For those who have been successful- a question for you


#1

For those with successful IVF pregnancies, I have a question.

did you have a boy or a girl? I am seeing a lot more girls born through IVF and I am curious about it. Is there a bigger chance of having a girl, or does it just seem like that?

I know of about 8 ppl who have gone through IVF and of those 8 7 had beautiful bouncing baby girls! Coincidence or something scientific going on?


#2

Not sure but I have 2 girls and 1 boy thru IVF w/icsi


#3

We had a boy :slight_smile:


#4

both boys, with icsi. I think I remember reading somehere boys are more likely with icsi, something about the sperm selection I think


#5

Interesting question! The girls on the IVF Summer 2010 thread who are having a singleton are all having boys, including me.

We didn’t do ICSI, just straight IVF.

We had our DS with IVF & ICSI. We’re hoping for either a nother healthy boy or maybe this time a girl. Most of the people I’ve met that have had IVF have had boys.


#9

There was recently a study out of Australia that said that IVf actually has a higher percentages of boys. If I find a link I will post it.

No scientific data published but i think with recent PGS, you can select boy or girl embies for txfer

You may want to google up Gene Institute for this info…

personally, i am happy with a baby, boy or girl…

I have conceived three babies via ivf (one set of twins and one miscarriage), and all three were girls.

Good luck!
