Why Perform Miscarriage Genetic Testing?
A miscarriage can be devastating. You are left to grieve and wonder why. Your pain and fear can make it more difficult to move ahead, and you want answers.
The results obtained from chromosome testing after a miscarriage can reduce your emotional burden and improve your chances of a future successful pregnancy. If genetic testing identifies a chromosomal abnormality as the cause, your chances of recurrence are low. Genetic testing can save your provider from performing costly medical work-up to determine the cause of miscarriage.
