Family Planning

For some couples, gender is an important part in deciding whether to have a child. There are disorders that affect only females or only males. By having a child of a specific gender, a sex-specific disorder can be avoided.​

​There are also many couples who want to have another child, but have a strong desire to have a child of a specific gender. They may already have 2 or 3 children of one gender and want to balance the family dynamics or have a child with the opposite gender.

​Through PGT, gender selection is possible. The Delaware Institute for Reproductive Medicine is one of a handful of clinics that offer the techniques, including IVF and PGT, for gender/sex selection for non-medical reasons.
