'PGS' - Pre-implantation Genetic Screening

PGS checks the number of  chromosomes in each blastocyst and can be useful for:

  • women 36 and older with good ovarian reserve,  
  • people who have had recurrent miscarriage,
  • people not pregnant despite the transfer of several embryos – PGS may uncover a higher than expected
    chromosome abnormality rate
  • patients who are willing to go through more than one egg retrieval cycle to obtain a normal embryo
