Endometrial scratch (ES)

Hi all - this recent article may be of value to some of you: theguardian.com/society/201...

I had ES with my first fresh cycle but not with my subsequent FET and did not get pregnant. I won't have another ES with our next cycle as I've recently had a biopsy taken and was advised the effects, similar to ES, will last for 3 months or so.

Hope you find the article interesting - I am encouraged there is so much more in the mainstream press about infertility issues.

That’s really interesting. I asked my consultant if I could opt for one for my upcoming FET but he said that my clinic no longer offered them!

I was a total advocate of the scratch - kind of happy this study came out. It was an added cost and stress....

I wouldn't bother if I ever have to have another cycle. Xxx

Read this earlier too and meant to share here too, so thanks. Over 3 years ago Oxford discouraged me from having the scratch. I presume it was because of my endo but they really didn't seem keen on it. I didn't have it and IVF worked for me but i realise that was only a part of a number of things and some good luck.

Goodluck with you next cycle. I did have embryo glue and embryoscope which I think helped. xx

I was a part of this study! I had the scratch and I did get pregnant but had a Bi chemical pregnancy sadly. I'm glad that this news is out there now. My consultant said that I would have the same chance of getting pregnant by having a polo mint as I would in having the scratch!! x

Thank you for sharing it's useful to get a fuller picture. So we can decide whether we want to pay for these add ons.
