Fertility Genetic Testing & Screening
Modern fertility genetic testing and screening methods can provide value at various points in your conception and pregnancy journey. By detecting any potential genetic conditions, you can gain greater insight into factors that might affect the health of your future baby.
Whether going through IVF or striving for a natural pregnancy, this information can offer multiple advantages before you do conceive. Working with your RISE Fertility physician, you can gain a better understanding of all your available options.
CARRIER SCREENING FOR GENETIC CONDITIONS - RECOMMENDED FOR ALL
Genetic Carrier Screening (GCS)
In some cases, a parent may be a carrier for a genetic condition that they themselves do not experience but could pass on to their children. The genetic carrier screening process involves a simple test that can detect hundreds of genetic conditions or diseases that you could carry and potentially pass on to your future child.
By having this knowledge ahead of time, you can prepare to identify any potential symptoms your child may exhibit and start treatment for them sooner in life. In collaboration with expert board-certified genetic counselors, your RISE Fertility physician will review your results in detail and work together to determine the best ways to help you achieve a healthy pregnancy.
EMBRYO GENETIC TESTING - IVF'S POWERFUL SIDEKICK
Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)
PGT Genetic Testing is a cutting-edge technology that, coupled with IVF, can screen embryos for chromosomal problems that can impact your chances of conceiving, risk of miscarriage, and the overall health of a future baby.
Working with your RISE Fertility physician, PGT testing can be used to help minimize the risk of your future baby inheriting a known genetic disease. Contact us to learn more about the process and whether it is the right solution for you.
