In today's world IVF (in vitro fertilization) has become a boon for all mothers who due to any kind of potential limitations cannot conceive. With the help of scientific technology, it is now possible to fertilize the ovum with a sperm outside the human body in a test tube.

When is assisted hatching required?

Now this fertilized egg or the embryo has to be implanted in the mother's womb or uterus so that embryo grows into a baby.

Now here comes the concept of assisted hatching. The embryo which is eight celled has a layer around it which we scientifically call Zona Pellucida. For implantation, this layer has to be very thin so that the embryo attaches itself to the endometrium or the inner layer of the uterus.

Normally what happens, for the first 5 to 7 days of development, the embryo is surrounded and protected by this outer shell the zona pellucida. In ordinary circumstances, when the embryo reaches the uterus, this zona partially dissolves and the embryo ‘hatches’ out, allowing it to implant in the uterus.

But in a number of pathological cases, the zona fails to dissolve which in turn does not allow the embryo to get implanted.

At the Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals, you will get this extraordinary scientific technology called the assisted hatching which ensures the attachment of the embryo to the inner layer of the uterus.

How is assisted hatching performed?

Assisted hatching is a micro implantation process performed under the microscope by our expert embryologists.

Using a very high-powered microscope, a small slot is made in the zona pellucida with a very fine needle. The most efficient team of embryologists at Mathrutva stabilize the embryo by holding pipette and a minute hole is created by a biological acid placed on the opposite side. This minute hole helps the embryo to "hatch out" of its layer and get itself implanted. Assisted hatching is carried out before the embryo transfer on those embryos that have been chosen for transfer.
