Today’s couples undergoing IVF treatment have the benefit of choosing the sex of their baby through PGS/NGS technology in order to plan their future family. Look: Gender selection is no longer being stigmatized as a social engineering tool used to make designer babies. There is a trending increase in demand for gender selection because our innovative IVF and genetic testing technology is more than 99% accurate. The best part? Gender identification and selection can help you to choose the sex of your baby for family balancing purposes.
Gender selection is a beneficial by-product of genetic testing. The good news: Through genetic testing, the sex of each embryo is identifiable. PGS and NGS technology works to identify embryos with chromosomal abnormalities while they culture in vitro (in the lab). Why is this important? PGS/NGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus. Chromosomal abnormalities make an embryo too week to thrive into a fetus if it manages to implant into a woman’s uterine lining.
The chromosomes of a sperm determine an embryo’s gender.
We recommend universal blastocyst embryo screening for our patients because the procedure can help increase the chances of a pregnancy by 30 percent. Our fertility specialists recommend PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF for:
State-of-the-art embryo biopsy techniques and genetics technologies have proven to increase IVF pregnancy rates. Through the medical marvel of PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities can be detected in embryos.
As a woman advances in age, the chance for chromosomal abnormalities in embryos increases. Low quality embryos result in:
PGS/NGS takes place in conjunction with IVF in a controlled laboratory setting. Three days after fertilization of the patient’s eggs in vitro, cells are removed from each of the embryos developing.
The benefits of PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF include:
Our Mini-IVF™ can increase your chances of pregnancy without the need for large dosages of costly fertility medications used to produce an excessive number of eggs. Here’s the deal: The goal with a Mini-IVF™ protocol is to produce between 3 and 5 quality eggs per fresh cycle. The best part: Pregnancy success rates for Mini-IVF™ are comparable to Conventional IVF.
