Selecting the baby’s Gender: is it possible to select the gender of a baby with the IVF treatment?

 

When it comes to finding out the gender of your baby it is a very exciting process that which color will you see when you will cut the cake or pop the balloon. However, now you can choose the gender of your baby with the IVF treatment.

How does this process work?

If you are getting the treatment from the IVF fertility doctor in India you can also ask the doctor to guide you about this procedure. There are two ways of performing this method sperm spotting and IVF with preimplantation genetic testing (IVF-PGT).

 

IVF-PGT: This method takes 10 days of daily ovarian stimulation so that the eggs can get mature. Then the eggs are retrieved by a small needle through the back of the vagina into the ovaries. At this time, the ultrasound is being performed to check the entire process. Then the eggs are added with sperm for fertilization. After 6 days when the embryo is developed, approximately 5 cells are removed from the outer embryo. Then the embryo is frozen while the chromosome testing is done on the removed cells.

 

Sperm Spotting: It takes advantage of larger X(female chromosome) over the Y chromosome (male). This process makes it easier to have a girl. A sample of the sperm is collected and it is kept under the fluorescent dye and it is attached to the DNA which glows under laser light. The sperm is sent through a narrow tube and then placed in a woman’s uterus.
