This procedure involves scraping a small amount of tissue from the endometrium shortly before menstruation is due—between 11 and 13 days following ovulation. It should ONLY be performed after a pregnancy test reveals that the woman is not pregnant. This test is often used to determine if a woman has a luteal phase defect- a hormonal imbalance that may prevent a woman from sustaining a pregnancy because not enough progesterone is produced. Due to inconsistencies in evaluating these specimens and uncertainty over appropriate treatments, fewer infertility specialists consider this an important test.
