The Importance of a PGT

The goal of a Preimplantation Genetic Test (PGT) is to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy, without the risk of transmitting a genetic defect. This test is a good option in this situations:

  • Couples that have a history of genetic diseases or syndromes.
  • Couples where both have the same mutation after a genetic compatibility study.
  • Repeated failed IVF treatments.
  • Miscarriages.
  • Elderly woman trying to conceive.

 

Types Of Genetic Testing

 

  • PGT-A: Detects numerical abnormalities in the chromosomes. The genetic load of the embryo is analyzed to count if there are more or less chromosomes; it also traces the existence of the X or Y chromosome to know the sex of the embryo.

  • PGT-M: Detects monogenic diseases, which are those caused by an alteration or mutation in the genes, hence analyzing the presence of different hereditary diseases.

  • PGT-SR: Detects structural alterations. This test is done when someone in the couple is a carrier of a chromosomal alteration such as breaks, misunions, translocations, duplications or other structural rearrangements that can affect the embryo.
