My husband and I got married late in our age. I was 36 years old and he was 49 we both did not have any children from previous relationships. We had tried IVF in California, USA that was not successful and very financially draining and caused us financial hardship. Due to my age and with one ovary the cost for medication was outrageous. We had to wait a couple years to save for another try. We searched the internet and came across VisitandCare.com. There were several options that they sent to us but staff that we spoke with at LIV was very genuine and helpful. Why we selected LIV fertility clinic Dr. Stetson was very patient with us and took the time to explain the positives and the negatives about our journey. Alonso was our coordinator and was always available by email or phone. He had a great personality and put us at ease if we had any type of concerns. Overall I give LIV Fertility Clinic five stars for top tier medical advice, timely treatment, professionalism and most importantly, for delivering results. Thank you to science and love we had 2 beautiful twins (boy, girl). First impressions: the front staff of the office is warm and inviting. They were very professional and courteous. Medical care/advice: My medical team was very responsive. They went above and beyond to address all of my concerns during treatment. Karla the embryologist gave us daily updates on our embryos. Cost: The investment of time, emotion and taxation on my body was worth every penny. They were affordable for our budget. Now that I am 47 and my husband is 60 we can relax and give our full attention to our little ones that we cherish so much. Thank you Dr. Steton, Dr. Perez and LIV staff.

Tijuana Fertility Clinic Verified

Tijuana Fertility Clinic is made up of a qualified medical team and IVF professionals who offer highly specialized areas in the study diagnosis and treatment of infertility for males and females.

Due to my problems with ectopic pregnancy and having one fallopian tube left that was blocked, my only option to conceive a child was through IVF only. I was losing hope and after my first consultation with Dr. Amezquita it gave me a positive feeling that I will have success in conceiving a child. My husband and I can’t afford to go with the process of IVF in San Diego, CA so I researched a lot of clinics and hospital in Mexico to find out who could help us. Then I found Tijuana Fertility Clinic and from the initial conversation that I had with Gisela (Office Coordinator) by email, she was well-detailed with the pricing and the process of the IVF. She was always quick in responding to all my questions because I worry with my body a lot of times. They gave us a positive response from the very first conversation that’s what made us decide to choose this clinic. From the clinic staffs, clinic cleanliness through the caring doctor and the caring nurses, we have no regrets go to this clinic to conceive our first child! I’m currently 7 weeks! Dr. Amezquita spoke fluent in English and was very knowledgeable when it comes to women reproductive system. He knows more than I do when it comes to women anatomy. Very impressive doctor! The front desk was also very nice and always smiling when we arrive to our appointment. And if we had trouble crossing the border because of traffic, we call the clinic and they were always flexible and understanding since we were traveling from San Diego. We highly recommend for women who are seeking to do an IVF. We love this clinic and we will go back for our 2nd child later! Thank you to Dr. Amezquita and whole staff for helping us conceive our first baby!

I can't recommend Imer Reproduccion Humana enough. For the past three years my wife and I have been trying to have a child to no avail. Needless to say, without fertility treatments our chances of having a child were slim. On the US side the prices for fertility were more than I could afford. After further research I found Imer fertility center in Tijuana. From the very beginning the staff was very professional, explaining in detail the process my wife and I would go through. After setting up an initial appointment I saw the fertility center and met the staff. I was pleased to see how clean the facility is and how courteous the people are, especially our Dr. Sandra Y. Orendain who could communicate in English and Spanish and genuinely seemed to love her job and helping couples. Once we had ample information, my wife and I proceeded with treatment. From the moment treatment began patience was a requirement. Fertility treatments greatly increased our odds to conceive but it wasn't 100% guaranteed. The facility center is in Tijuana which meant going back and forth from the US to Mexico over and over. Everything tack together would get stressful which is where patience and resolve come in but my wife an I were determined to see it through After the fertility treatments were over, we were thrilled beyond belief to hear my wife was pregnant. I can't describe how happy we were to see our baby for the first time in the ultrasound. My life now consist of cleaning 6 dirty diapers minimum a day, sleeping 2 to 6 hours a night and I couldn't be happier. We have a beautiful baby boy and I can't thank Dr Sandra and her staff enough for our little miracle. I highly recommend to anyone having difficulty conceiving children to set up a consultation and see for yourself. You'll be thankful you did in 9 months. With Love and endless thanks

What is IVF with Gender Selection?

Gender Selection, also known as sex selection or family balancing refers to the selection of an offspring's sex before implantation of the embryo into the womb via in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Some couples prefer to choose the gender of their offspring for a variety of reasons. A couple may opt for gender selection to avoid a “sex linked” genetic disease, such as Hemophilia. Other couples may desire to choose the sex of their baby to balance with the gender of their already existent offspring.

 

There are two methods of gender selection used today, sperm sorting, also known as Microsort technology, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). Microsort is a method that enables the separation of X chromosome sperm from Y chromosome sperm, which then is used in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Flow cytometry, the technique used to analyze and sort spermatozoa, relies on the DNA difference between the X and the Y Chromosomes.

 

Before flow cytometric sorting is actually applied, semen is tagged with a fluorescent dye that binds to the DNA of each spermatozoon. The larger female X chromosome bearing more DNA than the male Y chromosome will absorb more dye than its Y chromosome counterpart, causing the sperm with the X chromosomes to shine more brightly than the sperm with the Y chromosomes. The flow cytometer will detect the difference in brightness between the X and Y chromosomes and separate them as they move through the machine.

 

PGD, also known as embryo screening and PGS (pre-implantation genetic screening), is the only other method of gender selection that has been proven effective. In the past, PGD was most commonly used for diagnosis of a genetic disease in early embryos prior to implantation and pregnancy. More recently it has been used for testing common chromosome abnormalities. IVF with PGD refers to embryos resulting from an in-vitro fertilization cycle that are genetically screened for X or Y chromosomes. The embryos of the desired sex are implanted.

 

Gender selection success rates for both methods vary. Scientists claim that sperm sorting success rates for girls are higher than for boys, while PGD is at least 95% effective for both genders.

 

Gender Selection Laws

Although gender selection is legal in many countries, it still remains a controversial issue all over the world. Some countries, such as the UK, Australia and Canada, only allow sex selection if the offspring is in danger of a sex-linked genetic disorder. However, in countries, such as India and China, determining the sex of a fetus prior to birth is illegal. Yet, despite the limited availability and expense of sex selection procedures, its popularity is growing. In countries where gender selection is legal, cost is still an issue. In the United States, IVF with PGD can cost up to $19,000USD, which is why many Americans find themselves seeking IVF in Mexico, and gender selection in Cyprus. Some European countries, such as Germany and Italy have banned embryo freezing, egg donation and even embryo screening for genetic diseases.

 

The cost of gender selection abroad has proved to be an inexpensive and legal alternative to many couples who can't afford the cost of IVF in their country. Gender selection in the Islamic world remains controversial as well. In the absence of a clear ruling on the issue of gender selection, some modern scholars have been compelled to accept gender selection as being religiously permissible.

 

However, in some countries where gender selection has turned into gender discrimination, gender selection technologies are completely banned. This leaves barren couples who want to have a child and as well as select the gender of that child with no other choice but to cross borders to Muslim or non-Muslim countries where it is legal to carry out such methods of assisted reproductive technology or forfeit their chance of having a child.

 

Cost of IVF with Gender Selection

Using PGD (pregenetic diagnosis) technology, or “sperm sorting” in order to identify male or female embryos, is an increasingly popular procedure for couples who want to ensure that any baby they have by assisted reproduction will be of a particular gender. In the United States and, the total cost of IVF with gender selection is generally $20,000 – $25 000. At popular VisitandCare.com “fertility destinations”, the cost starts at $8,750.
