Hello lovely ladies,
I'm a long time lurker, but infrequent poster. I get so much information and value from all of your conversations, so thank you!
Earlier this year I went through my first round of ICSI. We were fortunate to get 1 embryo for a day 2 transfer, but sadly this did not take. Last week we visited our clinic for our follow up appointment, and amongst other things they suggested for our next round that an endometrial scratch might be a good idea. When we analysed the results of the last cycle, our specialist's feelings (and our own) was that the reason we didn't get BFP was due to the embryo being a grade 3 quality. However they can't rule out that it wasn't an issue with my lining.
I'm now really uncertain whether to go ahead and have this procedure on our next cycle. Being completely honest, I don't like the idea of it because it seems such an unnatural process, but then I guess the whole IVF process is unnatural! My gut feel is that my lining is fine and that it was the embryo quality, but I need to make a decision and don't know what to do!
Does anyone else have experience of having an endo scratch? Do you think it helps/is sensible to do? I'd really appreciate hearing thoughts on this one.
