A genetic study of the embryo developed during an IVF treatment cycle is called PGS, which stands for Pre-implantation Genetic Screening, the sole purpose of which is to help you have a normal and healthy baby.
The PGS test:
-Should be carried out on an embryo before it is transferred into a female uterus.
-Ensures the establishment of an embryo that is free from aneuploidies and hence safe to be transferred to the mother.
-Further boosts the pregnancy rates.
-The time required to achieve pregnancy is also reduced.

Our infertility specialists advise this test in the following cases;
-When there is a maternal history of recurrent miscarriages; women with two or more miscarriages fall in this category.
– When the maternal age is either 35 years or above.
-When the couple has had IVF failures in the past, to or more failures are considered significant.
-When the male factor plays a major role in infertility; which includes low sperm quantity as well as quality.
Advantages of PGS test.
-The pregnancy rates increase on every transfer.
