    Default Hatched embryo... Greater chance of implantation?

    All good. Wazza is just brilliant. The best thing we ever did was go to see him. Best of luck and I hope you get you're sticky soon.

    I've had a BFP from a very early blastocyst described as 'unremarkable' by my FS and also a BFP from a fully hatched embryo. But yeah, I'd say hatching is a very good sign.

    Hello, can I ask what assisted hatching is? Was it to test the embryo on day 3?

    Hatching or hatched is a good sign as the embryo has thawed well and kept on growing, it's looking for somewhere to implant.

    At the end of the day, the conditions have to be right, the genetics have to be good. I've transferred 1 fresh and 4 frozen top grade hatching/hatched blastocysts yet only 1 made it to my now 8 month old DS.

    Best of luck to you, you're in with a good chance.

    Assisted hatching and PGD are different. AH is where they help make a hole in the outer shell of the embryo so it can 'hatch' before attaching to the lining. I think they do this using a laser or something. PDG is where they take a few cells of the embryo and test them for their genetics. If the cells are chromosomally not good then they won't do a transfer with them as they wont form a pregnancy anyway

    Assisted hatching is done in association with PGD testing. They put a small whole in the outer shell on day 3 so that hopefully it's partially hatching on day 5 or 6 so they can remove some of the hatched cells for biopsy. Sometimes in older ladies assisted hatching is done even when not doing PGD because older eggs tend to have a harder outer shell and take longer / are more difficult to hatch.
