A total of 33 participants in the current study who were BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and were of reproductive age and had previously undergone genetic counseling viewed a tutorial regarding PGD. The majority of individuals indicated that they preferred to be briefly informed of the availability of information regarding preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and to receive written materials concerning PGD, but with the option of deferring detailed discussion if they already believed themselves to be overloaded or perceived that PGD was not immediately relevant to their risk management and/or childbearing plans. Providers offering cancer genetic testing can consider indicating that PGD information is available, while attending to the patients' level of interest and ability to absorb information.
