Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a method which allows to eliminate the risk of passing on genetic disorders to a child before the woman gets pregnant. By examining the embryo cells, physicians are able to determine whether it has any DNA defects. For some patients it is the only possibility for having healthy offspring.
Thanks to preimplantation genetic screening within in vitro program couples, who are concerned with their children’s health, can gain peace of mind. In the course of in vitro fertilization procedure, embryos are tested for genetic disorders and only those without any defects are transferred into the uterus. The performance of PGS diagnosis provides many couples with the chance of having a healthy offspring.
