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.
