I have a dilemma, I've been asked if I want to do an endometrial scratch in the cycle before I do IVF. Apparently this helps the lining of the womb prepare for implantation however there are no statistics (or enough info about risks) for me to be 100% confident with it. Esp not for the first round of IVF. Also being told I will be on a long protocol (starting the bursellin in 21 days from when AF arrives, any day now) would mean missing a cycle to try naturally as apparently you can fall pregnant whilst on the down regulator injections. It's a real challenging decision as the idea of loosing a month of trying naturally whilst waiting for next period and to start stims is a killer!! Does anyone have any advice or info or first hand experience on this?
