Embryos with abnormal chromosomes (also called aneuploid embryos) normally result in a miscarriage or may lead to the birth of a child with genetic condition.
PGT-A is particularly important for female patients over age 35, as the risk of chromosomal abnormality increases with maternal age.
PGT-A (also known as PGS, Preimplantation Genetic Screening) is a genetic testing, performed on an in vitro fertilized embryo- before the embryo gets transferred, to screen the embryo’s genetic health, so that your physician could select the best embryo for implantation and increased the chance of a successful pregnancy.
Moreover, PGT-A can greatly reduce the chances of a patient having multiple pregnancies by providing information to select the optimal embryo for Single Embryo Transfer.
This test is recommended for people who:
- Advanced maternal age.
- Couples with infertility concerns.
- Couples with recurrent miscarriages.
- Couples with many failed IVF cycles.
- Couples with a family history of chromosomal abnormalities.
- Couples undergoing IVF treatment for other reasons.
PGT-A can also be done in conjunction with MIRA to increase the chance of implantation: Choose the best embryo transfer at the right time!
