Can you select gender through IVF?
Also question is, can we get baby boy through IVF?
IVF 'increases the chance of having a baby boy' Women using IVF to get pregnant should be aware that they will be more likely to have a boy than a girl, say experts. But another assisted reproduction technique called ICSI, which singles out the sperm that will fertilise the IVF egg, makes a girl more likely.
Consequently, can you decide the gender of your baby?
To determine sex, PGD involves examining an embryo taken from the uterus and replacing only the embryo of the desired sex. In CVS, chromosomes of the fetus are analyzed in early pregnancy. There are reports that some people who find out they have an unwanted gender through this technique end up asking for an abortion.
Gender selection (also called sex selection) is a medical technique used by prospective parents who wish to choose the sex of their offspring. Gender selection is performed through sperm separation or genetic testing. The embryos with the desired sex are then implanted into the woman's uterus.
