Gender Selection

What is Gender Selection?

Gender selection, or sex selection, is a fertility procedure used to choose the gender of a baby prior to conception. While the desire to choose a baby boy or a baby girl has probably been present throughout human history, it is only recently that the technology to do so has become clinically possible and available. With improvements in gender selection technology, demand for gender selection has also been growing steadily.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis with IVF

In gender selection using IVF and PGD, embryos are created from the couple's eggs and sperm. This process happens outside the body so that the embryologists can control embryos of which gender will eventually be used to establish a pregnancy.

On the third day after the sperm fertilize the eggs, when embryos have developed into 6 to 8 cells, one of the cells is removed from the embryo, and its chromosomal makeup is analyzed. The removal of the cell at this stage does not have a significant negative effect on the embryo's growth competency. This chromosomal analysis allows us to determine whether the embryo is male or female. Then, only the embryos of the desired gender are transferred to the uterus to establish a pregnancy.

PGD gender selection is the most reliable method for gender selection, approaching 100% accuracy (although, of course, there are always possibilities for technical errors).
