Dr. Zhang’s Pick of the Month: Who can benefit from PGS?

Pick of the MonthAccording to research, the miscarriage rate increases as a woman gets older. Women who are undergoing IVF treatment can benefit from Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS). PGS evaluates an embryo to determine if it has the correct number of chromosomes.  Having too many or too few chromosomes is evidence of a genetic defect.  This test does not look for specific diseases, rather it aims to identify embryos that have an abnormal number of chromosomes.  As a woman ages, the chance of her having embryos with an abnormal number of chromosomes rises.

Dr. Zhang’s October Pick of the Month

Hello everyone. I’m hoping to start making this blog a little bit more interactive and put some things out here for comments and debate. I’m encouraging everyone who stops by to leave a comment, question, or any other kind of feedback. I would love to hear from you!
