What You Need to Know About Pre-Implantation Diagnostic Testing & Genetics , Dover, New Jersey

Many couples want nothing more than a happy, healthy family. If you need assistance making your dream come true, in vitro fertilization (IVF) or other fertility treatments can provide a solution. In addition to helping you get pregnant, a fertility doctor can also offer services such as pre-implantation diagnostic testing, also known as pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT). 

What is Pre-Implantation Diagnostic Testing?

pre-implantation diagnostic testingPGT is a technique used by doctors to test each embryo before transferring it to a woman’s uterus in the IVF process. It can check for issues such as monogenic (single-gene) disorders, structural rearrangements, and aneuploidy. These issues have to do with the health of the fetus and mother, as well as the chances of a successful pregnancy or, conversely, a miscarriage. Testing allows partners to make informed decisions about their health and that of their potential future child.

Why is It Useful?

Your doctor may recommend PGT if you or your partner have a family history of genetic disorders or if you’re carrying a chromosomal abnormality which may affect the pregnancy or the baby’s health. Older women, and those with a history of miscarriage or other risk factors, are also candidates for PGT. Keep in mind that this test doesn’t replace prenatal testing, such as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. 

 

Pre-implantation diagnostic testing is a valuable tool for families and doctors, as it helps determine the best course of action to ensure a healthy pregnancy and child.
