PGS & PGD Aren’t The Same
PGS (Pre-implantation Genetic Screening)
PGD (Pre-implanation Genetic Diagnosis)
If you plan to have PGS or PGD done, ensure your clinic can, and will, grow your embryos to blastocyst stage. Otherwise the biopsy can have damaging effects
In the case of PGD, ICSI must be used. Ensure you are being treated at a clinic with high fertilization rates (again, at least 70% of mature oocytes)
In the case of PGS, ask your clinic and reference laboratory to provide you data on why they have their policy. Some clinics and reference do not require ICSI to do PGS.
