Endometrial Scratch Biopsy

SUCCESS. The Endometrial Scratching Biopsy at the LIV Fertility Center in Mexico has the ability to repair the uterine lining, and assists the lining to become more receptive to embryo implanting — ultimately increasing the chance of pregnancy.

AmyColleen2An endometrial scratch is a procedure used to help embryos implant more successfully after In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment. It is generally only used for patients who have experienced multiple unsuccessful IVF cycles, despite the transfer of good quality embryos.

An endometrial scratch is best performed in the week prior to the start of an IVF or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) cycle.

Endometrial Scratch Procedure

Sometimes referred to as an endometrial biopsy, the Endometrial Scratch involves taking a biopsy of the lining of the uterus, called the ‘endometrium’, using a thin catheter that is passed through the cervix.

The pipelle or catheter is moved back and forth and rotated in order to cause disruption. This is similar to an endometrial biopsy performed by gynecologists.

It is a simple, low-cost procedure. No anesthetic is required, however our fertility specialists may advise you to take over-the-counter pain medication before the procedure as it may cause some mild pain.
