Gender Selection or Family Balancing

Many of Us Know Someone Who Would Desperately Like to Have a Girl or a Boy

Perhaps a couple already has several children of one gender and would like to have another child, but would only consider doing so if the 50/50 odds could be shifted in favor of the other gender. This is sometimes referred to as “family balancing”. Or, perhaps a couple is seeking infertility treatment, already has one child, and would prefer that the next child is the opposite gender. This is quite common nowadays as families are smaller in size. Another couple may want to avoid passing one of the more than 500 gender-linked genetic diseases to their child, so they might consider using PGT for gender selection.

PGT and IVF for Gender Selection

Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) coupled with IVF can screen your embryos for chromosomal abnormalities that can increase your chances of getting pregnant and also assist in gender selection. Schedule a consultation to learn more.
