Some chromosomal and genetic alterations are not compatible with the evolution of pregnancy and therefore cause abortions, especially in the first months of gestation.
In order to avoid pregnancy loss due to genetic causes, it is best to carry out IVF with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and select embryos free of chromosomal alterations. Another option is to use gametes from donors, ova and/or sperm, depending on whether the genetic alterations come from the woman or the man.
If the woman or couple does not have the resources to go through these two reproductive options, their only option will be to assume the risks of a new natural pregnancy and make a prenatal genetic diagnosis to ensure whether the fetus is healthy or not.
