Welcome to Australian Concept Infertility Medical Center, a leading fertility clinic dedicated to providing couples with the best possible outcomes for their pregnancy journey. We offer state-of-the-art assisted reproductive techniques, including Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS), which is designed to ensure the genetic health of embryos before implantation.
What is PGS?
PGS is a test that screens embryos for any chromosomal abnormalities before they are implanted in the uterus. By screening embryos before implantation, we can increase the chances of conception and reduce the risk of miscarriage. PGS can also allow couples to plan their family size and even select the gender of their child.
Who should consider PGS?
Couples who are at an increased risk of having abnormal numbers of chromosomes, such as those with recurrent miscarriages or increased maternal age, should consider a PGS test. PGS is also beneficial for couples who have had previous failed IVF cycles or those who are carriers of a known genetic disorder.
How does PGS differ from PGD?
PGD (Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis) and PGS (Pre-implantation Genetic Screening) are both genetic tests used during assisted reproduction. However, PGS screens for chromosomal abnormalities while PGD is used to detect known genetic disorders.
The benefits of PGS:
There are many advantages to using PGS. These include:
Increased likelihood of conception: PGS can help identify the most genetically sound embryos for implantation, improving the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Reduced risk of miscarriage: Screening for chromosomal abnormalities can help reduce the risk of miscarriage.
Planned family size and gender selection: PGS can help couples plan their family size and even select the gender of their child.
Decreased IVF treatment costs and time: By reducing the chances of another IVF attempt, PGS can decrease the overall cost and time of treatment.
The success rate of PGS:
At Australian Concept Infertility Medical Center, the success rate of PGS is between 60-70%. While the success rate varies depending on individual circumstances, PGS remains a highly beneficial option for couples experiencing infertility.
