Reducing Pregnancy Loss through Genetic Testing

Today’s Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) helps to increase the healthy birth rates of babies through genetic testing. This is because only the healthiest embryos are transferred for implantation during a fresh IVF cycle and/or Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). Genetic testing helps to reduce the number of cycles required to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS)

PGS is the testing of an embryo’s overall chromosomal normalcy prior to being transferred to the patient’s uterus in conjunction with IVF. PGS detects chromosomal deficiencies – aneuploidy – an extra or missing chromosome in an embryo.

PGS Increases Pregnancy Success Rates Up To 30%

PGS dramatically increases a woman’s chance of conception. Only the healthiest embryo(s) are transferred. Embryo biopsy and screening can increase a patient’s chance of a successful pregnancy by up to 30 percent.

Candidates for PGS

Because advanced maternal age (over 35) adversely affects the quality of a woman’s eggs – oocytes – resulting in chromosomal abnormalities, New Hope Fertility NYC recommends PGS in conjunction with IVF to patients over the age of 35.

Other Candidates for PGS

      • Women having a history of recurrent miscarriages (2 or more)
      • Women having failed IVF cycles
      • Gender Selection – Family Balancing

PGS Detects Low Quality Embryos

By extracting a cell from an embryo and analyzing it, poor quality embryos are detected. Biopsy of this cell will not damage the embryo.

Low quality embryos result in:

      • Low pregnancy success rates
      • High miscarriage rates
      • High chance for birth defects

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

NGS is a new method of PGS. NGS is the latest genetic screening test for primary candidates undergoing IVF. NGS is used for comprehensive chromosome testing of embryos created through IVF. NGS is on the horizon to replacing PGS because of the procedure’s lower cost and reduced errors.

NGS allows embryologists to screen for defects on the chromosomal level with higher accuracy and more detail than ever before. PGS results are comprehensive and a higher resolution than any other genetic testing method because it detects more translocations.

NGS is also helpful for those couples wanting to plan their family through gender selection.
