How is Gender Determined?
At the time of conception, the sex of a baby is determined by the sex chromosome carried inside the sperm that fertilizes the woman’s egg.
How does Gender Selections work?
We offer our patients two options for gender enhancement. First is Sperm Separation Technique and second is PGD Technique.
We understand what you are going through
& we always here to help!
Have you ever wondered if there was a way to influence the gender of your next child? We offer a laboratory procedure that can increase the odds of producing a male or female child at an affordable cost.
Our website contains information on our process, other gender selection methods, costs, forms to get started, and contact information to submit any questions you may have about our services.
There is a rapidly increasing demand for gender selection services in the U.S. People are more informed about technology and what can be achieved through science. Since gender selection is possible, there is a demand for the service. There are many reasons for deciding to use a gender selection service. Some of these reasons include: Family Balancing or the process of bringing the number of children of each gender in one family closer to equal; Genetic Diseases/Abnormalities avoidance can be achieved by utilizing gender selection processes; and personal preferences.
You should chose this option with realistic expectations. Your desire for a healthy new baby of any gender should outweigh your desire for only a baby of a certain gender. We will insure that every measure is taken to maximize your chance of having a baby of the gender you desire. And while it is our goal to accomplish this for each case, it is just not statistically practical or achievable.
We feel that complete honesty will lead to the best outcome for everyone, and we will not attempt to “sell” you on something not based on the truth. Utilizing these types of services is a personal decision. We wish you the best in your journey to conceive a son or daughter.
Why use gender selection?
Sometimes couples use gender selection to help prevent serious genetic diseases and chromosomal disorders that are gender-specific. For example, sex-linked diseases like muscular dystrophy and hemophilia that are inherited via the mother will only affect male offspring. In addition, conditions like Fragile X or autism often present more severely in one gender than in the other.
Other times, prospective parents turn to sex selection when they have a strong desire to complete or “balance” their family according to their own personal plans. There are also cases where a couple feels a psychological need to have a child of a certain gender, either because they feel better equipped to raise a child of that gender or because they lost a child previously.
Scientific Understanding of Gender Selection
It has been known for many years that the gender of a pregnancy is determined by the sex chromosome carried by the sperm.
Armed with this knowledge, science initially worked to allow for an accurate method of safely separating sperm to allow the majority of those sperm capable of producing the desired gender (“X” sperm or “Y” sperm) to be exposed to the female egg (oocyte).
Because no sperm separation method thus far developed has produced the high level of sperm separation “X” (for female) and “Y” (for male) needed to provide gender outcome success levels greater than 90%, further work to perfect the gender selection process is being studied.
