What is PGD/PGS?

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) are procedures used to test IVF embryos for genetic abnormalities, chromosomal disorders or familial diseases. A few cells are removed from the embryo and the genetic material within the cells is analysed. This supports the selection of the embryos that have the best chance for successful pregnancy. PGD and PGS is an option for couples who have an increased risk of passing on genetic disorders and/or who are carriers of conditions such as cystic fibrosis, Duchenne Muscular atrophy, Huntington Disease, hereditary cancer syndrome (BRCA1 & 2) and other specific genetic conditions including single gene disorders, sickle cell and sex-linked diseases like haemophilia. Couples who have familial history of genetic disorders are advised to see our Geneticist for counselling before determining whether to go for PGD/ PGS testing. PGD testing is specific to the family and requires DNA samples from the couple and also family members in some cases. PGT-A is Pre-implantation genetic testing for Aneuploidy and PGD is pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.

These Procedures are Advised:

  1. In women are over 40 years of age and plan to have IVF
  2. In women or in couples who have recurrent implantation failure
  3. In couples who have had recurrent miscarriages
  4. In couples who have a genetic disease
  5. Pre-implantation genetic testing means that we test the embryo prior to transfer to see if it is chromosomally normal.

IVF Process is performed in the same way and the embryos are cultured to day 5 until they become blastocysts. And then a few cells are taken from the outer covering of the embryo which is called trophectoderm and sent for biopsy and the embryo is frozen. Once the embryos are tested, we get the results back telling us which embryos are chromosomally normal and which are worthy of transfer. Based on this we transfer the embryos.

PGD / PGS FAQ's

Can you do PGD without IVF?

PGD is not possible without doing IVF first.

Is preimplantation genetic diagnosis safe?

Yes, Preimplantation Genetic Testing testing is safe. 

What is pre implantation genetic diagnosis?

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a laboratory procedure used in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) to reduce the risk of passing on inherited conditions.

Who is eligible for PGD?

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) can be offered when one or both genetic parents have, or are carriers of, a known genetic abnormality; testing is performed on embryos created through IVF to determine whether they are at risk of genetic disease.

Does genetic testing show autism?

Genetic testing looks for causes of ASD but cannot be used to diagnose ASD. Some people with ASD have syndromic ASD, meaning that they have other specific features in addition to having ASD, such as looking different from other people in the family or having birth defects.

What is PGD used for?

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a laboratory procedure used in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) to reduce the risk of passing on inherited conditions.

What are the risks of PGD?

Most of the risks involved in PGD treatment are similar to those for conventional IVF: Fertility drug reaction: mild reactions may involve hot flushes, feeling down or irritable, headaches and restlessness; symptoms usually disappear after a short time.

Should I do preimplantation genetic screening?

PGS may be recommended for someone with recurrent miscarriage, someone who is older or whose ovaries do not work as well as expected, or someone with multiple failed fertility treatments. Some couples also can choose to do PGS for personal reasons.

Is PGD safe?

PGD and PGS do not affect the embryo's viability, making both procedures a safe and recommended part of the IVF process.
