Laser Hatching is an advanced procedure which is recommended in case of advanced maternal age, poor quality or slow developing embryos and in case of two or more failed IVF cycles. The laser hatching is done in a laboratory where an embryo is grown. The objective is to let the embryo attach to the wall of uterus successfully. For it to happen, thinning of the outer layer is done or a hole is made which leads the embryo to hatch properly.
Embryos are developed for various procedures like IVF, ICSI or Laser Hatching for this they need to be preserved in high facility labs which offer cryopreservation. At BLK, the facility of cryopreservation is available at its hi-tech laboratories. Here, cooling is done using specialized freezing equipment and embryos are stored in liquid nitrogen until they are ready for any process.
When should one opt for embryo freezing?
The goal of this process is to have frozen embryos that can be thawed and transferred to a woman’s uterus for future use, without having to stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. One may consider it if:
- You want to use embryos in future IVF and ICSI cycles.
- You are undergoing a medical treatment that could potentially affect your fertility.
- Your health is at risk and wants to freeze embryos with your partner.
- You want to freeze embryos before undergoing sex change operation.
The success rate of embryo freezing
Embryo freezing or embryo preservation is becoming very common these days with the availability of advanced laboratories and highly advanced equipment to conduct the process.
