Genetic Screening

Genetic Screening

Part of your fertility treatment could include genetic screening, and this process boosts the chances of success for procedures such as IVF. Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) can all provide patients and their caregivers with a deeper understanding of the genetic markers in play. Genetic screening procedures increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

Some of the benefits of CCS include:

  • Providing doctors with the highest quality embryos possible out of a selection pool.
  • Better quality embryos, which have higher implantation rates and lead to lower miscarriage rates.
  • Boosting the chances of success in single embryo transfer (SET) procedures.
  • Diminishing the risks associated with multiple pregnancies, such as higher risk of premature birth, low birth weight, risk of needing C-section delivery, time spent in neonatal intensive care, and various other risks to the mother.

Your RMA of Southern California team can provide genetic screening services so hopeful parents can have greater peace of mind about their fertility treatment. Genetic screenings like CCS are tremendously beneficial to IVF procedures, as well, since it increases the chances of implantation by ensuring only the best quality embryos are used. CCS services are provided by the Foundation for Embryonic Competence, so hopeful parents who come to RMA of Southern California for fertility treatment can rest assured knowing that RMA of Southern California only uses the most rigorously validated and widely supported CCS platform available.

Ask your RMA of Southern California doctor if a CCS or other genetic screening procedure would benefit you.
