What are the advantages of doing a PGD?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 08/09/2018

Even if an embryo looks good morphologically, it may be that genetically it is not normal and may lead to implantation failure when transferred to the uterus or, worse, an unviable pregnancy that ends in miscarriage.

It can also happen that an embryo with some chromosomal disease or genetic alteration compatible with life is implanted and, finally, a baby with some serious disease is born.

Thanks to PGD, those embryos that are genetically healthy can be selected before being transferred to the uterus, reducing the abortion rates and increasing those of live newborns.
