One of the most commonly used techniques by our professionals is the gender selection technique. Do you want to learn more about this treatment? You are at the right place!
The goal of gender selection is to manage one of the earliest stages of fertilization with the purpose of being able to choose the sex. There are three stages in assisted reproduction that can be influenced: the pre-embryonic, the post-embryonic and the post-conception stage.
PGD Labs, a gender selection clinic
At our clinic we perform one of the most effective post-embryonic techniques: PGD – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis –, a treatment that has been extensively developed, which means that it is safe to use and reliable. What are the objectives of this treatment?
- Analyze the embryo’s chromosomes and discard those that have chromosomal anomalies.
- Identify a specific disease, such as cystic fibrosis. This is accomplished through a painstaking analysis of DNA inside the cells.
- Choose the desired gender. Patients may have two clear reasons to pick their baby’s gender: either because some diseases are transmitted genetically and are gender-based, or because they are looking to form a balanced family.
- Transfer selected embryos to the uterus to achieve the pregnancy via in vitro fertilization.
How is the PGD treatment performed?
- 1. This treatment is performed after the second stage of in vitro fertilization. The fertilized egg is cultured for approximately one week, until it reaches the blastocyst stage.
- 2. A small cell sample is extracted from the pre-placenta using a laser and a microscopic glass needle.
- 3. The DNA is analyzed to identify a specific disease – especially diseases transmitted to males through the mother.
- 4. The healthy embryo is transferred to the uterus during the following stage of in vitro fertilization.
