When is PGD recommended?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/24/2022

Answer by Crea Centro médico de Reproducción Asistida:

The PGD technique is indicated in the following cases:

  • Couples who are carriers of a genetic disease, such as cystic fibrosis or osteogenesis imperfecta
  • Alterations in the karyotype of one of the members of the couple
  • Men with FISH in altered spermatozoa or severe male factor
  • Implantation failures in IVF
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Repeat abortions

In the case of couples carrying a genetic alteration or monogenic disease, a study is needed prior to PGD to locate the mutation and be able to look for it in the cells of the embryo to be analyzed
