Gender Test Online
You can BUT: You can but I wouldn't paint the nursery based on the results! You can make any prediction you want but that doesn't mean that they will be right. The same comment would apply to the drano test, and the cabbage test. ...Read more
Yes: At 15 weeks you should be able to determine the baby's gender by ultrasound. ...Read more
Hopefully not...: For the past 200, 000 years (that's 10, 000 generations of people), we were just fine not knowing the gender of an upcoming baby until birth. Then, we got "smarter" 50 years ago and started telling people a baby's gender before birth. The natural way is probably best, as there is no need to know the gender ahead of time, unless there's a genetic defect that happens with one gender but not the other. ...Read more

We tried a couple gender tests hours after we had unprotected sex. With this effect the fact that they all tested positive for a boy? I'm 10weeks.

So no "test " you did after sex would mean anything. An ultrasound in 8-10 wks would. ...Read more
Why does GFR test ask about african-american? What's optimal gfr? Are age, gender, and race taken into account? Why?

Accordingly, we need to factor these elements in the equation to estimate kidney function (gfr). ...Read more
I’ve taken ovulation tests and they say I’m fertile. However, I want to select the gender. Even though I’m fertile, can I do IVF?
Yes, but...: It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature. Always decide if there is truly an overwhelmingly convincing reason to interfere with nature, before trying to do it. If there is no known genetic defect in the family genes that would create a mutation in either boys or girls, then we let nature decide whether the next baby will be a boy or girl. If no mutations, both boy and girl babies are fine. ...Read more
