PGT-A

Preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) boosts chances of your fertility success by giving us valuable genetic insights.

PGT-A's Vital Role in IVF Treatments

PGT-A empowers our expert fertility specialists to assess embryos for chromosomal abnormalities before implantation, significantly improving the chances of a successful pregnancy and healthy birth. By identifying the most viable embryos with the correct number of chromosomes, we can tailor IVF treatments to individual patients, ensuring the highest likelihood of a successful pregnancy.

At IVF1, we are proud to offer PGT-A as part of our comprehensive fertility solutions, providing hope and exceptional care as you embark on your journey towards parenthood.

PGT-A FAQ

PGT-A, or preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy, is a specialized procedure used in conjunction with IVF. It tests embryos for chromosomal abnormalities before they are implanted in the uterus. A small biopsy from each embryo is taken and its chromosomes are analyzed to check for the correct number of chromosomes (euploidy) or an abnormal number (aneuploidy). Aneuploidy can lead to implantation failure, miscarriages, or genetic disorders like Down Syndrome.

PGT-A is often recommended for couples with a history of recurrent miscarriages, unsuccessful IVF cycles, advanced maternal age, or known chromosomal disorders. It is also considered by those who want to increase their chances of a successful pregnancy and decrease the likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities.

The primary benefit of PGT-A is the increased likelihood of a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. It reduces the risk of miscarriage and the birth of a child with a chromosomal disorder. It can also help select the best embryo for transfer, potentially reducing the number of IVF cycles needed.

The risks associated with PGT-A are generally low but include potential damage to the embryo during biopsy. There's also a slight chance of false positives or negatives. It's important to note that PGT-A does not test for single gene disorders or guarantee a successful pregnancy; it only screens for chromosomal normalcy.

PGT-A adds an extra step to the IVF process. After egg retrieval and fertilization, embryos are grown in the lab for about five to six days. Then, a few cells are biopsied and sent for genetic analysis. While awaiting results, embryos are usually frozen. Once the analysis is complete, a genetically normal embryo is selected for transfer in a subsequent IVF cycle. This process can extend the time frame of IVF but can improve the chances of a successful, healthy pregnancy.

Patient Testimonials

The staff is amazing here. I’m in the middle of IVF and had an issue with a medication and they went above and beyond to make sure everything was done to continue our journey (on the weekend no less); truly above and beyond. The staff are very caring and professional. Definitely recommend Dr. Morris and this amazing practice.

Megan Buetikofer

Dr. Morris is by far the best fertility doctor! When I transferred to IVF1 from my previous fertility doctor, he read all my medical records in depth. Never once did I feel stressed or unsure of what was happening. The entire staff there is so nice and make you feel so comfortable. It was so easy to schedule appointments, get medications, or ask a nurse a question. My calls were always returned within 20 minutes. I highly recommend IVF1! Dr. Morris made it possible for us to get pregnant!

Dr. Morris and staff were very friendly. Dr. Morris was very informative and patient with answering all questions I had. We were uncertain on the options and next steps to take and Dr. Morris explained all the details and options we have. Excellent staff and a great doc.

Jenita Crawford

I don't even know where to start...THANK YOU! Thank you for giving us our son. We went through a year of IVF. Although there may have been things I didn't want to hear (chances of pregnancy, factors out of our control, etc.) it was important to hear the truth and know what our chances were. The staff was always great with us and they were very patient. They really have everything figured out and what the best options out for outcomes. I never felt pressured to make certain decisions and always felt well informed. Again, I can't thank Dr. Morris and all his staff for everything!!!

Your experience with this company will be nothing but perfect. From the initial call to the receptionist. To speaking with the nursing staff, billing, etc. everyone wants to help you with family planning. No matter what my outcome is, I know I’m with a co that will make sure I have the best chances. Thank you to Dr Randy Morris and Staff a bunch!

Misty Johnson

I’m so grateful to have been referred to Dr. Morris and his team! I’ve spent the last month or so working with the team and they’ve made what is naturally a hard process both mentally and physically as comforting and easy as possible. Dr. Morris’s success rates speak for themselves, but what I want to let everyone know is that he is equally comforting. A special thank you to Jocelyne, Pam and Barbie, these three women on his staff from front desks to RNs really have made the experience an extremely positive one. PS. My cousin who referred me to Dr. Morris has a smart, healthy and beautiful baby boy who he helped bring into this world!
