Hi Chillout71 - the FISH test (nothing to do with recreational fishing ) is a sperm test that you do to make sure there are no abnormalities, etc. We enquired with Iakentro about checking the embryos for abnormalities... PGD - they remove a cell and examine it... however because it is an invasive test, ie disturbing the embryo, they will only do it if there is reason to suspect possibility of abnormalities occuring. DH had a previous partner who had miscarriages and lost twins, etc. So we want to make sure DHs sperm is ok. The FISH test had to be done through our Fertility Clinic. QFG in Bris do it. The test can't be done at a pathology lab like other sperm tests. For more info try googling: "FISH test sperm". It is basically a male infertility test and is useful particularly if you are doing ICSI.
