A couple may already have children, but they may want to choose the sex of their next child for reasons offamily balance. Some couples only want to have one child and they may want to choose the sex of that child.

On the other hand, a couple may want to opt for sex selection in order to prevent genetic diseases. Choosing the sex of your child can potentially reduce the likelihood of him or her suffering from a genetic disease. Here in Cyprus, we can determine the sex of an embryo even before it is implanted in the uterus.

Even if you have no infertility problems and are able to conceive naturally on your own, sex selection will require you to undergo an infertility test. This will enable our specialists to identify the treatment protocol best suited to you. This is the most important step beforeundergoing IVF treatment in Cyprus.

Information required:

  • Patient’s age ;
  • History of conception;
  • The patient’s hormone levels should be assessed on the second or third day of menstruation and an ultrasound scan should be carried out to determine the number of antral follicles;
  • Analysis of the male partner’s sperm.

After assessment in Cyprus, we will be able to draw up a suitable treatment protocol to optimise the results of your IVF with sex selection.

There are a number of advantages to having PGD IVF treatment in Northern Cyprus,

  • If patients wish to undergo one of the PGT-A and NGS tests, we are able to see the sex of the embryos with these tests and can explain to the patient how many healthy male and female embryos are available. Patients can then choose the sex of any healthy embryo, which is permitted under the IVF regulations of the Northern Cyprus Department of Health.
  • We are permitted to carry out the IVF protocol for women up to the age of 55(in most EU countries IVF is permitted up to the age of 46).
  • We are also permitted to carry out embryo transfers of up to 3. The number of embryos to be transferred is determined jointly by the patient and our doctor.
  • Couples do not have to be married to receive IVF treatment.
  • Prices for IVF treatment are very competitive compared with those in Europe, the United States and Canada.
  • As an island in the Mediterranean Sea, Northern Cyprus is surrounded by many beautiful coastlines, has 20 sandy beaches and over 300 days of sunshine a year.

Sex selection methods

There are two distinct methods of sex selection at fertility clinics in Cyprus:

MicroSort Sperm Sorting

MicroSort is a patented technology that allows sperm to be sorted.

The X chromosome is responsible for procreation of the female gender and the Y chromosome for procreation of the male gender.

MicroSort is a mechanical procedure that separates the sperm into two distinct compartments: those carrying X and those carrying Y. Once the MicroSort procedure has been completed, the high-qualitysperm sample is used in the IVF cycle to produce embryos of the desired sex.

This method has an accuracy of around 75% for male sex selection and around 90% for female sex selection.

One of the advantages of MicroSort technology is that it allows us to offer sex selection with non-invasive IUI cycles. IUI cycles require much gentler medication regimes and do not require any surgical procedures. The ability to choose your baby’s sex without any invasive procedures is a good option for most couples.

However, it should be borne in mind that MicroSort IUI is best suited to younger couples in their twenties and that the overall success rate of pregnancies with IUI cycles will be around 25%. It is an inexpensive and non-invasive option, but its success rates will not be as high as IVF treatment options.

Cost of sex selection in Cyprus

MicroSort with IUI

This is the least invasive sex selection option for young, fertile couples who wish to specify the sex of their next child for family balance purposes. MicroSort sperm sorting technology is combined withintrauterine insemination (IUI ) to help couples conceive a child of the desired gender.

The price of MicroSort with IUI in Cyprus is €3,000.

MicroSort with IVF

With this treatment option, the sperm sorting process is always the same. The sperm sample is sorted into X and Y carrier cells. In this case, as patients undergo an IVF cycle, mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries to be fertilised in the laboratory with the sorted sperm sample.

The price of MicroSort with IVF in Cyprus is 4200 euros.

MicroSort with IVF and PGD

MicroSort with IVF / PGD is the treatment option we recommend for patients in the older age brackets. The ageing oocyte can experience problems including mitochondrial dysfunction, aneuploidy and epigenetic changes. To ensure that your embryos do not suffer from chromosomal aneuploidy (abnormality), it is recommended that patients over the age of 30 undergo PGD screening.

The price of MicroSort with IVF in Cyprus is €6,200.

Success of IVF with sex selection in Cyprus

Success is highly dependent on the patient’s age, ovarian function and the analysis of the male partner’s sperm. The higher the age, the lower the success of any form of fertility treatment.

Consequently, the success rate for patients under the age of 35 is considerably higher than for patients of a more advanced biological age.
