Assisted Hatching?

Postby riogirl71 » Mon Mar 30, 2009 11:30 pm

I would love to go for #2 and I was wondering how assisted hatching improves the odds. I transfered 4 perfect embies and got one singleton, I don't think I can be this aggressive next time so I am looking at assisted hatching to lower my chance of multiples while transferring less embies. If you could share your success story with AH that would be wonderful!

Hi Rio,

I did have assisted hatching, but my clinic does assisted hatching on everyone over 38 and I was 40 when I got pregnant w/ Katie. They said the egg is thicker as you get older, so the assisted hatching gives you a fighting chance.

Hey Rio -- I had AH, transfered 3 and got my little Evie! :D

I think they do it on most people at CCRM. We used ICSI, too.

On our successful cycle, we transferred three embryos with assisted hatching and got one healthy baby and an early disappearing twin. My wife was 37.

Rio,

We transferred four embryos, 3 @ 8 cell and 1 @ 7 cell. We haven't decided whether we will go for another or not. We have one embryo that made it to blastocyst and was frozen, so we will probably try that. I don't think we will do another fresh cycle. I can't imagine going through all of that at like age 42 or 43 w/ a toddler. I don't know, I could change my mind.
