The Genetic Compatibility Test is a test that allows us to identify in future parents the presence of disease-causing genes that could be transmitted to their children.
Cell-free foetal DNA blood tests are the most complete non-invasive prenatal tests that exist. They detect the presence of anomalies of chromosomes 21, 18 and 13 (Down, Edwards and Patau syndromes) and the most common anomalies generated by the sex chromosomes (X and Y).
The Preimplantation Genetic Test (PGT) detects and prevents the transmission to the offspring of serious diseases caused by genetic and chromosomal alterations in embryos, before their implantation, to ensure that children are born free of hereditary diseases.
ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is an assisted reproduction technique used as part of an IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment. It enables couples in which the man has been diagnosed with fertility issues to have a child of their own. The semen is provided in a sample or a testicular biopsy – if necessary. Embryologists individually select the best sperm, which is subsequently used to fertilise the eggs.
Egg donation is the process whereby a woman uses the eggs from a donor in order to have their own child. The donor’s eggs are fertilised with sperm, usually from the woman’s partner, to produce embryos. These are then transferred into the womb, making pregnancy possible.
Fertility preservation involves freezing and storing eggs, sperm, or embryos. Techniques for preserving fertility offer women the choice of when to become a mother. These treatments can also be used to ensure patients are able to have children after completing treatments for cancer that may affect their fertility.
