Elective Gender Selection

Elective gender selection makes family balancing possible

Gender Selection in NYCWe perform elective gender selection at our New York fertility center for people who need gender selection for medical reasons and for those who are seeking to balance their family. Gender selection, or family balancing, is something that people have tried to achieve for centuries through various methods; most of these practices did not work. Today’s fertility treatments use precise, reliable methods to allow physicians to help families who are seeking a child of a certain sex.

At our New York fertility center, we perform PGS for elective gender selection

At our New York fertility center, we perform PGS, or preimplantation genetic screening, combined with IVF, for people who choose elective gender selection because this method is virtually 100% accurate.

PGS is a testing procedure that we conduct in our state-of-the-art laboratory to determine whether any random chromosomal abnormalities exist in the embryos. This procedure also allows us to determine which embryos are male and which are female by locating the X and Y chromosomes that determine the baby’s sex.

Once the elective gender selection takes place, the embryo can be transferred to the mother or carrier.

Our New York fertility center helps you create the family you desire

At our New York fertility center, we work with people in many different situations to create families. Elective gender selection that allows you to balance your family is one way we can help. We do our best not to interfere with the natural gender selection, which is 50% females and 50% males.

In order to help maintain this natural balance, we log all elective gender selection requests for males and females each year, and we make every attempt to maintain this 50/50 ratio.

Our goal is to help you have the family you desire, and we offer many fertility services to help you reach your goal. To learn more about our New York fertility center, contact us for an appointment.
