What is Embryo Genetic Testing?
Embryo Genetic Testing includes Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). Both the diagnosis and screening tests are options for couples at increased risk of passing a chromosome abnormality or specific genetic disorder on to their children. Couples choose PGD and PGS for many reasons, including repeat implantation failure, repeat miscarriage, an objection to termination of pregnancy, or loss of a child from the genetic disease.
Why choose the Monash IVF Group for PGD and PGS?
