Although gender selection a highly controversial procedure; it is among the world’s most popular and requested IVF treatments. Many parents seek gender selection to determine the sex of their unborn child for a variety of reasons. Some couples desire to bear and raise children of preferred gender to achieve family balance, which is the most ethically-questioned aspect of gender selection.
On the other hand, the advent of advanced technology has raised gender selection to prominence, especially when performing the treatment to avoid genetic disorders.
Traveling abroad for assisted reproduction treatments has been on the rise lately, primarily because of the high cost of IVF treatments in Western world. Among the popular IVF destinations in Asia is, Thailand, attracting myriads of international infertility patients particularly from the US and the UK.
IVF in Thailand offers economic medical services compatible with top medical standards, catering to patients from around the world. The demand for gender selection in Thailand has been steadily increasing due to the advanced medical technology that progressed during the last couple of years.
IVF doctors in Thailand have been improving the ability to genetically evaluate embryos before transfer into the uterus via a method known as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
Traveling for IVF treatment overseas can be very stressful and emotionally-demanding. Reward yourself by visiting one of the most spectacular spots in Thailand: Waterfalls, Ko Samui.
Feast your senses on two astoundingly beautiful waterfalls, Na Muang 1 and Na Muang 2, located 10 KM south of Nathon at Ban Thurian. Na Muang 2 is higher than its sister waterfall. But you can walk up to either of them-- or if you fancy something more on the adventurous side, take an elephant trek.
The cost of gender selection is set depending on the treatment method chosen by your IVF doctor, the female’s medical condition and the embryo of the donor.
For example, the PGD method used in gender selection is not covered by most medical insurance plans in the US. The cost of gender selection in Thailand can save you 70 per cent on the overall cost of your IVF treatment.
