Endometrial Scratch?

Hi, I am due to start IVF in March. I have been under Dr Polson for a while at Salford Royal and have transferred to Manchester Fertility. I had the scratch when I had a lap and dye just over a year ago. Would you recommend paying for it again? I'm 23 and have had tubal surgery to remove adhesions in June followed by 6 failed Clomid cycles.

Endometrial scratch can increase implantation chances after 3 failed IVF cycles. It is not confirmed it can do anything beneficial before the first cycle. However there is no harm either. I am sure that you will be fully informed during your consultation of how to maximise your chances. Best of luck!
