Does anyone know about PGD and miscarriage?

Hi, I just miscarried for the 3rd time and had to go through IVF to get pregnant. My RE told me today that on my next cycle of IVF that they would like to do PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis)which is not covered by any insurance and cost $4500.. Has anyone on this forum had this done? If yes, what was the outcome? Please help I havn't spoke to DH about the situation yet and I would like to tell him the pros and cons of this procedure before I consider doing it. Thanks for your help.
Answers:

While I haven't gone through this, I have been informed about PGD because I have a balanced translocation. I've heard that if you get pregnant from IVF and PGD was preformed, you are less likely to m/c because of a chromosome problem because they are checked out before implantation. There are risks that the egg could stop developing and what not, but most information that I have seen, the outcome has been good.


SDScientist emiled me and others a good article on PGD. My RE has recommended it for our next IVF in December. I could email it to you, or you could send a message to SDScientist asking for it. DH and I are still discussing if we want to do this or not.
