What We Do

Gender Selection

and Family Balancing

Family Balancing is the term for gender selection done for the purposes of achieving a more balanced representation of both genders in a family.

For example, if a couple has a son and desires a daughter, or there is an otherwise unequal representation of both genders among current siblings, the couple would be appropriate candidates for Family Balancing at CRH.

In these cases, gender can be selected by utilizing technology called Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), a technology that involves testing the chromosomal make-up of an embryo. PGD must be done in conjunction with IVF.

Once the test results are known, only the embryos of the desired gender are returned to the patient’s uterus.

The steps and procedures for gender selection are as follows:

  • ­1. Several eggs are extracted from the mother by our doctors, sperm is supplied by the father.

  • ­2. The father's sperm is used to fertilize the mother's eggs in our lab.

  • ­3. After 3 days, several 8-cell embryos will have developed.

  • ­4. Our doctor-scientist specialists examine the genetic makeup of the embryos, screening for both genetic diseases and desired gender.

  • ­5.Healthy embryos of the gender you desire are implanted in the mother.

  • ­6.Any additional healthy embryos may be cryo-frozen for future use.

  • ­7.Gestation and birth take place as normal.

  • More control of timing

More convenient than IVF

Some intended parents may choose embryo adoption for its speed and convenience

  • Fewer procedures than IVF
  • No surgical retrieval
  • Fewer medications

More cost-effective

Embryo adoption is a fraction of the cost of traditional adoption and less than the average cost of IVF

  • Lower cost than traditional adoption
  • Lower cost than most IVF options
  • Lower cost medications

Less waiting

The waiting period for embryo adoption can be shorter than that traditional adoption and often quicker than IVF

  • Shorter waiting times
  • Quicker than IVF
  • Fewer clinic visits

Genetic diversity

In some cases, intended parents may wish to have a child who doesn't share their genetic material for medical reasons or personal ones.

  • Avoid passing on a hereditary disease
  • Choice of genetic makeup
  • Increased potential for a healthy baby

High success rates

Compared to IVF with you own eggs and sperm, using donated embryos often has a similar or higher success rate

  • Typically better outcomes
