Don Naidoo - April 11

hi, from South Africa desperately need your advice. I'm 27 DH is 30, after 2 icsi attempts one assisted hatching (both failed) we did serum fish which we learnt DH has Heterozygous pericentric inversion of chromosome 1, with increased length of heterochromatic region. 46XY,1qh+(1) (p36.13;q25.3). We have read our options cos no one bothers to interpret results here, 1st, send semen for FISH, or do PGD on frozen embryos, or transfer frozen embryos and hope for the best as said by our doc. What do you think is the way forward from here? PLEASE HELP. More importantly is it even possible to have a baby with this chromosome inversion? Thanx.

I'd really like to help you, but your questions are outside my area of expertise. Sorry. You need a true reproductive genetist or counselor to answer your questions. I would suggest you contact Reproductive Genetics Institute in Chicago (http://www.reproductivegenetics.com). They have affiliates worlwide and may work with a clinic closer to you than the US. I'm sure they can help interpret your test results. Try the "Second Opinion" link on their "Contact Us" menu. Best of luck.
