The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.

PGD Testing Cost in India starts from US $ 1400 for 4 embryos and varies depending on different factors, like complexity and aim of the test, facility, accreditation and the city where the test is being done. Of course, the more the number of embryos tested, the higher the cost.

Factors that affect PGD Testing cost in India
  • Doctor’s Fees

    An important expense when it comes to your PGD cost in India is going to be your doctor’s fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced and skilled IVF experts who are experienced in doing such tests. However, the cost of the procedure varies depending on the experience of the doctor and the approach to treatment.

  • Facility

    Having your Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) performed in an accredited medical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable and all inclusive.

We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.

Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

What is Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) ?

PGD, Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis is a group of genetic assays used to diagnose a specific genetic defect that is known to be carried by one or both the parents. PGD test is done on embryos before they are implanted in the uterus.

PFD testing is usually done if one or both the parents are known to suffer from a specific defect or if they have a family history of a disease. If PGD identifies the disease in the embryo, that embryo is not transplanted. While PFD testing is not a 100 percent guarantee of a defect-free birth, it does provide tremendous relief to parents, dramatically decreasing the chances of an affected pregnancy, and helps prevent genetic disorders from getting passed on to the next generations.

PGD is also helpful for couples who face unexplained infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, repetitive IVF failures or male factor infertility.

Am I a good Candidate?

PGD is most commonly suggested for women with advanced maternal age (40 or older) or couples that are aware that they are carriers, or potential carriers, of a certain genetic disorder, like Mutations in BRCA1 (a cancer causing gene), sickle cell disease, Huntington’s disease, Muscular dystrophy and myotonic dystrophy or a history of sex linked genetic disorders.

You would also be advised PGD testing if you have a previous child with genetic disorder, you have had recurrent miscarriages, have had repeated IVF failures, or if you or your partner is a carrier of chromosomal translocations.

How is PGD Testing done?

Step 1

The PGD process begins by obtaining embryos developed in an IVF cycle. Once embryos have been retrieved, one or two cells are biopsied from the embryo.

Step 2

This procedure involves removing either a polar body, which is half of the maternal DNA, or a blastomere, which is a cell from the embryo that contains its DNA.

Step 3

Once cells have been extracted, lab procedures are performed to test for abnormalities. The two most common techniques are fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

What is the Recovery after PGD Testing like?

You should be able to go home immediately after the screening. You will be able to return to your normal activities, including driving and working.

What Results Can I Expect from PGD Testing?

Overall, the chance of a couple having a baby born following treatment is around 20% per cycle (one in five). Your chances increase if you progress successfully through each step of the treatment process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Women who are non-carriers of genetic disease most often choose PGS in order to ensure that the embryos transferred have a normal chromosomal makeup. Couples who are seeking to screen embryos for a specific disease will most often choose PGD.

PGS is now known asPreimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies (PGT-A), under the new nomenclature.

Unlike PGD, Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) does not check the DNA or identify a specific genetic disease. PGS simply checks if there are any abnormal number of chromosomes in the embryo (aneuploidy). The doctor can identify teh embryos which have too few or too many chromosomes and thus choose not to implant them.

Down’s syndrome which is caused because of the presence of an extra chromosome can be ruled out by PGT-A.

PGD test on the other hand is a much more complex test to examine the genes that make up the chromosome to check them for a specific disease. So, if you or your partner are known to suffer from any genetic disease, your doctors would recommend you to undergo PGD testing.

Data from years of PGD tests reveals that these tests neither raise the risk of birth defects in a newborn, nor risk the survival of the embryo. The testing involves just removing a small group of (5-10) cells from an embryo at day five, at which point the embryo is composed of 150 cells, which is not known to cause any harm to the embryo.

PGD testing is done on embryos before they are transferred to the womb. Although no other test is as good as PGD testing for identifying genetic disorder, there are tests which can check genetic abnormalities after the embryo is transplanted and pregnancy is confirmed.
These include biopsy of the placenta at 10 -12 weeks of pregnancy, known as Chorionic villus sampling (CVS), Amniocentesis, which is done at 16-18 weeks of pregnancy, and few other blood tests and ultrasounds.
