Hi,

One of my friend asked, if we can choose gender before conceiving the child ? I heard it's possible. Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about the procedure, idea of cost, success rate, and any implications/side-effects for the mother ?

Yes you can choose gender with todays technology but it will have to be via IVF method.

This info is applicable for Thompson Hospital, Kota Damansara.

Cost wise IVF procedure is around RM15,000. Choosing the gender is an extra RM10,000.

Success rate for IVF is around 70%. Choosing gender will be 100% success rate. By choosing gender, doctor can also make sure the future baby will have no genetic disease inherited.

Regarding side effec4, I don't think there is any.

Take note the cost rate I stated above is from 2007. They might be the same now or might increase. And Thompson Hospital had been awarded best fertility hospital in the world before.

other hospital rate might be different.

It is not illegal. Religious wise, in Islam, the opinion is divided. One school of thought allow choosing gender, another does not allow. In Christianity, I think it is not even allowed to do IVF let alone choosing a baby gender.

Legally it is allowed in Malaysia. Religious wise, it is better to check with your religious leader.

success rate for ivf reduces with age. 70% is not a definite figure.

You are correct on this but it also depends on the quality of sperms and eggs harvested and other factors as well. the 70% figure was a general and average out figure of the hospital stated.

As far as I know, it is not illegal to choose gender of baby. That is why fertility hospital can offered it.
