I'm due to start my 4th ivf attempt and wondering if I should have the endo scratch again? Last 2 attempts I've had the scratch and got a bfn. I've since found I have immune issues so doing a full immune cycle this time.
Anyone got an immune bfp ? Did you have the scratch?
TBH I found it really a awful experience, so if it makes not much difference then I'd really rather not..
Hi Abbie, I got my BFP on my 4th ivf attempt which was my second with full immune treatment and first cycle with a scratch. First full immune cycle was fresh and second was FET. I also had 2 put back rather than 1 and 1 stuck. Sorry to hear you had a hard time with the scratch, I didn't even feel it when I had mine. It is hard to know what to do for the best isn't it. I had acupuncture before and after transfer with my fresh immune cycle then decided not to have it with my FET. Good luck, I hope it is 4th time lucky for you too.
I have minor immune issues and had 6 cycles overall. Last 3 with immune drugs (steroids, intralipids etc) and last one with scratch as well. The last one took and I've got a toddler. Having more ivf now and I've opted for scratch (as well as steroids but not intralipids as different clinic and they don't offer) as it was the only difference from unsuccessful cycles. That's just anecdotal - since there are no decent studies it's hard to know what can tip the balance.
