Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
PGT-M, previously known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), is a treatment which involves checking the genes or chromosomes of your embryos for a specific genetic condition.
Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis is used alongside in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycle for couples who have a known inherited disease in their family, such that they can avoid passing on the genetically transmitted condition to their child and future generations. In some instances, neither prospective parent may be aware of a condition as they may simply be a carrier. PGD involves checking the genes or chromosomes of your embryos for a specific genetic condition ensuring that only embryos that are not at risk of developing the known disorder are identified for implantation.
