PreventionGenetics Releases New Panels for Infertility and
Disorders of Sex Development

Published on .

Infertility is a disorder of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. It affects 10-20% of couples worldwide and is generally attributed to males and females equally.  Infertility evaluations can be an emotional and financial burden for couples.   An infertility evaluation can involve extensive tests including imaging, blood work, semen analysis, biopsies, laparoscopies and more, costing thousands of dollars without a promise to result in a successful pregnancy.  It is estimated that genetic abnormalities including both chromosomal and single-gene alterations can account for up to 30% of cases of infertility (Hotaling 2014). At PreventionGenetics we are committed to helping couples find these genetic answers, offering a Comprehensive Panel, as well as sub panels for Female Infertility, Male Infertility and Disorders of Sex Development.
