PGD offers the possibility to determine the sex of embryos resulting from IVF and only transfer embryos of a particular sex back into the uterus.
PGD Procedure for Gender Selection requires the patient to take an IVF cycle during which oocytes are collected and embryos developed. For the first five days after egg collection, embryos usually grow to the Blastocyst stage and are about 120 to 150 cells.
The cells inside the Blastocyst split between placental cells and fetal cells. Removal of 5-10 cells from the placental cells does not alter the capacity of that embryo to develop into a normal pregnancy.
The removed cells are analyzed for X and Y chromosomes using the fluorescent technique and after this stage, those embryos of the desired sex are put into the uterus on day 6.
Pregnancy rate for this procedure is about 72% and the PGD accuracy rate is 100%.
The treatment lasts for 5 weeks and if you cannot stay in Bangkok for that long, we can collaborate with your family doctor to perform some treatments.
These are the options for you:
Husband is only needed 1 day for semen sample collection on the oocyte retrieval day or any day before that since we can freeze the sample.
Patient average duration stay in Thailand is 15 days and husband is required one day.
