Assisted Hatching

Assisted hatching is a technique that is used as part of IVF therapy. During the hatching process the zona pellucida (the embryo’s outer shell) is thinned or partially opened. This allows the embryo to leave (hatch) this outer shell and attach to the mothers womb.

This technique is often used when the embryos ZP (zona pellucida) or outer shell is observed to be thick; it is also often utilized in patients that have failed IVF treatments in the past, advanced maternal age or with patients that have elevated FSH levels.

Once a specific treatment plan is outlined to you feel free to have our doctors or embryologists discuss hatching with you. Not everyone needs hatching, but when indicated it can optimize your chances of a successful pregnancy.

Hatching at American Reproductive Centers is done utilizing the latest in laser technology and the most advance micromanipulation microscopes available.
