I am going through IVF and have been recommended PGS (preimplantation genetic screening), is it necessary?

Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is commonly offered when a patient’s is undergoing in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment. The test identifies common chromosomal abnormalities in the embryos. Severe abnormalities will not be compatible with life and therefore this test improves pregnancy success rates and reduce miscarriages. It is important to consult with a genetic counsellor.
