The Benefits of Preimplantation Genetic Testing

PGT may be recommended by your IVF doctor

In the journey of parenthood, advancements in medical science have provided new avenues for those facing challenges in conceiving a healthy child. One such breakthrough is preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), a crucial step in the process of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). This revolutionary technology brings hope and assurance to couples, particularly women over the age of 37, who are at a higher risk of conceiving fetuses with abnormal embryo genetics.

We offer PGT as a step in our IVF program at Vejthani Hospital’s V-Fertility Center in Bangkok, which is staffed by some of the best IVF doctors in Thailand.

What is Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)

PGT is genetic testing that may reveal unfavorable chromosomes in the embryos. Having this testing performed before they are transferred into the uterus allows you to reduce the risks of passing genetic abnormalities along to your child.

A Shield Against Chromosomal Abnormalities

As women age, the likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities in embryos increases. PGT is a powerful tool that ensures that embryos selected for implantation during IVF have the correct number of chromosomes. This significantly enhances the chances of a successful conception and the birth of a healthy baby.

Tailoring Solutions for Specific Challenges

Beyond age-related concerns, preimplantation genetic testing also offers a lifeline for couples at risk of passing on inherited genetic diseases. By examining embryos for specific genetic markers, PGT allows for the identification and selection of embryos free from these hereditary conditions, reducing the risk of passing them on to the next generation.

A Ray of Hope for Recurrent Miscarriages

For women with a history of recurrent miscarriages due to chromosomal abnormalities, PGT offers a path to a successful pregnancy. By screening embryos before implantation, the likelihood of miscarriage is significantly reduced, providing newfound hope for those who have faced the heartbreak of repeated pregnancy loss.

Navigating the Path of IVF: A Step-by-Step Guide

For couples who are having problems conceiving, IVF may be their best chance of becoming parents. However, IVF is a process, not a quick fix. PGT is performed after the fertilized have developed into embryos and before the embryos are transferred into the uterus. Here are the steps of IVF:

Ovulation Induction

The IVF journey begins with ovulation induction, where medications are used to stimulate the ovaries into producing multiple eggs, which increases the chances of successful fertilization.

Egg Retrieval

Once the eggs are mature, they are carefully retrieved from the ovaries using a minimally invasive procedure.


In the laboratory, eggs are fertilized with sperm, either through traditional methods or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Embryo Culture

As the fertilized eggs develop into embryos, their progress is closely monitored during this crucial phase.

PGT – Ensuring Genetic Integrity

Before implantation, embryos undergo PGT to ensure they have the correct number of chromosomes and are free from specific genetic abnormalities.

Embryo Transfer

Selected embryos are then transferred to the uterus, increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy.

Freezing Unused Embryos

Unused embryos can be frozen for use in the future, a vital option for older women whose fertility may decline over time.

The V-Fertility Center: Excellence in Reproductive Medicine

At the forefront of reproductive medicine, the V-Fertility Center at Vejthani Hospital offers a comprehensive range of services, ensuring that hopeful parents receive the best care and support. Here is a list of all the reproductive services we offer at V-Fertility Center.

In-vitro-fertilization (IVF)

A leading center for IVF, the clinic employs state-of-the-art techniques to enhance the chances of successful conception.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

For cases of male infertility, ICSI provides a targeted solution by directly injecting a sperm into an egg, maximizing the chances of fertilization.

Preimplantation Genetic Testing Diagnosis (PGD)

Beyond PGT, PGD allows for the screening of embryos for a wide range of genetic conditions, offering personalized solutions for families facing unique challenges.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI is a less invasive fertility treatment, introducing sperm directly into the uterus during the optimal window for conception.

Blastocyst Trophectoderm Biopsy

This advanced technique involves extracting cells from the outer layer of embryos, providing additional information for precise genetic screening.
