How to improve pregnancy rates? PGD Labs gives you some answers!

At PGDLabs we work every day to improve pregnancy rates for those people who have fertility problems or are carriers of genetic disorders.

Infertility is caused 30 % by the male and 30 % by the female. 20 % may be mixed or combined causes and the remaining 20 % are cases that may remain unexplained

Causes for infertility

  • In the woman, 80 % of sterility or infertility problems are caused by:
    • Advanced age. When a woman is over 35, the chances of getting pregnant decrease. At 40 years old, the probability of getting pregnant is less than 10%.
    • Diseases like endometriosis, where the uterine tissue is outside the uterus.
    • Other factors such as sexually transmitted diseases, chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, asthma, depression or thyroid problems.
    • Tubal factor, where the Fallopian tubes experience some form of lesion.
    • Genetic disorder that affects fertility
    • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
    • Premature ovarian failure
  • In the male, they may be caused by:
    • Hormonal disorder.
    • Unhealthy habits, such as drugs, tobacco or alcohol; obesity; bad diet or stress.
    • Cryptorchidism: testicles do not descend into the scrotum and the temperature is inadequate.
    • Varicocele: the veins of the spermatic cord get dilated.
    • Genetic and chromosomal disorders
    • Testicular surgery complications, swelling, trauma, tumors , Infections
    • Defects of tubules that transport sperm.
    • Environmental causes (overheating, X-Ray, chemicals)

How can pregnancy rates be improved in these cases?

Phosphorus panel is a genetic test that is performed through the application of NGS (Next-generation sequencing) with the goal of identifying multiple genetic factors that may be the cause of infertility in the couple. At PGDLabs we offer you two types of panels:

  • The female fertility panel, that includes the analysis of 73 genes associated with a higher risk of infertility. For example, screening is performed for primary ovarian insufficiency, syndromes such as the polycystic ovary syndrome or ovarian hyperstimulation, and miscarriages caused by thrombophilia.
  • A male fertility panel, that includes the analysis of 20 genes associated with a greater risk of infertility. For example, screening is performed for Y chromosome microdeletions, aneuploidies of the sex chromosome or the congenital absence of the ductus deferens.

Both studies allow for an early identification of the cause of infertility due to genetic factors and, therefore, for an early intervention and a personalized treatment based on obtained results.
