Do IVF Rates Increase Using PGT-a?

Do IVF Rates Increase Using PGT-a?

PGT-a, or preimplantation genetic testing- aneuploidy, is a procedure that examines the chromosomes of an embryo and is performed prior to transferring the embryo(s) back into a patient’s or surrogate’s uterus. It helps identify chromosomal abnormalities that could be passed on.

PGT-a offers physicians and scientists the ability to examine far beyond the appearance of an embryo. Typically, IVF centers look at embryos under a microscope to confirm whether they’re growing and developing. With this technique alone, even the highest rated embryos may result in unexplained IVF failure or miscarriage.

IVF success rates may be raised significantly with PGT-a.

The accuracy of PGT-a in determining chromosomal abnormalitiesexceeds 97 percent. In addition to increasing IVF PGT-a success rates, this procedure also helps decrease the chance of multiple births by transferring only one embryo.

What are the benefits of IVF with PGT-a?

Here are some of the benefits of IVF with PGT-a:

  • PGT-a increases IVF success rates
  • PGT-a decreases the chance of multiples
  • PGT-a is completed before implantation
  • PGT-a lowers chance of miscarriage

Am I a candidate for PGT-a?

The following individuals are possible candidates for PGT-a.

  • All IVF patients to select the best quality normal embryo.
  • Women experiencing recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Women with more than one failed fertility treatment
  • Those with chromosomal disorders
