Vejthani Hospital Bangkok recommends Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) in Thailand at Vejthani ART Center. We will make your experience a grateful one with our long-term of experience.

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is the genetic testing of embryos produced through in vitro fertilization (IVF). PGD enables physicians to identify embryos carrying specific genetic alterations that can cause disease and transfer those without the specific genetic alterations into a woman’s uterus to start a pregnancy. PGD allows couples at risk of having children with serious genetic disorders to increase their chances of having a child without the disorder.

PGD for Gender Selection

For Medical Reasons

When gender selection is used to prevent a genetic disease, the process is called “medical gender selection“. Some diseases, so called “sex-linked diseases”, are inherited via the mother but only male offspring are affected by them (muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, etc.); in other cases, conditions are more severely expressed in one gender than the other (Fragile X syndrome, autism in males, etc.).

For Non – Medical Reasons: Elective Gender Selection

Sometimes gender selection can be “non-medical” or “elective”. In such cases, a child of a specific gender is desired without obvious medical indications. The most frequent indication for such gender selection is “family balancing,” when one gender is already represented in the family unit, and the other gender is desired.

PGD is a safe and reliable method of Gender Selection

PGD is done before the embryo’s genetic material becomes ‘active’ when the cells inside the embryo are still all identical, and each cell is still capable of becoming any part of a baby. The impact of embryo biopsy on the embryo and subsequent fetus and child is not well known (Exp. Birth defects or chromosomal disorders). There have been no definitive studies of whether the biopsy procedure hinders implantation of the embryo into the uterus to initiate pregnancy, nor have follow up studies of the health of babies born from PGD been conducted. Any potential long-term effects on people born from biopsied embryos have been researching.
