After our heart break, we've decided we are ready and have started FET for this month. Does anyone one know if assisted hatching is covered? We did a funding cycle and I'm not sure if it's covered when doing FET.
Also, has anyone done assisstd hatching for FET and does it make a difference?

Thanks

No experience but so sorry about your ectopic :(  I am following as we are about to do a FET.  I know our best blast is already hatching but the others aren't.  So curious to see what people say.  We will be doing our FET in Sept / Oct.  Good luck and wishing you success!

Age 40, DH 44 in Oct.

TTC on and off since 2007 before our second IVF, in 2014, brought us our beautiful son and our first FET brought us our second son in 2017.  Our family is complete!

 

IVF #1 - April 2014 - BFN - no frosties

 

IVF #2 - July 2014 - BFP - 5B-AB and 4 frosties (5B-BB, 2x4B-BB and 3B-BB)

Apr. 13, 2015 - Daniel Erik was born at 5:05 am, weight 8 lbs, 13 oz, and 22" long.  He is perfect in every way.

 

FET #1 - September 2016 - BFP - 5B-BB and 3 frosties (2x4B-BB and 3B-BB)

June 18, 2017 - Matthew William was born at 2:46 am, weight 8 lbs, 11 oz and 21" long.  He is perfect in every way too!

Yes it should be covered under the funding. I was doing the funded cycle too . We were not given the option to choose it just depends on your embies. We were just told that if our embie has not hatched then they would do assisted hatching. In our case, our embie happened to be hatching on its own so they didn't have to do assisted hatching . Good luck!

Thank you. I have 2 5AAs frozen as well but my RE wants us to use the 4AAs instead. I'll trust that he knows what he's doing and do my best play my part. Congratulation on your bean!

We've done assisted hatching on all three of our transfers - our clinic recommends it for all FET.  The theory is that the freezing can make a harder shell than it would typically have, so they make a little hole to help it along.  It cost us an extra $300, but we're not on a funded cycle - and we figured we may as well throw everything possible at it.


Me: 32 33 Wife: 28 29

The problem - two girls can't make a baby without some help

But also - Fibroids, "polycystic like" ovaries, unpredictable ovulation, and a possible uterine septum 

11/14 - IUI #1 - BFN

12/14 - no cycle as clinic closed over holiday

1/15 - cancelled, no dominant follicles - looks like I have an ovulation problem

2/15 - IUI #2 - 50mg Clomid - BFN

3/15 - 100mg Clomid - cancelled, missed my ovulation

4/15 - IUI #3 - 100mg Clomid - BFN

5/15 - Will need to start injectables as not responding well to Clomid, decide to switch to IVF, last three vials of donor sperm shipped from Toronto

6/15 - Stimming for ER

7/15 - 20 eggs retrieved, 19 fertilized, 15 embryos at day 3, 8 frozen at day 5

8/15 - MRI scheduled - no septum! No surgery.  Just a whopper of a fibroid, 9.5cmx8.5cm

9/15/15 - FET #1 one day 5 hatching blast

9/28/15 - Beta of 9 - chemical pregnancy

10/27/15 - FET #2 one day 5 hatching (maybe?) blast

11/09/15 - Beta of 18 - not looking good for 13dp5dt

11/13/15 - Beta 3 - second chemical pregnancy

3/04/16 - FET #3 one perfect grade 20 hatching day 5 blast

3/14/16 - Beta 130

3/1616 - Beta 320

3/18/16 - Beta 646

4/05/16 - Ultrasound 7w2d heartbeat of 136

4/26/16 - Ultrasound 10w2d heartbeat of 178, EDD Nov. 21
