Welcome to Myra IVF, where we understand the strong desire parents have to complete their families with the addition of a son or a daughter. We offer family balancing services, providing couples with at least one child the opportunity to increase the chances of having a child of the less represented gender in their family. We utilize Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) to not only assist in family balancing but also to identify disease-free embryos in cases of sex-linked diseases like Thalassemia and Sickle cell disease.
In 1994, the International Federation of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) Committee for the Ethical Aspects of Human Reproduction and Women’s Health acknowledged that pre-conception sex selection can be justified on social grounds. The objective is to allow children of both sexes to experience the love and care of their parents. Similarly, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Ethics Committee recognized in 2001 that parents have the discretion to make procreative decisions and that sex selection can provide individual and social benefits, such as achieving gender balance in a family or establishing a preferred gender order among children.
At Myra IVF, we offer family balancing through Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS). It is a powerful technique performed on early embryos before implantation in the uterus to examine their genetic makeup. Through PGS, we can not only screen embryos for specific genetic conditions but also identify disease-free embryos in cases of sex-linked diseases like Thalassemia and Sickle cell disease.
During the PGS process, a small sample of cells is extracted from each embryo and analyzed in our advanced genetic laboratory. Our skilled team of genetic specialists performs comprehensive genetic testing, focusing on the specific gene mutations associated with Thalassemia and Sickle cell disease. This enables us to determine which embryos are free from these genetic disorders. By selecting disease-free embryos through PGS, we can offer couples a higher chance of achieving a healthy pregnancy and having a child free from these debilitating conditions.
Our approach at Myra IVF is to provide you with the knowledge and options necessary to make informed decisions about your family’s future. We understand the importance of helping you achieve your family balancing goals while maintaining ethical considerations and providing compassionate care throughout your journey.
