We have been recommended to try assisted hatching this time around because of my age (39) and lack of success in previous cycles. Has anyone tried it & did it help?

We did it for my first IVF and it didn't work but I likely had poor quality embryo's due to my FSH. For my Donor FET they did assisted hatching and it worked the first cycle.

I had assisted hatching done with my first IVF cycle (so I can't compare it to a cycle without ah) and it worked! I figured, let's pull out all the guns because I wanted to have the absolute best chance to get pregnant (e.g. we also did ICSI even though DH has great sperm, and we transferred 3 embryos!).

BabyDustme - Wow, FOUR embryos!! Good luck

I don't know yet how many ended up sticking. My nurse thinks one (based on my first beta) and I've had a feeling it was twins the whole time...but now I'm kind of thinking one also. I'll find out a week from Monday how many are in there.

JillK - let us know what you end up deciding!
