    Is it possible to choose the sex of the baby with PGD IVF in Spain?

    Today it is possible to choose the sex of a baby, but is the sex selection 100% accurate?

    Using techniques involving PGD IVF, it is 99.9%. All other methods of influencing sex have not been found to be useful. Fertility clinics in Spain have been using these techniques for a number of years with a very high success rate.

    Couples who have had one or more children of one sex can choose the opposite sex of their next baby.

    Can we choose the embryo with the right chromosome?

    Women undergo IVF ICSI with egg retrieval and fertilisation with their male partner’s sperm. The embryos develop and divide over a period of 3 days. A single cell is then removed and sent for chromosome analysis.

    The embryos of the chosen sex are transferred to the uterus 2 days later. Fertility clinics in Spain use a technique called aCGH, which allows a complete chromosomal analysis.

    This ensures that an embryo with a full complement of chromosomes of the correct sex is transferred into the patient.

    Patients who have already had 2 or 3 children of the same sex always wonder whether it is still possible to have a child of the opposite sex. 23 patients have recently undergone sex selection. Almost all the couples had an embryo of the appropriate sex transferred into the uterus.

    Only 3 of the 23 couples did not have an embryo of the right sex in women of all ages. 80% of the transfers resulted in the implantation of at least one embryo, with a pregnancy rate of 50%.


    Another surprising fact was the choice of preferred sex. When Spanish clinics started offering this service, most couples would prefer a boy. This is the case in most countries in the world. However, in some patients, among Caucasian couples, over 90% of couples want a female child.
