What is PGT-A?

PGT-A is a genetic test that evaluates embryos created during your IVF cycle for extra or missing chromosomes, also known as aneuploidy. Embryos with aneuploidy are less likely to result in a successful pregnancy because they have an increased chance of resulting in miscarriage or a baby born with a genetic disorder, such as Down syndrome. By determining the number of chromosomes, PGT-A allows for the selection and transfer of embryos with the correct number of chromosomes, known as euploid embryos, which are most likely to result in a successful pregnancy and healthy outcome.

Is PGT-A Right for Me?

PGT-A is useful for all patients undergoing IVF treatment, especially if you are:

  • A couple with a history of multiple miscarriages.
  • A woman over 35 years of age.
  • A couple with a history of IVF failure.
  • A male partner with severe infertility.
  • A couple with a history of a previous pregnancy or an offspring with chromosomal abnormalities.
  • A couple who prefers gender selection.

PGT-M

What is PGT-M?

If you know that you are at risk of having a child with a monogenic or single gene genetic disorder, typically from either having a personal or family history of that condition or having positive carrier screening results, PGT-M can help.

Is PGT-M Right for Me?

You may wish to consider PGT-M if:

  • You are a carrier of an X-linked condition such as Fragile X
  • You and your reproductive partner are carriers of an autosomal recessive condition such as Cystic Fibrosis
  • You or your reproductive partner have a cancer-cause gene mutation such as a BRCA mutation
  • You or your reproductive partner have an autosomal dominant condition such as Huntington’s Disease
  • You have had a previous pregnancy or child with a single gene disorder

PGT-SR

What is PGT-SR?

Carriers of balanced chromosomal rearrangements are typically healthy, but are at risk of having unsuccessful pregnancies or children with genetic disorders. PGT-SR can help. Often people who have had recurrent miscarriages, a previous pregnancy or child with chromosomal rearrangement, or a general infertility workup would have their chromosomes analyzed.

Is PGT-SR Right for Me?

If that testing has revealed that you carry the following, PGT-SR might be right for you.

  • Translocations
  • Inversions
  • Deletions
  • Duplications
  • Insertions
