Gender Selection in Cancun

IVF Cancun gender selection is a safe and effective method to plan a family or to avoid the inheritance of genetic diseases.

Gender selection is carried out by either analyzing the gender chromosomes of healthy embryos or using sperm sample that is more concentrated in X or Y chromosomes.

Several eggs are extracted from the mother by fertility specialist in Cancun; sperm is then supplied by the father. The father’s sperm is used to fertilize the mother’s eggs in the lab.  

After 3 days, several 8-cell embryos will have developed. IVF doctors examine the genetic makeup of the embryos, screening for both genetic diseases and desired gender.

Healthy embryos of the gender of your choice are then implanted in the uterus. Any additional healthy embryos maybe cryo-frozen for future use.

There are different methods of performing gender selection in Mexico. Two of the most commonly used methods in gender selection are Microsort Mexico and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) Mexico.

PGD has higher pregnancy success rates in Mexico and is popularly used to determine genetic diseases. The embryos are screened for X and Y Chromosomes and only those of the desired gender are implanted.

Doctors in Cancun study the chromosomes of an embryo carefully to ensure that a diseased embryo is not re-implanted into the uterus.  

This IVF technique allows embryos to be tested for genetic-related disorders, prior to being implanted in the womb, giving the best chances to select the gender of your baby.
