Gender testing on frozen embryos? — The Bump

Gender testing on frozen embryos?

Does anyone have experience with this?  We ended up with boy-boy twins after IVF.  We are debating trying for a third with frozen embryos from that cycle.  I would consider gender testing if it's possible.

Thank you!

Re: Gender testing on frozen embryos?

  • Is there a medical reason you'd consider gender testing?  My RE will not do gender testing unless their is a medical condition that could only be passed to one gender.

  • When they did CGH on my embryos they told us the sex you would only have to do PGD to figure out the sex and if the embryos were normal.

  • My clinic offers this as a test that they will do after extensive counselling. Is there a medical reason you need this, that is, a disease that would be transferred gender specific?

    As I did PGD on my embies I know that I have a G/B in the freezer for my FET

    Multiple ectopics, 2 failed IVF's
    IVF #1: Did not get to ET, embies all failed PGD (major chromosomal defects)
    IVF #2: We have 2 chromosomally perfect embies as a result of PGD (Boy/Girl) 1 failed the thaw (Girl) Transferred 1, yet ended as a c/p
    Thought it was the end of our TTC Journey 6/20/2012
    SHOCK BFP 9/28/2012: IT'S A BOY! and everything is normal !!!!!!

    Little A born 38w 2d on 05/23/13 and is a true miracle for this IF Vet!

  • I don't think this is the right board for this question. Unless you have a medical reason for chosing your gender, this question is particularly irritating and honestly offensive to people that would give anything for a baby- regardless of sex.

    DH: Severe MFI/Azoo Me: Compound heterozygous MTHFR
    IVF #1= m/c- methotrexate @6w2d
    FET #1= BFN
    IVF #2= m/c- D&C @8w5d
    IVF #3= Beta #1 9dp5dt= 252, Beta #2 11dp5dt= 417, Beta #3 17dp5dt= 4,952
    US #2 @ 7w2d= twins, baby B measuring behind
    US #3 @ 8w5d= Baby A doing well, no HR in baby B

  • Yes you can. Not every clinic does pgd purely for sex selection. You may have to transfer your embryoes to a clinic that does, but it's definitely an option. Good luck getting your little girl. I did pgd for sex selection only, for a boy.
