IVF and gender selection in Europe

It is not uncommon that some couples wish to have a baby girl or a baby girl. Not so long ago gender selection was not possible but, nowadays, thanks to advanced science and medicine such additional procedure is available to IVF patients. Many American celebrities have taken the fate into their hands and picked the gender of their unborn children. Modern reproductive technologies are changing the world and have opened up completely new opportunities.

IVF sex / gender selection techniques are not allowed in most countries in Europe.


In the USA, the Czech Republic and many other european countries one cannot interfere with the embryo’s genome until it is established that the parents have genetic diseases and the likelihood of having a sick child is high. To carry out such actions – gender selection – a permission from the national commission is required. In Ukraine, legislation allows such interference. We are experts in this field and our conclusion is enough to conduct pre-implantation diagnosis and prevent the appearance of anomalies in the child’s genome, leading to hereditary diseases and congenital pathologies.

Today, using the IVF + sex selection program offered by Feskov Human Reproduction Group in Ukraine, a married couple can plan the gender of their baby and also have a DNA test done for hereditary diseases. The goal of this program is to ensure that intended parents have an absolutely healthy baby of a specified gender.

IVF Gender selection – who is it for?

An Italian couple that runs a successful restaurant business in Sicily has contacted Feskov Human Reproduction Group. For a long time, their career was a priority for them, but it was time to think about a child, an heir who would someday take their place and manage the family business. To accomplish this, they needed the help of reproductive specialists. The couples visited clinics in America, Georgia, and Russia. However, they experienced a series of failures: either all the embryos turned out to be female embryos, or the transfer of the embryo into the uterus did not lead to pregnancy. The family was desperate but was almost about to quit, but they heard about the Feskov Human Reproduction Group, and decided to make another attempt. Soon the long-awaited heir named Fabio appeared in the family.

The selection of the child’s gender is important not only for those who need a heir for the future prosperity of the family. The couple may want the boy to be born first, because they believe that he should become a protector for the girl they are planning later. Or, on the contrary, the parents have long dreamed about a girl, but boys are born in the family. If you preselect the sex of the child, you can establish the gender balance you need in the family.

The need to select sex can be a necessary measure in cases where there is a risk of transmission of hereditary diseases that are linked to sex. For example, girls can inherit Shereshevsky-Turner syndrome, and boys can have hemophilia. The list of dangerous genetic diseases that can seriously damage the child’s health and significantly reduce their quality of life is quite long. Those diseases can be avoided by “programming” the desired sex of the child at embryo stage.

It does not matter for what reason you need to select the sex of the child in advance. It is important that now you can do it, using the achievements of modern reproductive science and contacting the Feskov Human Reproduction Group.

IVF sex selection – how does it work?

In order to select the sex of the child, it is necessary to carry out an IVF procedure and perform genetic testing of the embryo. First, with the help of a puncture, the mature eggs ready for fertilization are extracted from the woman’s body. Then, in vitro, with the help of ICSI technology, the eggs are fertilized with partner’s sperm.

A few days later, genetic screening of the obtained embryos is carried out, which allows to determine the sex chromosomes with an accuracy of 100% and to select the sex of the child. Once the desired embryo is selected, it is placed in the woman’s uterus and pregnancy starts ending with the birth of a child of the desired sex.

Additional benefits of IVF + gender selection services

A technique that allows you to select sex has very important additional benefits. During genetic screening, the complete chromosome set is examined. This allows identification of all structural abnormalities and selection of  an embryo with a normal chromosomal set.

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis makes it possible to exclude such genetic diseases as Down’s syndrome, trisomy, muscular dystrophy, sickle cell anemia and other serious diseases which are hereditary. Thanks to science, patients now can have a completely healthy baby without genetically determined disorders. Preimplantation diagnosis can also reduce the risk of multiple pregnancy and increase the likelihood of pregnancy after embryo transfer.

How does it all work?

A patient chooses to have the IVF service + sex selection. We determine your reproductive potential, conduct a study of your DNA to determine whether it is possible in your case to select sex, whether it makes sense that a born girl or boy does not have diseases linked to sex.

The IVF program is being carried out, with the clinic taking full responsibility for the onset of pregnancy. If the pregnancy does not start or is terminated, we continue to work with you until we reach the result and we will be with you until the moment of birth.

If the female patient is over 45 years old and she cannot use her own eggs to form an embryo, she has an option of using egg donor and her partner’s sperm. In this case, the child will contain 50% of the genes of your family.

We will select for you a genetically perfect egg donor. We will take into account your wishes in terms of donor’s appearance, height, weight, ethnicity, etc. We have the largest number of egg donors in Ukraine, which are very rigorously selected, so you will have the opportunity to find “your” donor who has the greatest phenotypic similarity to you and, at the same time, healthy genetics.

Have you had hereditary cancer? We will select an egg donor for you, with “clean” genes to reduce the risk of developing oncology. Does baldness run in your family? We will find an egg donor for you who comes from a family with very healthy hair.

We guarantee that your donor has no hereditary diseases, including cancer, mental, endocrinological, and this will be confirmed by DNA test. No one will tell about a person better than their DNA. We can read this source of information and select the best DNA for your child without any genetic diseases.

At our clinic you can also use the services of a surrogate mother. We have our own large base of surrogate mothers. All of them have passed strict selection, are healthy, trustworthy, are in a good physical and mental shape. You will have the opportunity to choose from our database not only from the photo, but also personally meet and speak with the candidates you like before making your choice.

You will be able to closely monitor the course of pregnancy, see how the embryo develops, communicate with the surrogate mother and feel involved in the pregnancy. When the time of birth comes, you will be there and you will see the birth of your long-awaited baby.
