Preimplanlation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a very early form of prenatal diagnosis. Oocytes or preimplantation embryos are obtained in vitro and are genetically analysed, after which only those embryos that are judged to be free of the genetic defect under consideration are transferred. Initially, PGD was developed to help couples at risk for monogenic diseases.
