Elevate Fertility Care with Genetic Testing—precise insights for a tailored approach, optimizing your chances on the journey to parenthood.

The journey towards parenthood often involves overcoming various challenges and for many, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) becomes a beacon of hope in fertility care. In recent years, advancements in fertility care, especially assisted reproductive technologies, have introduced innovative tools to enhance the success of IVF. One such breakthrough is Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing (PGT), a pioneering technique in fertility care that not only aids in the selection of healthy embryos but also significantly elevates the chances of a successful pregnancy.

 What is Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing (PGT)?

PGT is a cutting-edge genetic screening tool used during the early stages of embryo development in the IVF process. This fertility care technique allows fertility specialists to assess the genetic makeup of embryos before implantation, providing valuable insights into their chromosomal health. PGT serves a dual purpose – identifying embryos with genetic abnormalities and enabling the selection of those with the highest likelihood of a successful pregnancy.

Applications of PGT in IVF

  1. PGT-A (Aneuploidy Screening) – PGT-A focuses on screening embryos for aneuploidy, which refers to an abnormal number of chromosomes. Aneuploid embryos are a common cause of implantation failure and miscarriages. By identifying and excluding these embryos, PGT-A enhances the chances of selecting chromosomally normal embryos for transfer during fertility care.
  2. PGT-M (Monogenic Disorders) – PGT-M is designed for individuals or couples carrying known genetic mutations that could lead to serious genetic disorders. This fertility care technique enables the identification of embryos free from specific genetic abnormalities, reducing the risk of passing on inheritable disorders to the next generation.
  3. PGT-SR (Structural Rearrangements) – PGT-SR is employed when one or both partners have structural chromosomal rearrangements. This fertility care technique aids in selecting embryos without the structural abnormalities, minimising the risk of miscarriages or developmental issues.

Boosting IVF Success Rates with PGT

The integration of PGT into the IVF process has proven instrumental in elevating success rates and improving overall outcomes in fertility care. The key contributions of PGT to the success of IVF include –

  1. Increased Implantation Rates – By selecting embryos with the correct chromosomal composition, PGT enhances the likelihood of successful implantation, reducing the chances of miscarriage.
  2. Reduced Pregnancy Loss – PGT minimises the risk of transferring embryos with chromosomal abnormalities, thereby decreasing the occurrence of pregnancy loss and increasing the chances of a healthy pregnancy.
  3. Improved Live Birth Rates – The precision of PGT in selecting genetically normal embryos contributes to higher live birth rates, offering a more positive outcome for couples undergoing IVF.
  4. Enhanced Efficiency – PGT streamlines the embryo selection process, allowing fertility specialists to identify and transfer the most viable embryos, thereby optimising the efficiency of each IVF cycle.
