For a long time, couples who carried the thalassaemia gene - either in one or both parents - had few options when it came to starting a family, and these options often came with difficult decisions. Preimplantation genetic testing, along with in-vitro fertilisation, has given couples the chance to reduce the risk of having a baby with thalassaemia. We explore how preimplantation genetic testing is done, and address the most common concerns regarding this procedure, with Dr Eeson Sinthamoney, Director & Fertility Specialist; and Michelle Lim, Senior Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing Specialist, from Sunfert International Fertility Centre.
