Palm Beach Embryo Assisted Hatching (AH)
What Is Assisted Hatching & How Does It Work?
If you are currently seeking advice and information on the most effective forms of
ART (assisted reproductive technology) procedures, our team at Palm Beach Fertility Center can help. One of the most affective
procedures our fertility specialist uses is called assisted hatching (AH).
This procedure gives embryos assistance in the hatching process by helping
embryos hatch by breaking their enveloping protective layer. Some embryos
have a hard time hatching, which is an important step to successfully
implant an embryo. We often use assisted hatching in the
in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process.
When Is Assisted Hatching Helpful?
The blastocyst is held with gentle suction while a tiny needle delivers
an acid solution that wears away an area of the outer shell (the zona
pellucida). This helps the embryo "hatch" out of the shell and
implant in the uterine wall. Shortly after the procedure, the embryo is
transferred to the uterus.
- Assisted hatching is often recommended for the following circumstances:
- Couples who have had unsuccessful IVF cycles
- Where the female partner is over 37
- Where the female partner has high FSH levels
- Where there are poor quality embryos
- Where the embryos have thick shells
