What are the options if both my partner and I are carriers for the same conditions?

By Masorti Judaism 19th Feb 2021

There are several options available for couples who are carriers for the same condition, known as ‘carrier couples’.

An increasingly popular option is Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD). This is a process that involves IVF to create embryos that can be screened to check if they will develop into an affected child. Only embryos that will not result in having an affected child are chosen to be implanted back in the mothers’ womb.

For information about all the options available, please visit www.jnetics.org or email [email protected].
