Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis can be used by people who have a serious inherited disease in their family to avoid passing it onto their children. This page will explain how the treatment works and which conditions you can check for.
What is PGD?
PGD is a treatment which involves checking the genes or chromosomes of your embryos for a specific genetic condition. Because the embryos need to be tested in a lab you will need to have IVF, even if you and your partner have no fertility problems. Embryos which have been tested and are free of the condition will be placed back into your womb to hopefully continue to develop.
