Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is a method which is used at Medical Center ADONIS FAMILY to identify genetic defects in embryos created in a result of in vitro fertilization. Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is necessary for those couples who have genetic pathology in one or both parents. Screening is done at the embryo stage to determine if embryos carry a certain genetic disease.
The purpose of Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is to identify the best quality embryos for their transfer into the woman’s uterine cavity during IVF program, which is provided at Medical Center ADONIS FAMILY. Thereby, the chances of getting pregnant are increasing in those patients who have the genetic pathologies. The issue of using Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) in an ordinary IVF cycle without known genetic pathologies in one or two parents remains controversial.
Who are recommended to provide Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) by genetics and embryologists at ADONIS FAMILY:
- Holders of genetic mutations as well as sex chromosome abnormalities;
- Patients over 35;
- Couples with a history of multiple miscarriages (2 or more consecutive pregnancy losses up to 20 weeks);
- Couples with unsuccessful IVF attempts (3 or more unsuccessful IVF attempts to obtain high quality embryos);
- Couples with severe male infertility.
The procedure for Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) has its advantages:
- The procedure is done before embryo transfer into the woman´s uterine cavity, which prevents the necessity for amniocentesis during pregnancy.
- Couples, together with their leading doctor, will be able to decide which embryos to transfer based on their quality.
- The procedure can help reduce costs that may be connected with birth defects.
Stages of Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) at Medical Center ADONIS FAMILY:
- Step 1. Our specialists provide the initial stage of the standard process of in vitro fertilization.
- Step 2. On the 3-5 days of embryo development, our embryologists do a blastomere biopsy.
- Step 3. Cells are tested by our specialists to ensure that the embryo from which the cells were taken does not contain the gene that causes the genetic pathology observed in the couple.
- Step 4. According to the results of Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS), embryos of good quality are transferred to the woman´s uterus for implantation.
- Step 5. The rest of embryos of good quality are cryopreserved by our embryologists for the next using by patients.
- Step 6. Embryos, where genetic abnormalities have been detected, are disposed.
- Step 7. In two weeks after embryo transfer, a woman takes a blood test for hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), which determines the pregnancy occurred in a result of infertility treatment.
Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) at Medical Center ADONIS FAMILY is provided by leading embryology specialists using the newest equipment. The professional approach of our doctors and embryologists leads to the highest level of success - the birth of the awaited children.
