How Assisted Hatching Enhances IVF Treatment

One of the causes of IVF Treatments failing is that a fertilized embryo may not attach itself to the lining of the uterus. By reducing the chance of this kind of failure, the role of Assisted Hatching in IVF is crucial. A fertilized embryo must hatch, by breaking out of a layer of proteins developed around it, and implant itself to the womb. Assisted Hatching helps this hatching process occur, and ensures that once a fertilized embryo is placed in the womb, it attaches itself to the uterus lining. Due to the skill, precision, and care required in this procedure, it is regarded as a revolutionary technique in the field of fertility treatments.


There are two ways to perform this procedure. One is where an acidic solution is used, to dissolve a small part of the zona pellucida, the outermost layer of the embryo. A modern technique of performing the procedure is by Lazer Assisted Hatching, where a computer operated micro-laser is used, to make a small opening in the zona pellucida. This enables the cells to easily escape through the hole. Once the procedure has taken place, the embryo is kept in an incubator for a day, and then transferred to the uterus. The Assisted Hatching IVF success rate is high, enabling a pregnancy to occur where there was previously no hope.


Assisted Hatching is not recommended to everyone who opts for IVF, as it is not always required. There are a few types of people who may require Assisted Hatching in IVF Treatments.

  • Women who are over the age of 38.
  • Women with a production of low-quality embryos.
  • Women who have had 2 previously failed IVF cycles.
  • Women whose embryos develop a thicker than normal zona pellucida.
  • Women with high FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) levels, which indicate a lower reserve of eggs.
