Assisted Hatching

If you’ve have had numerous failed in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts, assisted hatching may be recommended in combination with IVF to help improve your odds of conception.

During the procedure, your doctor uses specialized instruments or solutions to artificially weaken the protective shell (the zona pellicuda) that contains the embryo by creating a small opening. In doing this, the embryo is more capable of hatching out of its protective layer and implanting itself into your uterine lining.

To learn more about assisted hatching, contact a specialist in your area today.
