Does euroCARE carry out Assisted Hatching?

Before an embryo can attach to the wall of the womb, it has to break free or ‘hatch’ from its outer layer which is called the zona pellucida.  Assisted hatching is when a hole is made or the outer layer is thinned helping the embryos to ‘hatch’ to increase the chances of pregnancy.  We do carry out Assisted Hatching at euroCARE IVF if it is required typically so in women 35 years or when the embryos have a thick zona pellucida.  Assisted hatching is also used when a patient has a history of failed IVF cycles.
