Assisted Hatching is a minimally invasive procedure that creates a tiny opening in the embryo's outer shell. This can be beneficial for embryos with a thickened zona pellucida (the shell) which can make natural hatching difficult.

The IVF Procedure

After the controlled application of ovarian hyperstimulation, eggs are taken from a woman’s ovary with the aid of ultrasound while the patient is under IV sedation. Anywhere from one to more than 30 eggs may be retrieved depending on the responsiveness of the ovaries to the gonadotropins’ stimulation.

 A semen sample of the sperm to be used in the procedure is also collected from the male donor. The semen then undergoes a series of cell separation treatments in order to generate a clean, healthy sperm sample. Once the sperm and eggs have been prepared, they are mixed and incubated for approximately three days to facilitate proper fertilization. When the resulting embryos have developed sufficiently, they are transferred to the patient’s uterus. The transfer process is very simple, and is similar to a pelvic exam. After the transfer procedure, the patient must carefully follow the instructions of the fertility specialist. The patient may be instructed to take several days of bed rest. Ten to 12 days after the transfer, a pregnancy test is performed to confirm whether or not the treatment was successful.

If you have questions about any of the stages of IVF, our specialists in Chicago and Northwest Indiana will gladly provide as many answers as possible. Contact a Midwest Fertility Center near you to speak with a staff member.

The Success of IVF with Assisted Hatching

 The success of IVF depends upon a number of factors, such as the age of the patient, the quality of sperm and eggs, the health of the woman’s uterus, and the duration of infertility. Successful pregnancy following IVF can be determined through blood tests performed approximately 13 days following the procedure or by ultrasound after 30 to 40 days. Please contact our office for specific details on IVF success rates.
