    I need an IVF treatment and I’m interested in the fertility clinic Reproductive Health Center Tucson because it was recommended to me and seems to be extremely positively rated on several platforms on the internet. I’m interested in other fertility centers, though.

    I’d also like to know if it’s possible to genetically test embryos at this center. My husband and I don’t have any fertility problems, but I’ve heard that by using this method you can increase your pregnancy chances and we just want to play it safe.

  2. Hi Karen,

    I encourage you to visit our directory of fertility clinics in Arizona where you can obtain interesting information about the Reproductive Health Center and other clinics as well.

    On the other hand, I would like to mention that PGD is a genetic analysis that is performed on embryos in order to avoid the transfer of those with chromosomal alterations, which could lead to implantation failure, miscarriage or the birth of a sick baby. PGD is indicated in women over 36-38 years of age since from this age the eggs can accumulate mutations and be defective.

    You can read more here: What Is PGD or Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis?

    I hope I’ve helped you,

  3. Hi Karen

    how’s it going? You’ve already made an appointment? I’d also like to start my IVF treatment now, but not sure because of the virus thing going on if it’s dangerous to my baby if I was getting pregnant now…

    • Hi Carrie,

      there’s absolutely no need to worry as studies have shown that babies born to infected mothers were born free of the virus. In addition, the virus was not found in amniotic fluid, umbilical cord, or breast milk.

      However, keep in mind, that not all clinics have reopened now as each clinic may decide for itself when and how to proceed with IVF cycles. Therefore, it’s best to directly ask your preferred clinic about their protocols.

      Hope this helps you.

      All the best
