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.


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. The Assisted Hatching IVF success rate is high, enabling a pregnancy to occur where there was previously no hope.


There are a few types of people who may require Assisted Hatching in IVF Treatments.

  • Women who are over the age of 38.
  • With a production of low-quality embryos.
  • 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.
