Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis PGD

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), a technique used for the early diagnosis of genetic disorders in developing embryos, involves conducting a biopsy of the embryo to identify which cells may contain the disorder. Couples undergoing IVF procedure may have their embryos screened for an assortment of genetic disorders,

and only genetically normal embryos will then be used for embryo transfer back into the woman's uterus. The purpose of PGD is to select only healthy embryos for transfer to the uterus with the goal of achieving more healthy pregnancies, fewer miscarriages, and fewer genetically abnormal offspring.
