An innovative step forward in IVF procedures is offering fresh hope to thousands of women who struggle to conceive. According to the outcome of the latest trial in Britain, the new test significantly increases the possibility of a female achieving a successful conception.
British scientists assert that they’ve developed an embryo screening procedure which triples the likelihood of a woman successfully achieving pregnancy and giving birth.
The embryos are examined to rule out any potential hereditary abnormalities, which are a risk predominantly among older women. The screening checks chromosomes in the embryo and only those embryos with the maximum possibility of success are used.
Experts claim the technology will be up and running in 2-3 years. Being an “older” women myself, I for one think it is not soon enough. Bring it on!
