Endometrial Scratching before IVF?

Postby Mama-in-cahoots » Wed Jan 20, 2016 1:58 am

Hi Ladies :hi:

I'm due to start another round of IVF end of Feb and my RE has recommended we try scratching the week before. He will also send some tissue away for testing to see if there's a problem with implanting.

I've not heard about this before and wonder if anyone has had this and did it work for you? I read a little about it and it seems the scratching can aid implantation rates by 70%. I'm willing to give anything a go at this stage!

Anyway, I'm booked to have this 20 min procedure on Feb 10th and would love to hear your experience before hand. Thanks!
