When does the gender of the fetus appear?


It is difficult to know the gender of the fetus in the third month! Or does the type of fetus appear in the first fourth month? Or at what week do you know for sure whether the fetus is male or female? These are all questions that pregnant women usually ask, and it depends on the examination method used. The different techniques we will explain later will depend on the type of paper you are using.


blood test


By the eleventh week of pregnancy, the sex of the fetus can be determined by testing the mother's blood


Ultrasound examination



Ultrasound examination


Ultrasound can be used to determine the gender of the fetus The gender of the fetus can be determined around the 14th week of pregnancy, but it is not always accurate until the 18th week


 Symptoms of pregnancy in the first month



Chorionic Villus Examination


Taking a sample of the placenta cells is a test that is done in the tenth week of pregnancy, the results of which can show the sex of the fetus in the twelfth week of pregnancy


Amniocentesis


Amniocentesis is a test that is performed in the sixteenth week of pregnancy and shows the sex of the fetus at the eighteenth week


During IVF


In vitro fertilization (IVF) are procedures in which a doctor can select embryos before they are transferred to the uterus

Techniques used to determine the gender of the fetus


Many precise techniques can be used to determine the sex of the fetus. Some of these techniques include: - Abdominal ultrasound - Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) - Amniocentesis



Ultrasound


Ultrasound can determine the sex of the fetus and provide a detailed picture of it inside the uterus. This information can help the doctor determine the gender of the fetus


Studies have shown that ultrasound imaging is very accurate in determining the sex of the fetus. In some cases, no further testing may be needed. It may be difficult to take good pictures of the fetus if it is in an unusual position.

DNA test



DNA test


A prenatal test (NIPT) is available for women who have a high chance of having a baby with chromosomal disorders and it can also be done for other women starting from the tenth week of pregnancy. Results appear one or two weeks after the sample is taken Blood is a very important part of the human body


This examination can reveal that the fetus has Down syndrome as well as some chromosomal disorders The examination also includes looking for parts of the male chromosome in the blood sample

Chorionic Villus Examination


  • Chorionic villus sampling is a prenatal test that includes steps such as measuring the size and shape of the chorionic villi
  • Ultrasound images are taken by inserting a needle through the abdomen or cervix this avoids harming the fetus
  • A sample of chorionic villus tissue is taken using a needle. This tissue contains the same genetic material as the fetus
  • The sample is checked to see if any missing or abnormal chromosomes can help diagnose chromosomal and genetic problems and disorders. This is especially useful if there is a family history of these problems.



It is important to note that chorionic villus sampling does not usually require hospitalization and can be performed without anesthesia. However, in some cases, local anesthesia may be necessary to reduce the discomfort the pregnant woman feels during the examination. The test takes about 20 minutes, and it is recommended that you rest a bit after it is over. Making an effort after a scan is a bad idea

Amniocentesis


Stages of pregnancy from egg to birth



Amniocentesis


Amniocentesis is a prenatal diagnostic test that looks for genetic abnormalities in the fetus. This test is usually done between the 15th and 20th weeks of pregnancy.


This test involves withdrawing a small amount of amniotic fluid from the mother’s abdomen This fluid contains cells from the fetus to be examined It is only performed if it is determined that the fetus has sex chromosomes that do not match those of the mother The procedure may be risky for the fetus


Preimplantation Genetic Screening


Preimplantation genetic screening (PPGE) can be done during IVF (AI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) This includes checking the fetuses to see if they have any genetic or chromosomal problems, as well as knowing the gender of the fetus

It should be noted that the accuracy of preimplantation genetic tests in determining the sex of the fetus is 100%. However, if embryos of both sexes are transferred to the uterus, it is not possible to predict which ones will implant
