What Is your family history? If you or a close family member have a single gene disease you may wish to reduce the risk that your child inherits that disease.
Even if you are perfectly healthy, it is possible that genetic testing could determine that you are a carrier, at an increased risk to have a child with a genetic disease.
Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Monogenic Disease (PGT-M, formerly called PGD) can be used to test embryos for a specific single gene disease such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and sickle cell. PGT-M can test embryos for almost any known single gene disease and help your doctor determine which embryo is most likely to be unaffected by that specific disease.
