Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is used for couples who either have a child with a genetic disease, or they have a family member who does. Dr Benjamin Abramov, a fertility specialist, explains what this is in more detail.
In the UK, one in seven couples experience difficulty conceiving, so you might wonder whether you are one of them, particularly if you are aged between 30 and 39. Whilst female fertility does decrease with age, there are many other physical, mental, and emotional well-being aspects that play a vital role in fertility and conception. Dr Malini Uppal, a fertility specialist of the City Fertility clinic in central London, lists some of the key things that can affect your fertility and your ability to conceive.
