Gender selection is achieved through IVF. This is the process of inducing a woman’s body into producing multiple eggs using a fertility medication regimen recommended by Dr. Laurence Jacobs based on your medical needs. Then, your eggs are retrieved and go to the embryology laboratory for fertilization in vitro with your partner’s sperm – or donated sperm. The resulting embryos are carefully monitored in the lab by our embryologists as they develop.
Cost of Gender Selection
The cost of PGS screening for gender selection is in addition to the fee for your IVF procedure and fertility medication. You must be informed about the varying factors involved in determining the total cost of gender selection before making a decision. There could be several fertility factors determining your chances of achieving a successful pregnancy and healthy birth of a baby of your gender preference. You must consult with a fertility specialist having extensive clinical experience in gender selection through IVF. Otherwise, it will be impossible for you to become well-informed about your total cost in successfully choosing the sex of your baby. Once Dr. Jacobs has the information he needs to recommend the best IVF protocol for your personal needs, then the total cost of gender selection through PGS can be more accurately predicted.
