Laser Assisted Hatching

Laser assisted hatching

If you’ve undergone IVF, you’re probably aware that a fertilized egg does not guarantee a pregnancy. To ensure a healthy pregnancy, the embryo must implant on the uterine wall after being transplanted to a woman’s uterus. IVF failure occurs when an embryo fails to hatch and implant.

If you are experiencing IVF failure owing to unexplained reasons or a poor prognosis with IVF treatment, you will be advised for laser-assisted hatching. The purpose of laser assisted hatching is to overcome the obstacles to implantation or successful pregnancy.

In the IVF procedure, fertilized eggs are kept in the lab for 2 to 5 days so they can divide and form an embryo. To achieve a pregnancy, a healthy embryo is subsequently inserted into the uterus of a woman. A protective shell known as zona pellucida surrounds the embryo at this stage of development. This protective coating must spontaneously rupture for implantation to take place. However, in some circumstances, the embryo’s outer layer hardens, making it challenging to hatch and implant. It becomes one of the causes of female infertility.

In laser-assisted hatching, a tiny crack is made before the embryo is inserted in your uterus in the hopes that this hatching would aid in the embryo’s implantation. This procedure facilitates effective implantation leading to pregnancy.

Laser assisted hatching procedure

On the third day following the IVF cycle, while the embryo is still in the lab, the laser assisted hatching technique is performed. In this method, a breach in the zone pellucida is made using a specialized laser. The safest and most efficient method uses laser technology, which enables a more regulated approach. Although creating a tiny fissure in the zona pellucida seems like a straightforward procedure, it actually requires careful steps and a qualified expert. Specialized equipment is required in the embryology lab to carry out this cutting-edge technology. It simply takes a few seconds to complete the process.

In order to generate an opening, laser shots are employed in this method to soften the zona pellucida. The laser is used with the utmost care and precision without coming into close touch with the embryo. The embryo’s security is ensured by this procedure.

Benefits ofLaser assisted hatching

When compared to other aided hatching techniques, laser-assisted hatching is more accurate. Because the embryo is not handled manually during the laser assisted hatching procedure, there are fewer chances of injury. The safety of the embryo is ensured by the program’s predetermined laser accuracy. Pregnancy success rates are compart increased by hatching with laser assistance.

Additionally, laser assisted hatchingmay result in multiple pregnancies. Multiple pregnancies are typically linked to IVF, and the laser assisted hatching technique enhances this likelihood even further. If you’re wondering whether laser assisted hatching could cause congenital defects in babies, the answer is no. Many studies have proven that the laser assisted hatching technique does not result in any congenital impairment.

It does not mean that you will be recommended to get laser hatching if you are undergoing IVF. According to experts, your fertility specialist will be able to assess if laser hatching can help you after reviewing all of your medical records and infertility history.

Why laser hatching is done?

In generally, assisted hatching may improve the chance of getting pregnant in the situations listed below.

  • If you’ve had two or more failed IVF cycles.
  • If your follicle stimulating hormone(FSH) and follitropinlevel has increased
  • Your embryo’s quality is poor.
  • When you’re older.
  • Unexplained infertility

Older women are more likely to produce eggs with a thick zona pellucida, or outer shell. Women who have high levels of follicle-stimulating hormone experience the same problem (follicle stimulating hormone). In such situations, the egg will not hatch and will not attach to the womb. All of these reproductive problems may benefit from assisted hatching.

Additionally, research indicates that frozen or thawed embryos have a hard zona pellucida, making it difficult for them to hatch and implant. The outer shell will crack due to laser-assisted hatching, allowing the embryo to implant more easily.

It is essential to recognize that embryos usually implant in the womb during the IVF procedures and that hatching is a natural process. A modern approach might be needed because failure to hatch is a rare cause of infertility. Additionally, it’s important to talk over the pros and cons of receiving laser hatching treatment with your fertility doctor. You should also think about the extra cost associated with this procedure.

Laser Hatching increase the chances of successful implantation and pregnancy. There is a possibility of success using assisted hatching if pervious IVF treatmentswere unsuccessful. To make the best choice, talk to your fertility doctor.

As explained previously, the hatching process is mandatory for pregnancy. However, for whatever reason, laser hatching becomes the recommended course of treatment if the embryo fails to implant. This treatment offers an opportunity for couples who had unsuccessful IVF cycles to become pregnant. When carried out by a skilled fertility doctor or embryologist, laser-assisted hatching may be able to assist you in getting pregnant despite the issue of thick shell embryos. It can increase implantation rates, pregnancy rates, and birth rates. IVF failure cases and elderly couples have had great success when the laser hatching technique is used. Cryopreserved embryo pregnancy rates have also increased as a result.

This procedure provides a chance to get a success for couples who have had failed IVF cycles.

If performed by a skilled embryologist, it might help a woman who suffers with thick shell embryos in becoming pregnant. Additionally, this may help in increasing the rates of implantation, pregnancy, as well as birth.

In cases of failure IVF and in aged couples, using this technique has had remarkable success. From INR 10,000 to INR 20,000 is the cost of laser assisted hatching.
