Dr Mark Livingstone, IVF specialist, from a webinar recording in September 2022.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis / Testing (known as PGD or PGT) is a technique which can be used in an IVF process to differentiate embryos before transfer.

Dr Mark Livingstone discussed the PGD process generally and in relation to carriers for Fragile X who are pre-mutation or full mutation carriers.

The webinar was supported by an educational grant from fertility company Genea.
