicle rupture and the egg is released into fallopian tube
The phenomenon of this egg release is called ovulation.
Follicular study is nothing but Monitoring the size and number of follicle by ultrasound
In follicular study, we used to monitor the which follicle is enlarging (either in right or Left ovary) and predict when to rupture and release the egg.
We advise to have unprotected intercourse
at the time of egg release. So that Ovum and sperm unite for fertilization.Thats why your doctor advised your husband to not travel on the follicular study days.
I used to do follicular study from 10th day of menstruation
to 15th of menstruation.
You can do Screening tests now whatever you want.
It is better to check the Thyroid
profile for the level of thyroid hormones.
Hope this helps.
