Finding Out Before
The choice of having a boy or girl was first made possible for patients who suffer from sex-linked diseases that can harm their child. More recently, parents are choosing a certain gender to balance their families. The use of preimplantation genetic embryo screening (PGS) or preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) are used to determine the the sex of the embryo with 99% accuracy. Be sure to discuss the options with your physician.
