We recommend that you meet with a genetic counselor who can review your specific chromosome translocation as well as your personal and family history to provide an accurate risk assessment for fetal chromosome abnormalities and pregnancy complications. A genetic counselor can review your available reproductive options including preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) also called preimplantation testing. PGD can be used to detect chromosome abnormalities in embryos that were created using assisted reproductive techniques such as in-vitro fertilization. In-vitro fertilization involves removing egg cells from a woman's ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm cells outside the body. To perform preimplantation testing, a small number of cells are taken from these embryos and tested for certain genetic changes.
You can find a genetic counselor at the National Society of Genetic Counselors website or through companies like mine, AccessDNA. We wish you the best.
