Commonly asked questions and their answers

Is it possible to identify chromosomal abnormalities in embryos based on their morphological appearance?

The appearance of embryos cannot give us any information on chromosomal abnormalities. The evaluation of embryos is performed by observing their morphological appearance (number of cells, presence of fragmentation etc.) under the microscope and it correlates with the prognosis of achieving a pregnancy. It is very possible for an embryo of excellent quality to carry chromosomal abnormalities. For the detection of such anomalies, a special genetic testing called preimplantation genetic testing should be applied. In this way, healthy embryos can be selected for transfer to the uterus, while embryos with anomalies can be excluded.
