New Life Mexico - Gender Selection for Family Balancing

New Life Mexico is regarded as one of the most responsible fertility clinics in Mexico that offers PGD Gender Selection.


Determination of your desired gender before the implantation of the embryo is known as gender selection. In natural conception cycle, the probability of having a girl or a boy is equal and depends on the quality of the sperm. An egg has 22 chromosomes apart from the X chromosome, whereas the sperm accompanies a further 22 chromosomes with X or Y chromosome. The result is a boy or a girl when the sperm fertilizes the egg with Y chromosome and X chromosome respectively.

Often, couples are under economic, social and medical pressure to give birth to a child of a specific gender.

There are thousands of health problems and medical disorders identified by scientists related to gender that passes from parent to child.

In the past, gender selection was offered to parents who have concerns regarding genetic diseases induced in a specific gender. Gender specific diseases can be restricted by the process of gender selection. Family balancing, however, is a new concept developed for gender selection. Couples are keen to explore gender selection which can offer them almost 100 percent ability to obtain their choice of gender. Early sperm sorting is carried out to select sperm with the desired gender and the latest technology is regarded to be extremely reliable.

Embryos are tested for gender-related genetic conditions by Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis or PGD before placing it in the womb. This medical procedure offers the best opportunity to select your baby’s gender.

The PGD testing process involves the removal of one cell from the early stage embryos followed by genetic analysis based on DNA, executed in highly specialized laboratories. After the completion of the analysis for 24 to 36 hours, parents are offered to choose the embryos to be transferred. There is a 99.9% positive scope of obtaining the desired gender after pregnancy is achieved.

More than 60% of patients undergoing IVF after the gender selection procedure give birth to a healthy baby after the transfer of an embryo.

Methods of Gender Selection

Gender selection has been explored for many years and has been highly researched over time. There has been intense interest by Asians, Egyptians and the people of Greek culture in gender selection. Documented scientific research has been made that reveals the chance of various methods of pregnancy achievement in the past.

Intensive research in this field in the 1980s and 1990s has brought out successful scopes of achieving a desired pregnancy guaranteed with PGD.

Process of IVF/PGD

  1. Hormones are administered to nurture numerous developments in the ovaries. The progress is observed by ultrasound and blood tests.

  2. Eggs are drawn out via the vagina under the influence of anesthesia.

  3. Couple’s eggs and sperms are mixed in the laboratory to create an embryo.

  4. The embryos formed are shifted to incubators to grow.

  5. On the third day of this culture, the embryos are biopsied by removing 1 cell out of 8. The gender of this cell is analyzed and chromosomal makeup is performed after a screening of indicated inherited disorders.

  6. Gender-selected embryos and genetic makeup are inserted in the uterus after two days.

  7. The blood test for pregnancy is usually performed after a span of 10 days.

  8. Additional healthy embryos are frozen for future use.

  9. Normal gestation and birth occur.

Pros and Cons of gender Selection


PGD and PGS ensure almost 100% guarantee that you will give birth to a baby of your desired sex.

After the PGD or PGS cycle, the embryos left of both the sexes can be stored frozen for future use in the unfortunate case that the mother suffers from a miscarriage or may want additional children in the future. Frozen embryos are as healthy as those that have been freshly transferred and are significantly cheaper and less intrusive.


One session of IVF with genetic testing costs significantly more than normal IVF treatment.

This medical procedure is incursive. It is painful to remove the eggs from the ovaries.

Medical drugs prescribed in this treatment leaves side effects like weight gain, blurred vision, swelling or bloating.

There are greater chances of multiple births through IVF pregnancy. As per the statistics of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 46% of the infants conceived through IVF or related procedures that include a transfer of multiple embryos were either twins or other multiples. However, such possibility can be lowered with PGD or PGS by executing single embryo transfer.

Women below the age of a maximum of 36 have 46% chances of live birth, whereas the success percentage lowers with an increase of age. Most IVF centers exclude the abnormal embryos while releasing their success rates with PGD and PGS and hence it seems to be higher.

Couples have to decide on what is to be done with the unused embryos. These could be frozen, donated or discarded; they can even be donated for research.

Success rates with gender selection treatments

Couples looking for establishing family balance opt for gender selection in their fertility treatment. Those couples are able to conceive naturally but go for such fertility treatment to get the baby of their desired gender. Infertility is not the reason for those parents to go for such treatment.  However, there is no 100% guarantee in such fertility treatment of gender selection. There are various factors that are responsible for the success of this particular fertility treatment. It includes the age of the couple, a level of hormones responsible for gender selection process and fertility level of both the parents. The success of gender selection treatment also largely depends on the quality of equipment, fertility laboratory and the experience of the doctor and his selection of medical course. It’s a myth that success of this type of fertility treatment solely depends on the age of the parents. However, age is a factor and we have mentioned about the level of dependency on the age factor earlier in our article.
