More and more couples have failed the In Vitro Fertilisation. It is said that about 25 per cent of the couples have failed IVF. One of the reasons IVF has such a poor performance rate is chromosomal abnormalities. Well, a new technique — Comparative Genomic Hybridisation or CGH – replaces IVF in infertility treatment.

Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique is considered a milestone in the treatment of infertility. Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique is a screening method that involves selecting the right eggs, which are chromosomally normal. The CGH is a technique that helps the doctors to examine the eggs for any chromosomal abnormalities and choose the best one.  About half of the eggs in younger women and about 75 per cent of older women above 35 years have chromosomally abnormal eggs.

The great news is that Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique has come successful and baby Oliver has become the fist kid to be born out of this technique. Baby Oliver was born to a 41-year-old woman in Britain’s CARE institute. The woman had failed In Vitro Fertilisation 13 times and at last the doctors had performed Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique, which gave the results.

Researchers and Doctors say that Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique is a milestone in infertility treatment. Earlier doctors had no knowledge if the embryos were from defective eggs. This new Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique helps in detecting the defects, which means that the chances of getting pregnant have increased. 

With an increase in infertility among couples, this new Comparative Genomic Hybridisation technique is going to be a blessing.
