Prenatal examinations during pregnancy are very important because during these examinations the doctor conducts a series of tests to make sure that you and your baby are healthy. These tests are carried out during examinations, which are recommended to be done once a month from 4 to 28 weeks of pregnancy, twice a month from 28 to 36 weeks, and every week from 36 weeks to birth. Women with complicated pregnancies need to see a doctor more often. It’s important to understand what kind of tests they are and why you need to take them so that you can make an informed decision whether you need them.
The use of preimplantation diagnostics| edit code]
At present, preimplantation genetic diagnostics (before implantation into the uterus) of an embryo developed as a result of artificial insemination (with a cell number of about 10) is already available in a number of countries. The presence of markers of about 6,000 hereditary diseases is determined, after which the question of the feasibility of implanting the embryo into the uterus is decided. This allows you to have your own child for couples who have not previously risked due to the high risk of hereditary diseases. On the other hand, some experts believe that the practice of interfering with the natural diversity of genes carries certain hidden risks.
