Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
A Preimplantation genetic diagnosis, or PGD, can detect a number of genetic defects that may affect embryos. In fact, PGD can detect over 100 genetic conditions and diseases. With over 40 years of combined experience, our doctors at Denver Fertility Albrecht Women’s Care in Englewood, CO, offer a wide range of assisted reproductive technologies and therapies to help hopeful parents grow their families.
Who Should Consider PGD?
Couples who are at risk of passing on certain genetic conditions are candidates for PGD. You may wish to consider this type of testing if you or your partner:
- Are a carrier of single-gene disorders
- Are a carrier of sex-linked genetic disorders
- Have a history of recurrent pregnancy loss
In some instances, PGD can also be used in the gender selection process.
