    Questions about Preimlantation Genetic Diagnosis

    Hi everyone. I am new to this board and was hoping to find out some information from others about PGD. We just found out last month that our 10 month old son has neurofibromatosis 1 and that my husband has it too. Unfortunately, we discovered my husband had it too late because he never experienced any problems related to it. We would like to have a second child in the future but without the risks of passing it onto our baby. My questions about PGD are:

    1. What are the current costs of it with IVF? Are there additional costs not included in that cost?

    2. What is the process I would have to go through prior to going through this procedure (counseling, medical questions, genetic testing etc.)?

    3. How long does each cycle take?

    4. How many cycles does it usually take to acheive a pregnancy if you have no fertility issues?

    it varies on cost with clinic and location.
    each clinic should be able to provide you with success rates and number of cycles. these are things you shoudl ask at your consult.
    good luck and best wishes
