How can you tell if your having a boy or a girl.By the way your carrying or it or by the way the other babies inter act with the fetus?

How can you tell if your having a boy or a girl.By the way your carrying or it or by the way the other babies inter act with the fetus?

Neither.: It doesn't matter how you are carrying the baby, whether s/he kicks, whether a gold ring dangling from a chain goes back and forth or around in circles, or any other old wives tale. Each pregnancy you have exactly a 50:50 chance of getting one or the other gender. Sex can be determined by ultrasound or amniocentesis (some of the amniotic flood is take with a needle and tested). ...Read more

Why wont they tell me if we have a baby boy or girl? They say to wait for the special doctor.

Why wont they tell me if we have a baby boy or girl? They say to wait for the special doctor.

Who is "they"?: The ultrasound technician is not really supposed to comment on, or interpret the study, including sex of baby, or any other findings. It does not mean anything is wrong. Be patient and wait to the appropriate doctor to answer all your questions. ...Read more

Doc please tell how to know whether I am carrying a boy or a girl other than ultrasound.Home method to detect. I am very very tensed these days abt baby?

Doc please tell how to know whether I am carrying a boy or a girl other than ultrasound.Home method to detect. I am very very tensed these days abt baby?

Why so tensed?: There is no reliable home method to determine the sex of your baby. While it is common these days to determine gender via ultrasound, my wife & i chose not to do this with our children- we waited til birth to find out. Why are you so tensed? How would learning if your baby is a boy or girl reduce your tension? If it is important then get an ultrasound, but this is not reliable until 18 weeks. ...Read more

Why would a doctor refuse to do a sono for me to find out if I am having a boy or a girl?

Why would a doctor refuse to do a sono for me to find out if I am having a boy or a girl?

Covered procedure ?: A lot of what you might want during pregnancy is not considered "medically necessary" by your insurance company. Since they own you and control what gets paid, your doc has to decide if they want to do something for free, or order a test the hospital won't get paid for, to satisfy your curiosity.It has been decades since you or your doctor have a free hand to decide what they do ...Read more

Is there anything a doctor can do to help separate the sperm from a boy and a girl. if so, how much $$$?

Is there anything a doctor can do to help separate the sperm from a boy and a girl. if so, how much $$$?

Not specificly: The present tech is limited to random fertilization during IVF and selecting the gender after the embryo is forming. Since this involves some ethical issues (abandoning unwanted embryos) and no guarantee of success, I am not aware that anyone is doing it in this country. ...Read more

Why does my doc see my private im a girl and the boy doc always pull my pants and panties off and tells me he has to look at it why do they do that?

Why does my doc see my private im a girl and the boy doc always pull my pants and panties off and tells me he has to look at it why do they do that?

If : If you are unsure why your doctor is examing your genitals, then you need to ask questions;and if you are uncomfortable or don't agree with the rdoctors response or easoning then you have the right to refuse the exam, and even find another provider if that makes you more comfortable. Also a male doctor should always have a female nurse or medical assistant present when examing a female patient. If this was not done bring it up to the doctor or office manager during your next appointment. Remember always ask questions, and never agree to any type of exam or procedure that makes you feel uncomfortable. ...Read more

Can a doctor tell if you're a virgin from an examination if you're a girl?

Define virgin: Some would link virginity to the simple feature of an intact hymen.This is problamatic. The structure may not form in a typical way or may have long since receded due to non- sexual events.It may also be intact in someone with many sexual encounters that did not involve vaginal penetration.A doc may also assume sexual activity simply because of age. The best way to know is to ask. ...Read more

If you're a girl can your doctor tell if you're a virgin or not from an examination?

Female Anatomy: Yes. They can see that the hymen is still intact. But, that exam is not all there is to sexual activity. But, if the hymen is intact girls are 'thought' to still be virgins. I would be very curious what prompts the question given that no physician should provide anyone the diagnosis or finding. That would be so unethical the doctor could lose their license. ...Read more
