More and more women are using gender selection technology in conjunction with IVF to choose the sex of their babies. This is known as Family Balancing. Depending on the sex of children presently in a family, parents can select the gender of their next planned baby. Family Balancing is available to New Hope Fertility patients by using PGS/NGS testing of embryos as the culture and develop in vitro. Resulting embryos are closely monitored by our skilled embryologist using state-of-the-art EmbryoScope technology.
Gender selection is socially acceptable and gaining in popularity. No longer is gender selection stigmatized as a social engineering tool used to make designer babies. Gender identification and selection technology can easily help you choose the sex of your baby. PGS/NGS technology in conjunction with IVF will help you choose the sex of your baby with 99% accuracy
You can balance the sexes of your future family with genetic testing technology.
Gender selection is a beneficial by-product of genetic testing for abnormalities in embryos culturing in vitro. Through genetic testing, the sex of each embryo is identifiable.
The chromosomes of a sperm determine an embryo’s gender.
Genetic testing is performed in conjunction with IVF in a controlled laboratory setting. Three days after fertilization of the patient’s eggs in vitro, cells are removed from each of the embryos developing.
The benefits of genetic testing conjunction with IVF include:
Dr. Zhang recommends universal blastocyst embryo screening for his patients because the procedure can help increase their chances of a pregnancy by 30 percent.
State-of-the-art embryo biopsy techniques and genetics technologies have proven to increase IVF pregnancy rates. Through the medical marvel of PGS/NGS in conjunction with IVF, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities can be detected in embryos.
As a woman advances in age, the chance for chromosomal abnormalities in embryos increases. Low quality embryos result in:
