When a woman realizes she is pregnant, many questions arise. These questions are usually related to: fetal development, medical supervision and fetal ultrasounds, symptoms and/or nuisances, her emotional status during the whole process, etc.
It is a common fertility alteration that affects couples willing to conceive again and whose attempts to do so have not been successful.
In this type of infertility there is an incompatibility between each partner caused by an allergy to semen in the female or her immune system attacking the sperm of her counterpart.
Assisted hatching is indicated in some particular cases. For instance, in cases of embryos with a thickened zona pellucida or with an abnormal colour of the zona pellucida.
Some assisted reproductive techniques, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or ICSI, perform egg fertilisation outside the woman’s body. For this reason, embryo culture is necessary up to the day in which the embryo transfer is performed.
The third step of the in vitro fertilisation (IVF) process is known as “egg insemination” and consists of culturing together the egg and the sperm in a laboratory dish.
