Modern medicine every day finds the new ways to the deepest parts of the human body, getting more and more information about human genes, their mutations, leading to congenital pathologies and possible infertility. The true causes of male and female infertility of "unclear" origin every year become more obvious and easily identifiable thanks to the latest developments in the field of reproduction and genetics. Accurate and detailed diagnosis is the key to successful treatment, whatever the diagnosis.
Genetic centre iVF Riga, thanks to the innovative achievements in the field of reproduction and genetics, has the opportunity to provide an in-depth examination for couples with infertility, miscarriage, and unsuccessful IVF attempts.

At Genetic centre iVF Riga, patients consult geneticists Dr. Liene Kornejeva and Dr. Ieva Grinfelde.

During the consultation, a geneticist collects anamnesis and can offer an expert opinion regarding the risk of passing down genetic disorders to the next generations, determine the possible causes of infertility and offer possible solutions; prescribes karyotyping (genetic blood tests) to future parents. According to the results, together with the patient geneticist discusses and selects an appropriate treatment strategy to reduce the risks or impact of genetic infertility causes for the purpose of conception and having a healthy child. Doctor issues an opinion on the need for preimplantation testing (PGT) indicating the test method, which is most relevant in the case of a particular pair.
