Hi,

415 PSTK+ and 21 PSTK+ are some of the common chromosomal abnormalities associated with increased recurrent pregnancy loss as well as fetal abnormalities resulting in various types of diseases in the baby or even in later life. Hence, it is not advisable for these couples (More so, because both of you are having 21PSTK+ and your husband also having 15PSTK+ chromosome) to be pregnant. Also, the risk is even more with IVF procedure.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Satnarain Bansal, General & Family Physician
