It depends: If you mean spinning the semen down to remove Y or X chromosomes, it varies depending on physician. You would need to see and be evaluated by reproductive endocrinologist. It involves providing a semen sample, having the lab spin it and prepare and then typically reintroducing it into the uterus through intrauterine insemination. Insurance will not cover if it is purely for gender
