Is it possible to choose my baby’s gender? How far has science advanced in recent years? Is it safe? You’ve probably had a lot of questions about this. In the following article, we will talk about methods by which this could become possible.
The baby’s gender is determined by the combination of the mother’s and father’s chromosomes. Females will always have a female chromosome (X) but, the chromosome that the male will give may be either female (X) or male (Y). It depends on the sum that is made whether the baby will be a boy or a girl: if the chromosomes are XY, a boy will be born. And if they are XX, a girl will be born.
This is a process that occurs naturally at the moment of fecundation. But, thanks to technological advances, it is possible to influence the process explained above.
The choice of a baby’s gender is a topic that has been of much controversy and interest to people. Nowadays there are several techniques and methods that can influence the gender of the baby.

On the other hand, there are safer methods, in which there is a selection of sperm through artificial insemination. In which they seek to separate the sperm with Y chromosomes (male) from those with the X chromosome (female), in order to implant the desired ones in the mother.
