PGD - Pre Implantation Genetic Diagnosis
Does anyone know where this procedure is performed in Durban? My wife and have tried ART using ICSI (she was clinically pregnant) but she miscarried (clinical miscarriage). We were not given a speciific reason as to why the miscarriage took place but were told that maybe my chromosomal make up was abnormal. Can anyone who knows more about this subject and where to go and have this PGD done please let me know.

I would suggest that you contact the Infertility unit at the academic hospital in Durban. Pre-implantation diagnosis would be part of an assisted reproduction program where the embryo is tested before it is put back.
