Pre – implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) & Sex Selection Boys or Girls
• Genetic testing or diagnosis on pre-implantation embryos may be indicated for patients who are at risk for genetic disorders such as Thalassemia and for patients with infertility related to chromosomal abnormalities such as recurrent pregnancy loss or repeated unsuccessful IVF or for gender (sex) selection (to choose boys or girls).
• Pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure used in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) to select embryos free of chromosomal abnormalities and specific genetic disorders before transfer to the uterus. PGT or PGD improves the likelihood of a successful pregnancy and birth for two distinctly different groups of patients; couples with infertility related to recurrent miscarriage or unsuccessful IVF cycles and couples who are at risk for passing on an inherited genetic disease to their offspring.
• Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis may be recommended by your physician when there is a possibility, indicated by your medical history or advanced maternal age, which could affect your embryos by a genetic disease. PGD can only be performed during an IVF cycle where eggs and sperm, united in the laboratory, then develop into embryos on the 3rd day and after the testing results on day 4 or day 5, only the normal embryos would be selected for embryo transfer, reducing the possibility of miscarriage or birth defects.
