Medical research is constantly improving the performance of IVF treatments. The research can involve the investment of millions of pounds by pharmaceutical companies, hundreds of hours by research teams in hospitals and research facilities and several years of testing to ensure that procedures and drugs are safe.

But sometimes it is a simple idea that can make a substantial change, and that’s what Endometrial Scratching is.

Endometrial Scratching is a process whereby the lining of the womb is intentionally damaged to cause an immune response which is thought to help with the implantation process.
