If you are undergoing IVF, that does not mean you will be recommended LAH. Experts believe that LAH might bring successful pregnancy in certain types of couples. After analyzing all your medical records and infertility history, your fertility doctor can determine if LAH can help you.
Generally, in the following conditions, assisted hatching may improve the pregnancy rate.
• If you have experienced two or more failed IVF cycles.
• If you have increased FSH level
• The quality of your embryo is poor.
• When your age is 38 or older
Older women have a tendency to produce eggs with thick zona pellucida or outer shell. The same problem is seen in women with a high level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). In such cases, the egg will not hatch and fails to attach to the womb. Assisted hatching can be beneficial in all these infertility issues.
Also, studies show that frozen or thawed embryos have hard zona pellucida making it difficult to hatch and implant. Laser-assisted hatching will create a gap in the outer shell, making it easy for the embryo to implant.
It is essential to now that hatching is a natural process and in most IVF cases embryo implants in the womb. Failure to hatch is a rare cause of infertility hence might need a modern approach. Also, it is important to discuss with your fertility doctor about the pros and cons of undergoing LAH treatment in your case. Also, you need to consider the additional cost of this procedure.
