I also have used PGD
in our fertility treatments, in fact it was the reason we underwent ivf, to prevent a genetic condition my husband has, and has a 50/50 chance of passing on to our children. We have one unaffected daughter as a result, we have tried one frozen and 3 fresh cycles trying to have another child, with no success. We are currently "re-grouping" trying to make our next decision. I am interested in helping you but would like some more information on your ideas/direction your paper is going. PM me anytime!
