Sex selection is the ability to choose a girl or a boy before you get pregnant by using some method to assist you in changing the odds towards the sex you select.
Some people refer to this as gender selection, but that isn't quite right.
Depending on the method of selection you choose, the ability to have that girl or boy of your dreams is nearly 100%.
With nearly 100% accuracy and the ability to select not only sex but a healthy embryo makes it very popular.
Though this is a costly and intensive method of sex selection that uses in vitro fertilization and does biopsies on the embryos before they are returned to the uterus.
Shettles Method The Shettles Method is based on the fact that male and female sperm travel and survive in the reproductive tract for varying amounts of time.
So you time intercourse about 12 hours prior to ovulation for a boy and several days before ovulation for a girl.
This is a very simplified explanation of the Shettles Method.
Ericsson Albumin Method With Ericsson, the sperm sample is placed in a test tube with albumin in various concentrations and the sperm will swim through the albumin.The thought process is that the fastest sperm will swim to the bottom.The sperm is selected for use in an intrauterine insemination (IUI) determined by whether or not you are trying to have a girl or a boy.While the sample doesn't provide you with more of one particular sex, like a Micro Sort® sample, it does supposedly help select the sex of the baby by supposedly separating the X carrying sperm from the Y.For a girl, Ericsson uses Clomid® since, despite the lack of science, he suggests it can increase the number of girls born.Micro Sort®The Micro Sort® process sorts sperm by male and female by a process that measures differences in the DNA.
