Hello dr.,
for the purpose of only gender selection ,is PGD is better than aCGH ? Heard that aCGH cant detect gender as reliably as PGD with FISH. Also, aCGH to be performed on day3 or day5 embryo?

Dear Divya:

PGD stands for pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Both FISH and CGH are methods of doing PGD. CGH is far superior at evaluating all 23 chromosome pairs than FISH. Thus, you get far more useful information with CGH. Since most of our family balancing patients do not want twins, this allows for a single embryo transfer with high success rates. We believe day 5 biopsy is better.
