Genetic Counselling
clinique ovo has its own genetics department to help you with conception and pregnancy, as well as with general genetic problems.

Personal Genetic Testing

Did you know it is possible to perform your genetic tests at our clinic? Reliable and quick analyses are available to best meet your needs. Here is a list of tests that you can perform with us:

  • Karyotype;

  • Microdeletion of the Y chromosome;

  • Analysis for specific genetic conditions (X-Fragile Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, etc.);

  • Genetic panels according to origins (Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean, Ashkenazi Jews, etc.);

  • Fetal debris analysis in the context of a miscarriage;

  • And much more.

Extended Carrier Genetic Testing (customizable, up to 289 genes)

Carrier genetic testing can identify your genetic status (carrier or non-carrier) for so-called recessive and X-linked conditions, and reduce the risk of transmission to your future children. It may be recommended if there is a consanguinity link between you and your partner, if your family history is not well known or simply if you wish to have more reassurance to reduce your genetic risks in a preconception context.


Procedure for performing a genetic analysis:

  • If you already have a detailed prescription, contact the fertility department to schedule a sample*.
  • If you would like a genetic consultation beforehand to evaluate your needs, send your detailed medical prescription to:


Delays in obtaining genetic analysis results: maximum 21 days


*The prescribing physician is responsible for interpreting the results.

  • Support you in the evaluation of your family history;

  • Investigate the risk of transmitting a hereditary disease to a present or future pregnancy;

  • Guide you in the context of pre-implantation diagnosis.

We will always take the necessary time to support and guide you throughout your medical journey.
