Failed IVF

If you have repeatedly failed IVF despite of having good quality embryos, you may be a good candidate for the latest IVF treatment called endometrial biopsy scratching or endometrial biopsy.

Endometrial Biopsy Scratching, Uterine biopsy, endometrial scratching IVFEndometrial Biopsy is a gentle endometrial injury caused by scratching patient’s uterine lining prior to embryo transfer. New research shows that local injury to the lining of the uterus can actually make the uterus more receptive to an implanting embryo and thus will increase one’s chances of pregnancy. How endometrial scratching works is not entirely understood. Scientists involved in studies believe that there may be two causes of increased implantation rates: white blood cells and gene switching.

The endometrial biopsy is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed either by our IVF clinics or by your local Ob/Gyn familiar with this procedure. The procedure is commonly referred to as a four quadrant uterine biopsy. MedVacation fertility doctors have been using endometrial biopsy scratching for some time now and it has proven to be successful for several of our patients. Although endometrial biopsy scratching is clinically effective, the timing of the procedures and its frequency are still being debated by fertility specialists. Fertility doctors agree that the scratch biopsy needs to be done once or twice before embryo transfer.

MedVacation fertility clinics offer this “new” treatment. This is also a testament to the quality of our fertility doctors. Contact us today for your free consultation and find out whether you may be a good candidate for endometrial scratching procedure.
