According to things I've read, it can be done either physically or chemically.
 
I read about cutting the slit on an IVF website.

Sorry dollface
 
, I wasn't questioning the "slit" you mentioned. I'm sure there may be a clinic that does it physically. You wrote about putting the sperm in. With a fresh transfer, the sperm has been in for 3 or 5 days before they do AH. Since JB had her embryos frozen, there was no reason to do it before. Now it's time to get those little guys to come out.


But more importantly, I just figured out I can write in PURPLE !!!

AH is pretty cheap at my clinic ($300 I think?) and I would definitely do it if I was putting back 3 day embies regardless of whether or not my zona's were thick, my age, etc.. I'd pay the $ for the peace of mind that the little buggers could escape ok.

I have only done blast transfers and they will not do AH hatching on blasts because the zona is too thin at that stage.

Good luck!!

Well you guys are just a wealth of information! I am wondering why in the heck they have not offered this to me before after a couple of failed cycles for no2. I made a mate at the clinic with an embrologist - after my 5th cycle - even though it was a failure i bought her choclates and flowers cause she was so nice and she said please call if ever you need me. I called her for a post mortem after failed cycle 5. I have a day off work on Tuesday so i am going to call and discuss this with her. From what you have described here this is definitely a goer even with a FET so i think i might just request this - as what really do i have to loose any more. Thanks for the info.
JB

Last summer I did a FET with 4 truly crappy embryos (alot of fragmentation) but one stuck (for 10 weeks - trisomy). They didn't think anything was going to implant. Maybe the embryo implanted because of the assisted hatching. It now appears that Jaime (marriahlyn) is pg. She just did assisted hatching with her FET. My clinic does assisted hatching with everyone regardless of their age. As Maddy stated, the cost is nominal especially compared to the prices of everything else involved.

My new thing is now adding in embryo glue.
