What is assisted hatching?

Assisted hatching is a laboratory technique used during in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help the embryo hatch out of its protective outer shell (zona pellucida) before it is transferred to the uterus. It involves creating a small opening or thinning the zona pellucida to facilitate embryo implantation.

Why is assisted hatching performed?


Assisted hatching may be performed in certain cases where the zona pellucida is thickened or the embryo quality is deemed to be poor. It is believed to help embryos with a thicker zona pellucida or those that have previously failed to implant increase their chances of successfully implanting in the uterus

Who is a candidate for assisted hatching?

Assisted hatching may be considered for certain patients, including those with advanced maternal age, embryos with a thick zona pellucida, previous failed IVF cycles, or poor embryo quality. It is typically evaluated on an individual basis, and not all patients undergoing IVF will require or benefit from assisted hatching.

Is assisted hatching performed on all embryos?

Assisted hatching is not performed on all embryos during IVF. The decision to perform assisted hatching is typically based on factors such as the age of the woman, embryo quality, and previous treatment outcomes. Not all embryos require or benefit from assisted hatching, and it is determined on a case-by-case basis.
