Having Fertility Treatment 

Preimplantation Genetic Testing 
Preimplantation genetic testing, known as PGT is a specialised technique that can reduce the risk of having a child with a known genetic condition or chromosomal disorder. PGT is used to detect genetic changes in embryos created using IVF. To perform PGT a small number of cells are taken from IVF embryos and tested for the specific genetic changes. Embryos without the genetic change(s) are implanted in the womb to initiate a pregnancy. 
 
Genetic testing of embryos as part of IVF treatment can mean that fewer embryos are available for your transfer and occasionally testing can give results which are difficult to interpret.
