Laser-Assisted hatching of Embryos

Pregnancy does not occur unless and until the embryo hatches and gets implanted into the uterus.

We all know that pregnancy occurs only when the embryo is implanted into the uterus. Fertilization is not the last step of fertility treatment. Pregnancy does not occur unless and until the embryo hatches and gets implanted into the uterus; pregnancy does not occur. In some cases, after being transferred into the uterus, the embryos do not hatch, leading to a failed IVF cycle. When the embryo’s outer shell is too hard to be hatched, an external force is applied to hatch the embryos before transferring them into the uterus.

What is leaser assisted hatching: -

Leaser-assisted hatching is an IVF technique through which a tear or opening is made on the embryo’s outer layer, making it easier to hatch. In some cases, the embryo’s outer layer becomes thicker than usual, making it difficult to hatch. The freezing or thawing process of the embryo can contribute to this hardening or thickening of the outer shell.

This is done to increase the chances of embryo hatching. The less difficult it is for an embryo to hatch, the better chances of pregnancy it brings.
