Reproductive Genetics :


Nowadays, a lot of infertility issues are observed among couples. And these issues keep on increasing as the age of the mother increases. So, a lot of solutions for this problem are brought out to help couples to start their families. PGS is also one of the treatments that are provided by Dr. C. S Manjunath.

PGS – Preimplantation Genetic Screening

This is a genetic test that is performed to detect chromosome abnormalities which are sometimes the reason for the miscarriage among women during their pregnancy and if sometimes baby takes birth then the baby could possibly have some abnormalities. To get rid of these situations, this test is recommended by Dr. C. S Manjunath to the couples with these situations:

  • If the age of women is above 35 years.
  • If a couple is facing several miscarriages.
  • If last pregnancy of couple led to a chromosome abnormality.
  • If the concentration of sperm is low.

PESA – Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration

This is a test that is performed to collect sperm from the body of man when there is a low concentration of sperm due to obstruction or due to some other reason. In this case, sperm is collected from epididymis by inserting a needle through the skin.

TESA – Testicular/Epididymal Sperm Aspiration or Extraction

If sperm is not found in epididymis then TESA test is performed to collect sperm from testicle with the help of needle by giving anesthesia to the person.
