Preimplantation genetic screening in Hyderabad

Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) is a popular medical procedure performed to determine the presence of aneuploidy in a developing embryo created through in-vitro transplantation before pregnancy. It refers to the parents suffering from a genetic disorder, and testing is conducted on an embryo to determine if the embryo also has any deformities because only unaffected embryos are then transferred to the uterus to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Aneuploidy occurs due to an unequal division of sperm and ovum. It is characterized by monosomy (absence of one chromosome) and trisomy (presence of an extra chromosome). Aneuploidy is a main cause of miscarriage, failed implantation, as well as the major birth cause of birth or genetic defects in children.

PGS improves the chances of a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.

How Preimplantation genetic screening works?

The PGS is performed after 5 or 6 six days of embryo development that is the blastocyst stage.

After the IVF process, the embryos are developed for 3-5 days.
After the development, cells are removed from the embryo's blastula stage with the help of the biopsy procedure.
Then, chromosomes are analyzed for any duplication or deletion.
The healthy or unaffected embryos are then transferred for implantation, and the remaining embryos can be frozen.

Who should consider PGS?

PGS requires an extra step in the IVF process. This extra process increases the chances of a successful pregnancy and reduce the rate of miscarriage and failed transfer.

The women of an older age should also discuss the PGS with their doctor because the age of the female plays a significant role in the IVF process. The ovary of women older than 35 years of age does not work well and can result in genetic abnormalities. But there are few chances of genetic abnormalities in younger women also. So it is recommended that women of any age undergo PGS who recently experience frequent miscarriages and failed implantation by natural or any fertility treatment.
