The choice of having a boy or girl was first made possible for patients who suffered from sex-linked diseases that could harm their child. In more recent times, parents are choosing a certain gender to balance their families. The practice of preimplantation genetic embryo screening (PGS) or preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is used to determine the sex of the embryo with 99% accuracy. Make sure to discuss the options with your physician. And if you would like additional information on gender selection in Idaho Falls, Idaho, please contact Idaho Fertility Center at (208) 529-2019.
