Gender Selection

Gender selection has become a popular option for couples desiring to choose the sex of their children. HRC Fertility offers gender selection, sometimes referred to as "family balancing," at our California gender selection clinics in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County. Gender selection is often used to reduce the possibility of transmitting sex-linked genetic diseases to an offspring with "at risk" couples. Other couples want family balancing in order to experience the joy of raising both a boy and girl. As opposed to other gender selection methods for choosing the sex of your baby, PGD is 99.9% reliable. For additional information, please visit

Gender Selection and Genetic Disease

Gender selection can help prevent the transmission of certain genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, Tay Sachs, Huntington's disease or sickle cell disease. Some of these genetic diseases are carried on the X or Y chromosome and are termed "sex-linked" genetic diseases. The genetic structure XX yields a female child while the XY arrangement produces a male.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) for Sex Selection

Gender selection using Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) has become a popular option for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) that desire to choose the sex of their child. While the primary indication for the screening is to increase the likelihood of pregnancy by transferring embryos with the correct number of chromosomes, PGS also provides couples with the ability to choose the gender of their baby.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) for Gender-Related Disease Prevention

In addition to gender selection with PGS, Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) can identify particular genetic diseases and assist "at risk" couples in reducing the possibility of transmitting a sex-linked genetic diseases to their child. PGD is conducted during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle, and gender selection rates approach 100 percent.

At this time Gender Selection is not available using Microsort.
