Not many people are aware, but it might actually possible to choose the sex of a baby. You might think it’s impossible, but have you ever heard of Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)?
It’s considered the gold standard for sex selection and involves in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), which the removal of one cell from embryos and the analysis of the chromosomes and DNA three days after fertilisation. After that embryos of the desired sex can then be chosen.
However, PGD is only used for medical purposes in Singapore. For example, if there was a genetic disease that happened to run frequently in boys, couples would be allowed to have PGD to implant only female embryos.
So what do you do if you are longing for a girl or hankering for a son but are not eligible for PGD? Well, you have two options: You can fly to the US or Russia, where mainstream PGD is legal, (but be prepared to fork out a pretty penny), or you can try some natural methods that have been believed to help you sway Mother Nature to doing things in your favor.
