Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) consists of a biopsy on all the embryos of an IVF, in order to obtain a cell to determine if it is a carrier of chromosomal alterations. The goal is to transfer an embryo without abnormalities to increase the chances of pregnancy.
Once the diagnosis is made, the healthy embryos are transferred to the uterus.
In FIVMadrid, we recommend performing a PGD on the embryos of women with repeated miscarriages, over 40 years of age (age factor), when incurring in repeated implantation failures, and when there is a risk of some hereditary disease.
