Laser-Assisted Hatching

We will help you begin the foundation of parenting!

In an effort to enhance embryo implantation, Laser-Assisted Hatching (LAH) is utilised in conjunction with traditional IVF/ICSI. Using specific laser and micromanipulation methods, a tiny hole is created in the embryo’s shell (Zona Pellucida). This process speeds up the implantation and hatching of the embryo. Here are the details of LAH.

Why is Laser-Assisted Hatching done?

Assisted hatching may increase the conception rate under the following circumstances:

  • When you are 38 years of age or older
  • If you’ve had two or more unsuccessful IVF rounds.
  • Your embryo is of poor quality.
  • If your FSH level has increased.
  • If you want your IVF round to be successful, you can ask the doctor to adopt the LAH technique.

Benefits & Risks

When carried out by a skilled embryologist, laser-assisted hatching can benefit individuals & people who might otherwise struggle to conceive due to embryos with excessively thick shells. When compared to aided hatching using mechanical force or an acidic solution, the use of a laser really further lowers the chance of problems.

It’s crucial to recognise that there are some risks associated with the process. The embryo may be harmed during the surgery, which might kill it or cause birth abnormalities or identical twins. It can also eventually lead to no pregnancy and the need for another IVF cycle/round. Therefore, it is highly crucial to discuss with your doctor and know the possibilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

The goal of hatching is to aid the embryo in shedding the membrane that covers it in order to facilitate implantation. Although not always essential, it can raise the pregnancy rate.

When employing the In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) technique, the fertilised eggs often break through their shell and begin to implant one or two days following the fifth day after the transfer of the IVF blastocysts. This indicates that the implantation happens 7 to 8 days after the egg is fertilised.
