Are you dreaming of having a baby boy or girl? Gender selection makes it possible to choose the sex of your child.
Dr. Sonja Kristiansen offers solutions to help parents with family balancing and prevent passing on sex-linked genetic diseases.
So, why should you consider our state-of-the-art fertility clinic in Houston, TX, for sex selection?
Choose the Sex of Your Child with Gender Selection
Here at Houston Fertility Center, we offer gender selection to allow hopeful parents to choose the sex of their child and achieve family balancing. Dr. Kristiansen can perform gender selection through genetic testing or gender enhancement wash so that only the embryos with the favored gender are transferred into the uterus. Our Houston, TX, practice utilizes the most advanced methods and has been providing leading fertility services for over 10 years to patients throughout Sugar Land and beyond.
Common Reasons to Consider Gender Selection
Some parents who already have a child of one gender may wish to have a child of the opposite gender. Sex selection can help those parents achieve the family dynamic they desire. In some cases, patients may have certain social, economic, or personal reasons for wanting to have a child of a specific gender.
Some couples have genetic diseases that they do not want to pass on to their children. For example, hemophilia and muscular dystrophy are sex-linked disorders that mostly affect male offspring. Therefore, any couples with these medical concerns may choose to have a female baby.
Our Expertise and Technology Make It Possible
Understanding How Gender Selection Works
In general, there is about a 50/50 chance of conceiving either a male or a female child. A female parent carries an XX chromosomal makeup, while a male parent is XY. Therefore, the male parent can contribute an X chromosome or a Y chromosome. If an "X" sperm fertilizes the egg, a baby girl is conceived. In contrast, if the sperm that fertilizes the egg is a "Y," the offspring will be male. Here at the Houston Fertility Center, we offer IVF, INVOcell, and gender enhancement wash for sex selection.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
Our fertility center utilizes the latest tools and techniques to help hopeful parents achieve their family goals. We use a genetic testing method known as PGD to identify whether embryos are XX or XY. This allows us to select which embryos will be placed into the woman's uterus to achieve pregnancy with your desired gender. PGD is performed with either IVF or INVOcell. These methods have success rates that compare well to the national average, making them a safe and reliable option for sex selection.
The IVF and INVOcell Treatment Process
"If I Could Give More Stars, I Would"
Dr. Kristiansen and her staff are amazing! If I could give more stars, I would. For my first appointment, I went by myself and Dr. Kristiansen was so warmly, and non judgmental on every question I’ve asked her. Every visit since then, my fiancé have gone with me and everytime, the staff would hold conversations with us and answer any and every question we’ve had.View On Google
Dr K and her entire staff are a GOD SEND! I’ve had two miscarriages back to back and when i came to see Dr K i was extremely distraught and just wanted to find out what was wrong with me. She worked very closely with me to find out the root cause of my miscarriages. We ended up doing a medicated cycle and it worked the first round and in currently 7 weeks pregnant and have just graduated from her office to my regular OB’s.View On Google
Gender Enhancement Wash
While gender enhancement wash has been performed in fertility clinics for over 30 years, it is not FDA-approved because it is considered an unreliable method for gender selection with low pregnancy rates.
What Is the Cost of Sex Selection?
Our clinic understands that the cost of fertility treatment can be significant. We try to make treatment as affordable as possible and offer several financing options to help offset the cost of care. Our warm and friendly staff are always willing to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
