I wish I'd realized that it discusses it.
"It was a lengthy, difficult experience of endeavoring—and losing—before we investigated IVF. A large portion of my pregnancies (there have been many) self-ended before the eight-week point. After tests, we understood I convey a chromosomal variation from the norm, which was likely why babies we created normally weren't creating as they should. IVF with preimplantation hereditary finding (PGD) was our solitary alternative in the event that I needed to wind up pregnant with my own sound kid and convey it to term.
I don't know there's anything anybody could have instructed me to help set me up—there are the infusions and medicines, at that point a few arrangements for blood tests and ultrasounds, and it's physically debilitating and difficult. Be that as it may, simply having the capacity to converse with somebody about it is useful. Everybody I know who's experienced IVF has had their own particular one of a kind affair. I wish I'd been more open to discussing it amid the first round, however, I didn't need anybody to know."
I've read a lot about PGD on forums. People react differently. But the majority seems to be for the procedure as there are more benefits than risks of it. PGD allows a fertility care team to determine if embryos are effected by a genetic disease. This information helps to know which embryos are best suited for transfer. And which ones are most likely to result in a healthy pregnancy. Understanding the benefits of PGD can help us to decide if this treatment option is best for our needs.
As far as we know, PGD is performed by removing a single cell from a developing embryo. Then the following is performed. The removed cell is thoroughly analyzed and evaluated to determine if a genetic disease exists. Once all embryos are tested, a healthy embryo is implanted in the mother. Other healthy embryos are usually stored for future use. Embryos that have a genetic disease are obviously not used for IVF.
So who benefits from PGD. While it can benefit all couples, there are certain groups of people that should consider having PGD done as a part of fertility treatment. Such individuals are more likely to have embryos with genetic diseases:
Who are known carriers for genetic diseases.
Who themselves have a chromosomal disorder.
Women who are over age 35.
Who have had multiple miscarriages.
Who have had multiple failed IVF cycles.
Couples who have a child with a genetic disease.
At Biotexcom we were explained a number of benefits of PGD including:
The ability to test for more than 100 genetic diseases!!
Identifying embryos that are of a poor quality and likely to result in miscarriage before implantation.
Peace of mind that the developing embryo is healthy and well suited for live birth.
Well, I was 36 and dh has the issues in his family. So we were seriously considering PGD testing at the clinic. Then we followed our dr's advice. As the time showed we did right..
