The ability of an embryo to hatch, or escape, from the zona pellucida (ZP) is one of many critical events that must occur for successful reproduction.
Zona pellucida is a shell-like structure that covers the egg. During fertilization, it ensures that only one sperm cell enters the egg. It also protects the embryo during the first few days of development. For an embryo to successfully implant/get attached to the uterine lining and result in pregnancy, it must come out of this shell, in other words, it must hatch out of the zona pellucida. Some embryos seem to have a thick/harder shell that may decrease their ability to hatch and therefore reduce the likelihood that they will implant.
Assisted hatching is a technique in which, the zona pellucida is artificially breached or thinned to facilitate hatching. Laser assisted hatching is one out of several methods to help the fertilised egg to hatch and attach to the uterus.
INDICATIONS FOR ASSISTED HATCHING:
1. Age >37
2. Recurrent implantation failure
3. Elevated serum FSH levels
4. Frozen embryo transfer
5. Thick Zona pellucida
6. Poor embryo quality. PC: hamiltonthrone.com
Yesterday while i'm on my way home from therapy I met my bully again.
During the whole ride she tried everything to make me feel bad about myself. It was petty thing to do tho. But I already forgive these kind of people for raining on my parade and I already forgive myself for forgetting my umbrella. When you're surrounded with warm, genuine ppl who loves you this kind of ppl don't really matter.
I already realized that some people are so cruel and judgmental. I always keep in mind those people who choose to hurt others are the broken souls of the world who are deeply hurting themselves. Their hate has nothing to do with how they feel about me, it’s a reflection about how they feel about themselves. The world is filled with people who, no matter what I do, no matter what I try, will simply not like me. But the world is also filled with those who will love me fiercely. The ones who love me they are My People.
I don't waste my finite time and heart trying to convince the people who aren't my people that I have value. They will miss completely. They won't buy what I'm selling. I don't need to try to convince them to walk my path with me because I know I will waste my time and my emotional good health. I am not for them and they are not for me. I am not their cup of tea and they are not mine. I already found the people who I can share my path with those who recognize and appreciate my gifts. Those people who love me for who I am.
I am not everyone's cup of tea and that is OK.
I’ve been put on the planet for an important reason. I’ve gotten as far as I have by focusing on what I need to do. Those who talk behind your back, they're behind you for a reason. Those who trying to bring you down is already below you. Anyone who is threatened by my positive performance is indicating that I'm doing things right. Keep moving forward and don't look back.✨
