Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS)

Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) and Diagnosis (PGD) have revolutionized the world of infertility treatments and In-vitro Fertilization (IVF). It provides a far greater insights, choices and control to the infertility specialists and IVF practitioners which further enable them to improve their treatment approach.

IVF Challenges

One of the most common causes for recurrent pregnancy loss in both normal as well as IVF pregnancies is the presence of incorrect number of chromosomes. If there are extra or missing chromosomes, the embryo is abnormal and it may lead to a spontaneous abortion. Even if the pregnancy is complete, the child will be abnormal.

Thus screening of the embryos before implantation can help improve the chances of a successful pregnancy outcome and a healthy baby.

PGS – an essential aid for all IVF cases

PGS is a genetic test which involves screening of embryos before they are implanted in the patient during the IVF treatment. This screening helps differentiate the chromosomally normal embryos from abnormal ones. By planting the normal or healthy embryos, the chances of conception are significantly improved.
