it's a boy!
Learn more about having a baby boy,
including proven gender-selection methods.
For thousands of years, couples have tried to influence the gender of their future babies. Whether trying for a baby boy or girl, or their 1st child or 10th, whether fueled by social pressure or a personal desire, couples have used various techniques to outsmart Mother Nature.
Folklore flourishes even today about methods that will produce a male or female baby. Egyptian hieroglyphs dating back 4,000 years show that women of a “greenish” complexion were “certain to have boys”. Thus, men sought brides with olive complexions!
With 99.9% accuracy in predicting an embryo’s gender, PGD gives couples the best odds in determining their baby’s sex. But unlike MicroSort®, which is used prior to conception, PGD is performed after conception using IVF. This poses a moral or ethical dilemma for some couples because they’re creating embryos, some of which may not be used. They consequently have to decide what to do with the excess embryos. Other than this concern, PGD offers couples the best bet in selecting their future baby’s gender.
A relatively new reproductive technology, PGD allows couples to choose their baby’s sex by identifying male and female embryos conceived in a laboratory, prior to transfer to the woman’s uterus. PGD requires IVF, fertilization in a lab dish, along with a minor surgical procedure to remove eggs from her ovaries. After fertilization, specialists examine the 2-ay-old embryo for its sex chromosomes (XX or XY), and inserts one or several embryos of the selected sex into the woman’s uterus.
