Genetic Diagnosis

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis/screening (PGD/PGS) is a diagnostic procedure used in IVF treatment, in cases where there is a risk of developing the genetic disorders by the fetus.

ISIDA clinic was one of the the first in Ukraine to introduce an ultra-precise method of preimplantation genetic screening – the NGS method that allows one to detect any chromosome aberration or  genetic disease caused by a known gene mutation. A distinctive feature of the NGS method is its high accuracy and certainty in detecting genetic anomalies.

NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) improves considerably the efficiency of IVF as even before embryo implantation, it allows detecting all the known chromosomal pathologies which approx. in 50% cases form the reason of the pregnancy failure during IVF program.

How do we perform NGS diagnostics

On the fifth day after fertilization of the embryo, it starts differentiating into intracellular mass which forms basis of the future fetus and into the external layer cells – trophectoderm that will participate in the embryo implantation into uterine cavity and will form fetal part of placenta.

For NGS analysis we take several trophectoderm cells, using highly precise tools. The possibility to damage the embryo in this moment is extremely low.

The cells taken for analysis will be checked with NGS method for genetic or\and chromosomal anomalies. The process is highly precise and allows to detect any genetic decease related to any known genetic decease. The result of the diagnostics with NGS method is 99,9% precise.

While waiting for the analysis results, the embryos are frozen by vitrification, the transfer of the diagnosed embryos shall be done in cryo-cycle preventing the risk of hyper-stimulation. This also improves the efficiency of the embryos implantation into uterine cavity.

PGD/PGS is highly recommended:

  • if the mother is over the age of 35;
  • in case of recurrent miscarriage;
  • if there was a pregnancy with fetal chromosomal abnormalities in the past;
  • in cases of several unsuccessful IVF attempts;
  • in cases where one of the parents has chromosome translocations.

PGD\PGS analysis by NGS allows selecting a chromosomally normal embryo before implantation.

In addition, PGS allows determining the sex of the future baby.

Despite more than one year passed since my last visit to ISIDA clinic, words of appreciation do not have expiry date. I would like to express my appreciation to Kseniia Khazhylenko for being a master of her craft. Thank to het choosing individual IVF treatment program for me, I made it to carry pregnancy. I would also like to thank Kapshyk Irina for carrying out stimulation to its end and making successful transfer afterwards. Special thanks to Ulaeva Evgenia, who did her best, settled all the issues and made me believe in the positive result. I`m the happy Mother of the best daughter in the world now! We celebrate every minute of her presence in our life. In response to the surprised exclamations of our friends and doctors regarding her fast developing , we just smile. She is 5AA after all!

My first treatment using donor eggs at Isida was successful with no problems. I then tried another 5 times with fresh & frozen embryos. The 5th attempt worked for me & I have two beautiful twin girls. Do not give up hope. Keep trying. Isida's pricing is very good & the staff, especially Anna are kind & helpful. I would hope to go back for another child.

Isida clinic has given us not one, but two babies! We did not expect it, but an ultrasound showed that we were blessed with two boys. Now we are worried doubly, but happy twice as much at the same time. We will be great parents of twins, no worries about that!
