Genetic testing in the infertile couple

Many couples with problems conceiving discover that they are carriers of some genetic alteration that prevents them from achieving pregnancy, even if it does not have a major impact on their state of health.

For this reason, it is common to include genetic tests during the couple's infertility study, such as, for example, karyotyping and FISH of spermatozoa.

In addition, even if both gametes are well, genetic alterations may arise in the embryo after fertilization, so preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) may also be indicated.
