Sex selection is a procedure that can be done during an In Vitro Fertilization cycle for patients who wish to choose the sex of their child. A typical IVF cycle is made up of 4 stages: follicle stimulation with hormone injections, egg retrieval, fertilization of eggs in an IVF dish, and transfer of one or more embryos to the uterus. The sex selection step occurs after fertilization and before transfer. The technique used to identify embryo is called Preimplantation Genetic Technologies – Aneuploidy (PGT-A, previously called PGS) Unlike sperm sorting which does not reliably identify the sex of the embryo, PGT-A has been investigated and demonstrated to be highly effective with an accuracy rate of 99%.
