Genetic services

We offer pre-implantation genetic screening and diagnosis on our genetics programme. 

You’ll most likely be considering one of our genetic screening services for one of two reasons: either you or your partner have a genetic illness or condition that you’re worried about passing to your children, or you’re looking to try an additional procedure that could improve your chances of success on your next round of treatment. 

How can CARE help?

How we help depends on the type of genetic screening you’re looking for. We offer two genetic treatments: 

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) allows us to genetically test embryos and only transfer those that are genetically healthy. So, if you or your partner have a genetic illness or condition in your family and are worried about passing it on to your children, PGD could give you some peace of mind.  

Pre-implantation genetic screening 

Pioneered by our very own scientists, pre-implantation genetic screening – usually known as PGS – allows us to examine your embryos on a chromosomal level. By only keeping the embryos with perfectly formed chromosomes for transfer, we hope to reduce the chances of miscarriage and improve your chance of success.

If you’re interested in either of our genetic procedures – even if you’re only just thinking about your first round of IVF treatment - your consultant will be able to help you decide whether they’re right for you.  

It's been amazing, surreal. I have always known that I was an IVF baby.

Introduce yourself on our bulletin board and chat to some of our other patients. It can be really comforting to talk to others going through a similar experience, and they might have useful advice for those new to treatment.
