Two tests that can be performed during pregnancy, amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, can both reveal the gender of your baby with accuracy.

Both of these tests carry the risk of miscarriage after having the test done.

Amniocentesis

This procedure is used to extract amniotic fluid from around the baby in order to test for complications. The fluid is removed by using a needle inserted into the abdomen around 16 – 18 weeks. Women over the age of 35 are recommended to get this test done due to the increased risk of Down’s Syndrome presented by advanced maternal age.

This test will reveal:

  • Chromosomal Disorders
  • 200 Single Gene Disorders
  • Baby’s Gender

Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS)

This test is usually performed 10 – 12 weeks after the last menstrual period. Your doctor will tiny tissue sample from outside the sac where the fetus develops. The tissue is tested to diagnose or rule out certain birth defects. There is a higher risk of miscarriage with this method than with the amniocentesis.

This test will also reveal:

  • Chromosomal Disorders
  • 200 Single Gene Disorders
  • Baby’s Gender
