When is PGD done after ICSI?

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

The preimplantation genetic diagnosis or PGD consists of the genetic analysis of an embryo cell to know if it suffers any genetic alteration. This cell biopsy is normally done 3 days after ICSI when the embryo has approximately 8 cells. However, it is also possible to do PGD with blastocysts, by biopsy several cells of the trophectoderm.
