Assisted Hatching (AH) at Southern California Reproductive Center (SCRC)
What is Assisted Hatching & is it Helpful?
One of the advanced ART (assisted reproductive technology) procedures employed by today’s top fertility specialists, such as those at Southern California Reproductive Center (SCRC), assisted hatching gives embryos a “helping hand” in the hatching process - breaking through the protective zona pellucida layer that envelops them.
Significantly increases an embryo’s chances of implantation in the uterus

How do I know if assisted hatching is right for me?
Several factors contribute to our fertility specialists recommending assisted hatching. Some of these factors include:
Age -typically women over 37 have drastically increased rates of infertility. Women above or close to this age may require AH in order to achieve a successful pregnancy.
Repeated IVF failures - if it’s not working for you, then a different approach is needed. AH is often a successful alternative.
Egg health and quantity - a high number of eggs is pivotal to fertilization and implantation. If you know your egg count is down, assisted hatching is the procedure recommended to make remaining eggs count.
FSH - when the day 3 follicle stimulating hormone level is elevated, conceiving may prove difficult.
While assisted hatching is highly effective, our team of fertility specialists will decide if it is appropriate for you. That starts with getting an accurate diagnosis of your particular infertility situation.
