Find the cause of your infertility through Genetic Testing


Genetic testing is generally performed to determine whether there is a genetic defect causing infertility. It is estimated that genetics are a causal factor in up to 10 percent of couples who experience infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss, so it stands to reason that genetic testing has the potential to help many of those couples in their quest to have a family. Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is used to identify any genetic disorders in embryos created through IVF before implantation and pregnancy. Identifying the genetic cause of the infertility helps in talking correct decisions about the type of the infertility treatment.

Genetic screening is also available to the patients who are suspected to have genetic risks. The doctors also recommend genetic testing for the couple with ethnic backgrounds to undergo genetic testing. All these genetic testing is time consuming and are very expensive, but the result is very precise that shows that is the exact problem that is related to infertility in both women and men.
