PGS Success Rates

What are the PGS success rates at our Newport Beach fertility center?

Since we have been performing PGS on blastocysts (day 5 or 6 embryos) at our Newport Beach fertility center, we have found the accuracy of the procedure to be greatly improved but have also realized that there is even more genetic abnormality in eggs that we previously thought.

The graph below shows the percentage of genetically normal eggs of women in various age groups.

In accordance with these findings, younger women are more likely to have at least one genetically normal embryo when PGS is performed as part of their IVF cycle.’ As expected, the percentage of women with at least one normal embryo declines with increasing age.’ The graph below illustrates what we have discovered.’ It should be noted that up to age 40,’ the vast majority of women will have at least one normal embryo.

The results that we have obtained from PGS are even better than we initially expected.’ It is now clear that for women of all ages, PGS from blastocyst biopsy leads to higher pregnancy rates than we have ever experienced previously.’ We now believe that PGS is recommended for all women undergoing IVF to maximize their chances of success.” The graph below shows the pregnancy outcomes of women using PGS since we have been performing blastocyst biopsy with subsequent embryo vitrification.
