The idea of genetically testing embryos to select the best embryo for transfer is not a new concept.  We have been applying one technology or another for over a decade and yet we remain unsettled in terms of answering some of the basic questions surrounding proper clinical application of this technology.  In this blog post we address the current controversies surrounding this technology and attempt to answer the questions of who should undergo testing, and which specific testing should be offering to our patients.

Why Does A Genetically Normal Embryo Fail To Implant?

In recent years we have developed technology that enables us to determine if an embryo is genetically normal before it is transferred to the uterus. Various technologies are available to analyze cells taken from the embryo at the blastocyst stage of development and these technologies continue to become more sensitive and comprehensive. With the ability to confidently transfer genetically normal (euploid) embryos, our expectations for successful implantation are high. However, in spite of the application of this technology, a substantial number of these embryos fail to result in a live birth and we are left with the task of understanding these failures and explaining them to our patients.
