Uterine Biospsy Then IVF?

Would you believe that if you cause minor injury to the uterus and then implant the embryo for an IVF procedure that you increase your odds that the implantation will be successful?

According to a professor at the Institute’s Biological Regulation Department and the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) unit of the Kaplan Medical Center, this is exactly what they have found!

What they did first was to perform a uterine biopsy to the mom-to-be; the biopsy would then cause a minor injury to the lining of the uterus. Right after, the IVF doctors implanted the embryo and then hoped for a successful implantation.

What they found was that the women who took part in the damage and then implant procedure DOUBLED their chances of having a successful implantation and pregnancy. The doctors believe that it is because the uterus recognizes that it is damaged and then is for some reason more ready for the implantation of the embryo. It may be the method of healing itself that is similar to the process it goes through to embed the embryo.
