Enabling your fertility
specialist to choose a
genetically healthy embryo.
Normal embryos carry 23 pairs of chromosomes. An imbalance in chromosome numbers i.e. the presence of extra or missing chromosomes has been implicated to be among the most common causes of implantation failure or miscarriages. Embryos carrying abnormal chromosome numbers occur frequently in infertile couples. Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is a genetic test performed on embryos to determine if the embryo is carrying normal number of chromosomes. The chromosomally abnormal embryos are screened can select genetically healthy embryos can be transferred. This increases the chances of attaining a healthy pregnancy and reduces risk of miscarriages.
Patients undergoing the IVF process can opt for PGS. In fact, chromosome screening is an add-on, as about 50% of IVF derived embryos are known to carry chromosome abnormalities.
Studies suggest that women with advanced age and repeated implantation failure are at a higher risk of producing chromosomally abnormal embryos.
PGS is also recommended for patients diagnosed with male factor infertility, specifically when sperm samples are reported to carry abnormal chromosome numbers
PGS is recommended for Idiopathic infertility (cases where doctors are unable to conclude any apparent reason for infertility), several miscarriages or failed IVF attempts.
