ADVANTAGES OF PGD

  • Avoid elective abortion: with PGD, the chromosomal analysis is done before pregnancy and embryos are tested for abnormalities before being inserted into the uterus.
  • Parents who are carriers for certain genetic conditions may undergo PGD to ensure that their children will not suffer from that condition.
  • Significant reduction of the medical costs because certain diseases require expensive medication and treatment throughout an individual’s lifetime.
  • Increase of the implantation rate, and reduction of the miscarriage risk.
