    Default Assited Hatching

    Hi Ladies,

    I am currently going through an FET cycle and had my transfer on Thursday of 1 Day5 Grade 1 embryo. On the morning of the transfer I enquired about AH and they said they could if I wanted, so we decided to go wth it. Anyway just before the transfer the embryologist mentioned that the zona had actually been thicker than the average and said it was already hatching when they transferred it.

    Do any of you know whether a hatching embryo increases chances of pregnancy? On my last fresh cycle I got a BFP. My numbers were quite low initially and the nurse suggested it was possibly because f late implantation. I am now wondering if thickened zonas can result in delayed hatching and therefore later implantation? Any thoughts?

    Thank you! x

    I've done three full stim cycles and 1 FET. The third stim and the FET cycles were both of AH embryos, and I fell pregnant with both (the FET embryo ended in miscarriage). So for me, I had a 100% success rate when the embryos had AH. But they were better quality embryos than the first two stim cycles, so I can't be sure if it was the AH that got me pregnant or the embryo quality.

    Thats what I figured - you're already spending thousands of dollars, whats an extra few hundred that might make the difference.

    Hi guys,

    I've been looking into assisted hatching too. I am from melbourne, at Monash IVF. When I inquired about it for my upcoming FET, my fertility specialist said they don't do AH and that it is an "old technology". does anyone know if anywhere else in melbourne does it? or anyone from monash got to do AH?

    Thanks

    I have had about 6 hatching embys transferred that happened to be hatching on the day of transfer. All bfn. I have no idea if this BFP was hatching or not as I just didn't care anymore I didn't ask. I'm with Monash Melbourne an AH is not part of protocol

    Yes that was my understanding too. But I really want to give this FET our best shot and do AH when I have nothing to loose, as the past FETs were not hatching. I wonder if anyone from monash got to do AH after speaking with their FS and embryologist. I don't know what the big deal is, as they do AH on the embryos with they do PDG on them anyways.
