Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

Shree Hospital offers Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD). This is genetic testing on embryos for chromosomal or genetic disorders thus allowing patients at risk for these disorders to have their embryos tested before transfer during am in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.

PGD requires embryo biopsy and genetic analysis. Only the embryos that have the correct number of number of chromosomes and are free from abnormalities are considered for transfer in the IVF cycle. The genetic material of the embryo is not altered or harmed in any way during PGD Testing. Who should consider PGD?

Shree Hospital does not recommend PGD for all its patients. Those who may be considered are:

Women with recurrent miscarriage

Chromosomal abnormality in a previous pregnancy

Multiple IVF failures

Patients who are carriers of a specific genetic condition (such as cystic fibrosis)

Women over the age of 35
