Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Advanced Maternal Age

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is performed on embryos from in vitro fertilizations, to select only viable embryos that are more likely to be implanted and result in a healthy baby, with no genetic diseases. In couples with advanced maternal age, PGS makes sense, as the mother's age can ha ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Frequency of Down Syndrome Per Maternal Age

Preimplantation genetic screening is a cutting edge diagnosis used on embryos to ensure that they are not carriers of genes that may contain diseases such as the Down syndrome or Huntington's. The PGS is used during the IVF, in couples that are likely to carry genetic diseases or in advanced matern ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Sex Selection

Pre-pregnancy genetic testing in the form of PGS, or preimplantation genetic screening, is being increasingly recommended for IVF couples. The advent of PGS has led to the controversies regarding sex selection or gender selection. Sex selection through PGS is offered by a very limited number of IVF ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Male Factor Infertility

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) has been carried out for several years now to select embryos that are genetically normal for implantation into the mother's womb. Preimplantation Genetic Screening Parents who wish to use PGS must agree to in vitro fertilization of their gametes to produce th ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Matching

Preimplantation genetic testing in the form of PGS (preimplantation genetic screening) and PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) is being increasingly adopted by IVF clinics. This genetic testing is aimed at identifying genetic disorders that might be present within the IVF embryos created f ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Recurrent Pregnancy Loss

Women suffering from recurrent pregnancy loss are prime candidates for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). RPL, or Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, is established when a woman has suffered two or more pregnancy losses within 20 weeks of the gestation period (period of embryonic development). Usually, ...Continue Reading

Preimplantation Genetic Screening: Recurrent IVF Failure

Using PGD testing methods, preimplantation genetic screening or PGS helps IVF couples with a history of repeated IVF failures by identifying reasons for the repeated loss of pregnancy. Recurrent IVF failure Recurrent IVF failure is also referred to as RIF. This condition is established when the IVF ...Continue Reading

Primary Candidates for Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is a technique that combines reproductive technology with advances in molecular genetics. Physicians can identify the presence of genetic abnormalities in an embryo prior to the establishment of pregnancy. However, it is essential that the parents use in vitro fert ...Continue Reading

Risks of Assisted Hatching

Assisted Hatching is a procedure that may be used to assist in vitro fertilization procedures. It involves helping the embryo hatch out of the protective layers and making it attach itself safely to the uterus. This procedure is typically recommended for women under the age of 35 or for couples tha ...Continue Reading

Risks of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

The medical procedure known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis is generally considered by many doctors to be a relatively safe way to work with the genetics of an embryo to help patients avoid some kinds of genetic disorders in a fetus.
