Is there any way to get pregnant with normal bay if the husband has chromosome 9 inversion (heterozygous)? What is the chance for him to have normal sperms? IS it possible to select normal sperms in vitro?

Thank you for your interest in contacting HRC Fertility! Patients with infertility are at a higher risk of carrying chromosomal abnormalities compared to those without. To best answer this question, you and your partner would benefit most from seeing a genetic counselor and reviewing each of your karyotype results. Patients with abnormal karyotypes still can have healthy babies! One way we can help is for you and your partner to do PGD testing (preimplantation genetic diagnosis)with an IVF cycle to check your embryo genetics prior to implantation. At this point in time we cannot check the sperm for genetics before they are mixed with the eggs, but maybe someday soon that will be available. Please contact us or schedule a consultation for further information on how we can help.
Best of luck,
Alison Peck, MD FACOG
