Is endometrial scratch right for me?

Whether your journey to parenthood is just beginning or you’re bravely facing another cycle of IVF or ICSI, our focus is always to maximise your chances of a successful pregnancy. Although there are many steps to take for that to happen, an endometrial scratch followed by a saline rinse (hysterogram) is a key part of that process. Recent research suggests that scratching the lining of your uterus triggers a ‘repair reaction’, which may increase the chances of embryo implantation.

Who’s it for

You might want to have an endometrial scratch if…

  • You’re having an embryo transfer as part of an IVF, ICSI or frozen embryo transfer (FET) treatment
  • You want to maximise the chance of a successful implantation
  • You’ve experienced implantation failure before
  • You have suffered recurrent miscarriages
