These are all old wives’ tales and should not be taken seriously. If you use this method to select your baby DO NOT come after us if it is wrong, we are just presenting the information.
- In-vitro fertilization (IVF) (Required for PGD)
- Laser cut at the zona pellucida
- Cells are studied by embryologist
- Embryos of the desired sex (and with no defects) are then implanted back into the mother
If efforts in selecting the sex of the baby have always been a part of reproduction, then do medical advancements make these options morally wrong?
