Preimplantation genetic diagnosis and sex selection


This method provides a100% success rate for all you need do is present your sperm and egg of the woman for in vitro fertilisation after which the embryo would be grown in culture until it is possible to obtain a single cell called blastomere, from a blastocyst. This cell will then be examined to determine its sex. If more than one embryo is fertilised and grown then you only select the sex that you wish to grow and then implant them. Pure and simple and 100%. But it sounds so simple on paper but very difficult to obtain in reality. Firstly you will need a very well qualified embryologist since the techniques are high quality and also very sophisticated using in vitro fertilisation laboratories found only in advanced countries. Hence this method cannot be easily available to all and sundry.
