Dear professionals

My husband (Age 58) and I (Age 39) had 4 failed cycle of ICSI (1 with PGD- resulted in 4 xx (chromosomes) abnormal embryos). We have been told my eggs are likely to be of poor quality. My husband's semen analysis come back with motility 45% / abnormal forms 89% / agglutination 20%.
We are now considering to go for Egg Donation Program - ICSI/Sex Selection (wants a boy xy)
Our questions are:

1) In the first consultation, can you perform a detail semen analysis to check if there is any healthy y chromosomes in my husband's semen before we go ahead with the sex selection program (from the semen analysis above, what do you think?)

2) If everything is OK and we go ahead, do you have a sorting technique to split the x & y chromosomes before ICSI, so that our chances of having desired sex gender is increased?

3) We are likely to go for Egg Donation program, we are Chinese from UK and would like to know if you have any Chinese egg donors or egg donors with similar Chinese characteristics? If you have, how long is the waiting time?

4) Can you please let us know your current success rate with this type of treatment? (ICSI/Sex Selection - Egg Donation Program)

5) Cost: can you please let us know if you do a package deal for Egg Donation Program with ICSI/Sex selection? or any guarantee programs available?

6) We would like to schedule to come for an initial consultation in October (wk commencing 26th), any availability please? (any recommended hotels/accommodation?)

Many thanks in advance for your help
We look forward to hearing from you.

Dear CW – Welcome to HRC Fertility, Los Angeles. Our center has been assisting couples help build their families for over 25 years. We are one of the largest fertility providers in the United States with a state-of-the-art IVF laboratory consistently posting pregnancy rates in the top 10 national registry. We welcome you to take a virtual tour of our center at .

We look forward to assisting you through the process of gender selection with an egg donor. The most accurate and reliable method to choose the gender of your baby involves in-vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic screening. The resultant accuracy is approximately 99% and allows us to not only identify gender but also all other 22 pairs of chromosomes. AS a result of this the pregnancy rate when using egg donation is often about 60-70%. I would be happy to further discuss the procedure in detail, success rates, time requirements in Los Angeles via Skype or phone conference. If you would kindly orchestrate a mutually convenient time to speak with Nichole (nicholez@ Should you have any financial questions, please communicate with Jennifer (This email address is being protected from spambots.
