Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis is a procedure where eggs or embryos are tested for certain genetic disorders – both inherited and non-inherited – prior to being transferred in the uterus. It is most beneficial for couples with known chromosomal or genetic abnormalities who are at risk of having an affected child; couples without genetic disorders by testing age-related chromosomal abnormalities in women 35 years and older or women with recurrent IVF failure; or couples with a history of recurrent pregnancy loss with or without a genetic basis.
The ultimate goal of PGD analysis is the selection of only chromosomally “normal” embryos for transfer. For more information about PGD, call 401-453-7500.
