Assisted Hatching

CT Fertility offers Assisted Hatching (AH), a procedure which helps the embryo implant in the uterus.

Assisted hatching (AH) is a laboratory procedure that involves making a small hole in the outer (non-cellular) coating of the embryo, called the zona pellucida. This small hole is thought to assist poorer quality embryos in hatching out of the zona pellucida. This hatching process is necessary for implantation and the establishment of pregnancy. Click here to watch us hatch an embryo.

You will be given detailed consent forms concerning IVF / AH laboratory processes, and you must review and sign them prior to the beginning your medications.
