Often, an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure can produce several embryos during the fertilisation process. Some couples opt to cryopreserve the embryos that are not transferred to the uterus during a given cycle, in the hope that they can use them later. This preservation process entails a sequence of freezing and thawing, the effects of which could adversely affect the natural process of blastocyst hatching. Laser assisted hatching (LAH) is a laboratory procedure that loosens a blastocyst within its outer shell, allowing it to implant successfully once it is deposited onto the uterine lining.
What Is Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)?
Why Choose Laser Assisted Hatching?
Laser assisted hatching (LAH) enables a blastocyst to thaw quickly, yet efficiently, without compromising on its integrity.
LAH can produce better quality blastocysts than traditional thawing methods. On Cloudnine, we strive to optimise your odds of conception in every in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycle, and we recommend assisted hatching as a tool to stimulate implantation.
Reap Benefits of Cryopreservation of Embryos
Cryopreservation is an ultra-modern technique that can preserve your embryos for up to a decade. However, the success of the process hinges on how well the embryos are frozen and thawed. It is possible that the shell housing the embryo may be impaired if it is not handled correctly. Assisted hatching can micro-manipulate an embryo, leaving you to make the most of cryopreservation.
Is Laser Assisted Hatching Right for Me?
Laser assisted hatching (LAH) can augment implantation and bring you closer to pregnancy if you have previously had three or more unfavourable in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles. Alternatively, if your doctor finds that the outer walls of your embryos seem to be thicker than usual, a LAH routine may be recommended for you.
What Are the Steps of Laser Assisted Hatching?
Laser assisted hatching (LAH) is a short two-step process, following the retrieval of cryopreserved embryos.
What Are the Risks of Laser Assisted Hatching?
There are two main risks associated with laser assisted hatching (LAH).
If the laser hatching process is performed poorly, an embryo could be blemished or permanently destroyed. The fertility experts on Cloudnine are seasoned specialists, armed with years of experience in LAH. Together, they have established some of the best assisted hatching rates in the country.
Increased Likelihood of Twins
There is a school of thought that suggests that assisted hatching can promote monozygotic twinning, although this theory is unattested.
