Boy or girl?
Well, having Your Baby at Home is a big and important decision, and when it comes to having a balance in the family that decision requires a choice, one that is already possible to make.
Eligender® is an Ingenes signature service, a procedure that allows patients to choose the sex of their baby. This technique is based on the analysis of genes located in the sex chromosomes (X and Y), whose presence or abscence indicates the sex of the embryo.

How does it work?

The sex of an embryo is determined by the chromosomes carried by the sperm, and as we know, a sperm can carry either the X or the Y chromosome, so a woman’s egg only contributes the X chromosome to the fertilized embryo, resulting in a boy when it is XY and in a girl if it is XX.

What does this technique consist of?

The technique begins with the biopsy of the embryos developed from an in vitro fertilization on day 3 or 5 of its development. From this, 1 to 15 cells are obtained in order to be analyzed by advanced molecular biology techniques.
This biopsy is performed by an expert biologist in assisted reproduction and after the genomic analysis of the cells obtained from the biopsy performed on each embryo, the results indicate which are the embryos of female sex and which ones are of the male sex. From these results the embryos from the desired sex will be chosen to be transferred.

Why choose Eligender?

Eligender® is the best option to achieve a family balance and it is even a good alternative to avoid diseases that are linked to either sex in relation to the family history.
