Due to my problems with ectopic pregnancy and having one fallopian tube left that was blocked, my only option to conceive a child was through IVF only. I was losing hope and after my first consultation with Dr. Amezquita it gave me a positive feeling that I will have success in conceiving a child. My husband and I can’t afford to go with the process of IVF in San Diego, CA so I researched a lot of clinics and hospital in Mexico to find out who could help us. Then I found Tijuana Fertility Clinic and from the initial conversation that I had with Gisela (Office Coordinator) by email, she was well-detailed with the pricing and the process of the IVF. She was always quick in responding to all my questions because I worry with my body a lot of times. They gave us a positive response from the very first conversation that’s what made us decide to choose this clinic. From the clinic staffs, clinic cleanliness through the caring doctor and the caring nurses, we have no regrets go to this clinic to conceive our first child! I’m currently 7 weeks! Dr. Amezquita spoke fluent in English and was very knowledgeable when it comes to women reproductive system. He knows more than I do when it comes to women anatomy. Very impressive doctor! The front desk was also very nice and always smiling when we arrive to our appointment. And if we had trouble crossing the border because of traffic, we call the clinic and they were always flexible and understanding since we were traveling from San Diego. We highly recommend for women who are seeking to do an IVF. We love this clinic and we will go back for our 2nd child later! Thank you to Dr. Amezquita and whole staff for helping us conceive our first baby!

I can't recommend Imer Reproduccion Humana enough. For the past three years my wife and I have been trying to have a child to no avail. Needless to say, without fertility treatments our chances of having a child were slim. On the US side the prices for fertility were more than I could afford. After further research I found Imer fertility center in Tijuana. From the very beginning the staff was very professional, explaining in detail the process my wife and I would go through. After setting up an initial appointment I saw the fertility center and met the staff. I was pleased to see how clean the facility is and how courteous the people are, especially our Dr. Sandra Y. Orendain who could communicate in English and Spanish and genuinely seemed to love her job and helping couples. Once we had ample information, my wife and I proceeded with treatment. From the moment treatment began patience was a requirement. Fertility treatments greatly increased our odds to conceive but it wasn't 100% guaranteed. The facility center is in Tijuana which meant going back and forth from the US to Mexico over and over. Everything tack together would get stressful which is where patience and resolve come in but my wife an I were determined to see it through After the fertility treatments were over, we were thrilled beyond belief to hear my wife was pregnant. I can't describe how happy we were to see our baby for the first time in the ultrasound. My life now consist of cleaning 6 dirty diapers minimum a day, sleeping 2 to 6 hours a night and I couldn't be happier. We have a beautiful baby boy and I can't thank Dr Sandra and her staff enough for our little miracle. I highly recommend to anyone having difficulty conceiving children to set up a consultation and see for yourself. You'll be thankful you did in 9 months. With Love and endless thanks

What is Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)?

In vitro fertilization with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis allows couples who have an increased risk of passing a genetically inherited disease to their children to screen embryos before implantation. Screening embryos allows fertility specialists to remove embryos with chromosomal defects and use only health embryos for the embryo transfer procedure of IVF. PGD can also be used for gender selection, to prevent children being born with gender-linked diseases or to allow couples balance the gender of their family.

 

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) Procedure

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis works by identifying embryos that have defective chromosomes. Chromosomal abnormalities in embryos suggest children born from these embryos would have a genetic disorder. If PGD is used to help couples choose the sex of their child, fertility specialists identify embryos with an unbalanced number of male (Y) or female (X) chromosomes. Embryos with a higher percentage of one of the sex-identifying chromosomes are more likely to produce a child of the corresponding sex. MicroSort is a commonly used treatment method for gender selection that is combined with PGD. The procedure for in vitro fertilization with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is the same as for traditional IVF until the embryo implantation stage. After the eggs and sperm have been collected and used to fertilize the embryo, the embryos are screened by fertility specialists and suitable embryos are selected for use in embryo transfer.

 

Laws of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)

Gender selection is legal in many countries but remains a controversial addition to infertility treatments. Some countries, such as the UK, Australia and Canada, only allow sex selection if offspring is in danger of a sex-linked genetic disorder. In other countries, such as India and China, determining the sex of a fetus prior to birth is illegal, gender selection of any sort is also illegal. Yet, despite the limited availability and expense of sex selection procedures, its attractiveness is emergent. In countries where gender selection is legal, cost is still an issue. In the United States, IVF with PGD can cost up to $19,000, which is why many Americans find themselves seeking fertility treatment in places like Mexico, Costa Rica and other nearby countries. Some European countries, such as Germany and Italy have banned embryo freezing, egg donation and even embryo screening for genetic diseases, compelling couples to travel to countries where these treatments are legal. Some religions prohibit gender selection and for this reason PGD is banned in many countries.
