I’ve noticed a lot of people have been asking about endometrial scratch recently and whether they should have it at their clinic alongside their IVF.

There have been suggestions that it may improve outcomes but it is clear that people aren’t really sure whether it is really worthwhile – and the costs of the procedure can vary hugely from one clinic to another.

It will certainly help as a starting point if you aren’t quite sure whether to go ahead and pay for a scratch.
