Reducing Chances of Pregnancy Loss through Genetic Testing in Conjunction With IVF

Today’s Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) helps to increase the healthy birth rates of babies through genetic testing. This is because only the healthiest embryos are transferred for implantation during a fresh IVF cycle and/or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). Genetic testing helps to reduce the number of cycles required to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

PGD – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

PGD diagnoses genetic defects such as:

  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Tay Saches
  • Hemophilia
  • Sickle Cell Anemia

PGS – Preimplantation Genetic Screening

PGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus in conjunction with IVF. Specifically, PGS identifies the most suitable and healthiest embryo to transfer by detecting chromosomal deficiencies – euploidy – an extra or missing chromosome.

Candidates for Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS)

Because advanced maternal age (over 35) adversely affects the quality of a woman’s eggs – oocytes – resulting in chromosomal abnormalities, New Hope Fertility NYC recommends PGS in conjunction with IVF to patients over the age of 35.

Other Candidates for PGS

  • Women having a history of recurrent miscarriages (2 or more)
  • Women having failed IVF cycles
  • Gender Selection – Family Balancing

NGS – Next Generation Sequencing

NGS is a new method of PGS. NGS is the best genetic screening test for primary candidates considering IVF.  NGS is used for comprehensive chromosome testing of embryos created through IVF. NGS is on the horizon to replacing PGS because of the procedure’s lower cost and reduced errors.

NGS allows embryologists to screen for defects on the chromosomal level with higher accuracy and more detail than ever before. PGS results are comprehensive and a higher resolution than any other genetic testing method because it detects more translocations.

NGS may be run as a standalone test – or in conjunction with PGS – at a faster completion rate. NGS is also helpful to couples wanting to plan their family through gender selection.

Primary Benefits of NGS

  • Reduce the number of miscarriages
  • Reduce the number of IVF cycles
  • Reduce the risk of multiple pregnancy with a single embryo transfer
  • Increase pregnancy rates up to 30 percent
  • Increase live births
