From what age is it advisable to have a PGT?

By Elena Santiago Romero M.D. (gynecologist on Clínica Tambre).
Last Update: 12/02/2021

PGT is a technique that allows the study of the embryo's karyotype and is indicated for several reasons. One of them is the woman's age. From 38 years of age onwards, we will recommend it after IVF because we know that the rate of chromosomally altered embryos (aneuploid) increases exponentially with respect to younger women and, the older the woman is, the lower the probability of having healthy embryos.

This explains why the probability of pregnancy becomes less and less with the passage of time, just as the probability of miscarriage increases with age.
