Over hereditary diseases Unlike many programs offering gender selection only to very limited couples with known genetic disorders in the family we make gender selection available to all patients. Parents have come to us from from nearly every nation on the planet we have assisted patients from different nations seeking to balance their families or assure themselves that a pregnancy will result in ONLY the gender outcome they desire.
Family Balancing Scenarios Couple 1 Mr. Adams names are fictitious present to our offices with a request for gender selection. The couple reports having successfully conceived and delivered three healthy females. The last birth was three years ago. Adams has a strong family history of girls being born, with his only brother having produced two girls, and three cousins also having had a total of seven female and one male offspring.
Adams underwent genetic analysis of the "sex ratio" percentage of "X" and "Y" sperm of his total sperm production. His total sperm count was 38 million per ml. After separating his sperm for the desired gender, we would be left with a sperm count of at best, million.
This would not be enough to allow for a reasonable chance of the couple conceiving with simple sperm selection and insemination.
Advised of the situation concerning their sperm sex ratio, the couple wisely elected to proceed with the IVF-PGD option.
They were rewarded with a twin pregnancy that resulted in the birth of two healthy, male infants. While we exist to provide high quality medical services, we very strictly adhere to guidelines that have a history of providing excellent outcome results.

With very few female offspring in either of their families, they were interested in sex selection aimed at the production of a female. They undertook an initial telephone consultation with me, Dr.
Steinberg, that indicated their suitability for our program so long as some initial blood tests the Doctor requested were in order. The blood testing was ordered from a hospital laboratory near their home in London.
One week later, the initial blood screening results showed them to be excellent candidates for the gender selection procedure. Total sperm count on the male was 88 million per ml. The couple were directed to one of the several fertility centers in London that we work with who assisted us in the preparation of the patients for the procedure.
They began their procedure under the co-direction of our program working with the medical team in London. Two weeks later, they arrived in Los Angeles.Washington Center for Reproductive Medicine Gender Selection, Family Balancing.

Gender and Family Gender and family affect minors and their delinquency in many different ways. Both are factors that begin in the early learning stages in a minors life and continue on into adulthood. With gender, the difference between males and females is the socialization.
In the controversial public debate over modern American families, the vast changes in family life--the rise of single, two-paycheck, and same-sex parents--have often been blamed for declining morality and unhappy children. Traditional education creates, in time, an incomplete image on family’s gender roles.
From generation to generation children interiorize theirs parent’s model known as “separated world’s myth”- a wife and a mother only cooking, doing laundry and taking care of the child “contrasting” with a husband and a father working or fixing different things.
