Genetic screening is recommended for ALL women of reproductive age.
Genetic diseases like Cystic Fibrosis and Spinal Muscular Atrophy are more common than you think. In fact, 1 in 16 individuals carry a genetic mutation for one of these disorders. There are usually no health problems associated with being a carrier and most carriers do not have a family history of the disease.
Texas Fertility Center is teaming up with Good Start Genetics to offer an open genetic testing day to women 18-45 years of age, and their partners (male partners can be older that 45). We will be offering comprehensive mutation screening for the most prevalent and serious disorders. These carrier-screening tests will provide you with information about your reproductive risk, which may be used to minimize the chance of having a child with a particular genetic disease.
Space is limited and registration is required.
To request a registration form and to reserve your designated time slot, please register below with Good Start Genetics. All insurance plans will be accepted, except for Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare. All costs not covered by insurance plans will be covered by a private donation.
