Would love to hear from people that have done PGD for genders selection due to a genetic condition.
I have 2 wonderful boys and they both have the same condition.
I bumped into my old OB who is also and IVF specialist and he asked me if I wanted to add to my family.
We discussed my boys condition and the risk of having another boy with the same (70%) and he said it's massively reduced if we had a girl (down to 10%) - he then went onto say that he would happily "make" us a girl and to call his clinic for a consult in the morning.
My head is full of questions.
I totally don't know what to do.
I have no idea what's involved with IVF - he did mention that is would cost $7000 but we would get part of it back with our private health fund.
We don't have any fertility issues. I'm 35 and fell pregnant first try with our second 5yrs ago - will this make IVF a little easier for us?
I don't like the thought of eliminating the boys to get a healthy girl and then what can I do with the healthy embryos that I don't use- I would love to donate them.
Ta - oh my head

PGD Gender Selection

Is the condition that you are looking to diagnose detectable with PGD?
I ask, because if it is, you could do PGD to detect the condition, and exclude any embryos that carry it, regardless of gender. A google search should be able to tell you if this detection is possible.
You would also be able to donate any leftover embryos that you may end up with.

They can't currently test for it but they think it's genetic.
