Molecular confirmation of a clinical diagnosis

Genital ambiguity (irregular development)

What do the Results mean?

Uncover the genetic causes for infertlity, take informed desicions, plan the way forward and achieve desired outcomes

What Can the Test Tell You?

In the planning stage, you can consider:

Artificial reproductive techniques such as IVF

Use of donor eggs or sperm

Alternate options such as adoption may be considered

Negative Result

A negative result indicates that no mutation or variation was found in the genes tested.
