‘Endometrial scratching’ is a procedure we may offer you if you have suffered from embryo implantation failure, or if you need to use a donor egg. It involves your endometrial lining being ‘scratched’ using simple equipment before your IVF cycle starts.
It is a simple and quick procedure, with minimal risk of complications, similar to undergoing a smear test. Studies have shown that by scratching the endometrial lining, it changes the way it grows back and seems to make it more receptive to any embryos which are later transferred.
Endometrial scratching is available if you are having your IVF treatment with us, or if you are having IVF treatment elsewhere but wish to have the procedure privately before your cycle begins.
