Why choose genetic testing?
Any couple may choose to undergo PGS, although it is particularly suited to those couples where the woman is aged 35 or older, who have suffered several miscarriages or failed IVF treatments, or who have a family history of chromosomal abnormalities. It is estimated that more than 50% of human eggs have chromosome problems and this is known to be a major cause of miscarriage.
PGD is specifically designed for those couples who have a family history of a serious genetic condition – particularly where it is known to be carried on both sides; for instance if you already have a child with the condition or have had to terminate previous pregnancies because of the condition.
No one takes the decision to undergo genetic screening lightly and we understand that it can be a very painful choice to make. If you do decide to go ahead with genetic screening as part of your IVF or ICSI treatment with us, we will try to make the whole process as smooth as possible, offering impartial advice and emotional support, alongside the practicalities of treatment and testing.
