The IVF process and the possibility of choosing the gender of your baby have come a long way, but would-be parents are still left wondering what is the baby gender selection cost?
The key thing to remember about choosing a baby boy or girl is that it is a long process that needs special and careful consideration. There are different steps and stages involved in the treatment which can take time and patience to get through. Whilst any IVF treatment is fairly complex, it is a much simpler process than it was years ago and with a clear understanding of what is involved and the right support behind you, the path to parenthood can be a smooth one.
When you are looking at all the different steps and the time and effort involved in having a baby with the gender of your choice, it’s important to be realistic and as well informed as possible.
The path of IVF
The most common course for couples who cannot conceive is to consider specialised treatments such as IVF.
Many couples make their decision on whether or not IVF is viable for them based on their personal circumstances and financial situation.
Couples, or would-be single mothers, who are unable to conceive naturally are able to start or add to their family through IVF treatment. IVF is often tailored to the mother’s needs and situation to increase the chance of becoming pregnant.
Some couples will experience fertility issues, even if they have conceived previously. There are situations where IVF offers particular advantages, including:
Blocked fallopian tubes – Awareness of this problem may only surface when there is an issue of infertility. Blocked tubes can happen at any time or any age both before becoming pregnant for the first time and after several pregnancies.
Male infertility is the cause of close to 40% of couples needing fertility assistance. If there are significant issues with the quality of the man’s sperm (i.e. compromise in sperm count, motility or shape), then IVF is a strong option because it places the sperm and the egg within close proximity of each other to help facilitate successful fertilisation.
Lowered chance of abnormality. Some couples are at a higher risk of conceiving a baby with an abnormality (such as both partners carrying the gene for Cystic Fibrosis). The embryos through the IVF treatment can be tested for these conditions before they are implanted into the uterus. Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is the process of screening embryos to determine the genetic make-up of each embryo, as well as screening for a multitude of diseases.
There is a safe and proven way to be successful in your dream of having a baby and choosing your preferred gender through special IVF treatment.
This is where the experts at Gender Selection Australia come into the equation.
