IVF fertilization

Q: Me and my husband have beta thalassemia trait and have been offered ivf. I would like to know if it is permissable to get it tested before they implant the fetus.

A: Our understanding is that the woman will have to undress for this implant. Undressing before anyone is impermissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
