What is Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)?
PGD is a technique that assists couples, with a known inherited condition in their family, to avoid passing it on to their children. PGD is used when one or both parents has a known genetic abnormality and diagnostic testing is performed to determine if the embryo has also inherited the abnormality.
The procedure is performed before implantation thus allowing the couple to decide if they wish to continue attempting to conceive with the pregnancy. PGD can test for more than 100 different genetic conditions.
