Gender Selection, Family Balancing

Gender selection has been made possible by advances in assisted reproductive technologies.  Medical science constantly strives to make peoples’ lives better and more fulfilled.  Many couples choose family balancing because they want to experience the joy of raising children of both genders.

We are specialists in helping people achieve their dreams of balanced families.  We use the most advanced method (IVF with PGD) to accurately predict the gender (95% accuracy) of a child prior to implantation in the uterus. Only embryos of the selected gender are transferred into the uterus.

Over 60% of patients who undergo IVF with gender selection deliver a live baby after an embryo transfer.

The IVF/PGD Process (More information about PGD)

  • Patients are administered hormones to promote multiple egg development in the ovaries.  Growth is monitored by ultrasound and blood tests.
  • Eggs are extracted through the vagina under anesthesia.
  • Embryos are created in the laboratory by mixing the partners’ eggs and sperm.
  • The embryos are transferred to incubators where they develop.
  • Resultant embryos are biopsied with the removal of 1 cell of 8 on the 3rd day in culture.  The cell is analyzed for gender and chromosomal makeup including screening for one or more of hundreds of inherited disorders; if indicated.  
  • Two days after, embryos of known gender and genetic makeup are implanted in the uterus.
  • A blood pregnancy test is obtained 10 days later.

We have helped many couples achieve the family of their dreams. See our International Patients section. We can help you.
