What Exactly is "Womb Scratching"?

October 10, 2017
Katie Visco

Laurence A. Jacobs, M.D. of Fertility Centers of Illinois introduces a technique that she's used in her practice to help women with a common issue. 

When IVF or IUI fails due to the endometrium not being receptive for embryo implantation, she turns to endometrial scratching, also known as womb scratching. This is a biopsy of the endometrium, the lining of the womb, which can cause inflammation that is receptive to the implantation of the embryo. Jacobs discusses this fertility treatment and her success with endometrial scratching throughout the years, especially with patients who've struggled with IVF.
