Genetic Testing

Genetic Testing is performed on embryos and designed to detect specific genes that could result in a disease or chromosomal abnormalities that could prevent a pregnancy from progressing.

We at Eve Fertility offer Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) testing.

PGD is recommended where there is an identified genetic condition present in one or both of the parents, or if a couple have previously had an affected child. It is possible to test embryos produced in IVF for a specific condition, and only those that are normal are replaced.

PGS is a less specific test, where embryos are checked for chromosomal abnormalities (such as Avoid Down Syndrome and Sick-cell Anemia). PGS may be performed in older women, who have an increased risk of Genetic abnormality, or in cases where recurrent miscarriage have occurred previously.
