We have seen a lot of development in science in the past few years. It helps us determine a lot about the new life coming into earth. This offers the parents an opportunity to learn more about their future children. This increases the chances of better health and the future of the child. Before we move ahead, one must know about IVF.

IVF also known as In-Vitro Fertilization

IVF is a process that assists in reproduction. It is very helpful for people facing fertility problems. The introduction of egg and sperm is done outside the uterus. After an embryo gets produced, our expert doctors proceed further.

How are IVF and PGD related?

This is a common question that arises in the minds of people. First of all, although the terms are related, they are not the same. PGD is performed before transferring the embryo at the time of IVF.

What is PGD?

Let's know about PGD gender selectionIt is a technique that helps provide information about the gene of the cells present in an embryo. Usually, the embryo is frozen for a certain period and then implanted. Approximately 2000 inherited genetic disorders can be identified via this process. It has an accuracy of 98% in identifying affected and unaffected embryos.

Who Gets the Most Benefits from PGD?

Couples with a family history of deadly and serious diseases benefit the most. People with such a history tend to worry about whether their offspring gets the same disease, for example, Huntington's Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, Sickle Cell Anaemia, or a family history of sex-linked disorders. In some cases, parents also use this procedure to find a match of stem cells for other siblings who need bone marrow transplants.

Its gender detecting ability can help to have a family balance too. Following the process of PGD analysis means only embryos that pass the test of being normal are selected. Then they transfer it to the uterus on the 4th or 5th day of egg retrieval. 

What Does the PGD Procedure Involve?

On couples who opt for PGD, we perform all these tests on them:

  1. Injecting sperm and eggs for fertilization.
  2. From the produced embryos, one or sometimes two blastomeres are removed.
  3. Then we look for genetic abnormalities in them.
  4. The procedure of Blastomere biopsy is done by choosing 6-8 cell embryos.
  5. Then we test them for any chromosomal abnormality.

After all these steps are done, the chosen embryos for further development are kept in culture media. Once the results of the tests come, we choose the embryos of your desired gender that are free from genetic diseases and place them in the uterus.
