There are several issues which are responsible for infertility in women. Science has devised several tools and techniques to solve the infertility problems. Assisted hatching technique is also one of the important techniques which enable fertility in women.
What Is Assisted Hatching Technique?
Assisted hatching technique facilitates the implantation of embryo into the uterine wall of a woman. It is done by creating a gap in the shell of the embryo. This small gap in the shell helps the embryo hatch out of zona pellucida (outer shell). If the thickness of the shell increases, it decreases the ability to implant into the uterine wall. The increase in the thickness of shell depends upon many unknown factors, but age is one of the most important reasons
