What is a Genetic Compatibility Test for?

Most of the healthy population presents some recessive mutation in their genes, but does not manifest it. This is called being a carrier. If our partner presents this same mutation, there is a 25% chance that our child will manifest it, and a 50% chance that he or she will become a carrier. Although rare, recessive diseases are usually severe and incurable. With the genetic compatibility test, we reduce the chances of transmitting diseases to our offspring.

What is Progesterone used for?

Progesterone is one of the hormones responsible for maintaining pregnancy. The levels of this hormone increase after ovulation, in order to make the endometrium receptive so that the embryo can implant in it. In the event that this does not happen, the levels of progesterone decrease to regenerate in the next menstrual cycle. During fertility treatment, it is necessary to administer progesterone through medication to help the patient in the early stages of pregnancy and avoid risky situations.
