Family Balancing

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis for Family Balancing and Gender Selection

Using PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) and combining this with in vitro fertilization, we are able to determine with nearly 100% accuracy the sex of the embryo. Only an embryo of the desired sex, either male or female, is transferred back into the womb. This is typically done for family balancing – providing couples who only have boys or only girls an increased chance of having a child of another sex in the family.
