Understanding Assisted Laser Hatching (ALH)

Assisted Laser Hatching is a sophisticated technique used in the field of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to enhance the implantation of embryos into the uterine wall. This procedure involves using a highly precise laser to create a small opening in the outer shell of the embryo (zona pellucida). This process facilitates the embryo's ability to hatch out of its shell, a crucial step for successful implantation and pregnancy.

Assisted Laser Hatching is particularly beneficial for patients with a history of failed IVF cycles, older women, or those with thicker zona pellucida.

FAQs and Answers

ALH is a precise laboratory technique where a small opening is made in the outer shell of the IVF embryo (the zona pellucida) using a laser. This process is intended to assist the embryo in breaking free from its shell, potentially increasing the chances of implantation in the uterine lining.

ALH is an additional step in the IVF process, not a standalone treatment. It specifically aims to enhance embryo implantation rates by facilitating the hatching process, which is crucial for successful embryo attachment to the uterus.

ALH is often recommended for couples with previous IVF failures, women of advanced maternal age, embryos with a thicker zona pellucida, or in cases of frozen embryo transfers where the zona may have hardened.

Success rates can vary depending on individual circumstances, including age, fertility issues, and embryo quality. Gunasheela's experienced team uses ALH to improve outcomes for patients with specific challenges that may impact embryo implantation.

Yes, when performed by skilled embryologists, ALH is safe. The laser is precisely controlled to make a small opening without damaging the embryo itself. Gunasheela employs state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure safety and efficacy.

A highly focused infrared laser is used to delicately remove a small portion of the zona pellucida. This method is quick and controlled, minimizing exposure to the embryo and potential thermal damage.

ALH is not necessarily used for all embryos. The decision to use ALH is based on specific criteria, such as embryo quality and previous IVF outcomes. Our specialists assess each case to determine if ALH could be beneficial.

ALH is considered a low-risk procedure. The primary risk is potential damage to the embryo if not performed correctly, which is why it's essential to choose a reputable center like Gunasheela with experienced embryologists.

ALH is performed just before the embryo transfer stage and does not significantly alter the overall IVF timeline. It is a precise and quick procedure integrated into the IVF process.

The cost of incorporating ALH into your IVF treatment depends on various factors, including the overall treatment plan. Gunasheela provides detailed financial counseling to help patients understand their options and costs.

Your fertility specialist at Gunasheela will discuss your medical history, previous IVF attempts, and any factors that might impact embryo implantation to recommend the best treatment approach, including whether ALH could improve your chances of success.

Gunasheela offers comprehensive support services, including counseling, nutritional advice, and stress management resources, to support patients emotionally and physically throughout their IVF journey, including treatments involving ALH.
