How often can an donor egg embryo split and result in identical twins? Is it in most cases or is it rare? We will be using icsi

1-2%: The reported risk is about 1-2%. No longer believed in general to be related to icsi. When more than 1 embryo is placed inside the risk seems to be higher for reasons which are not known. Also the risk as far as I am aware is not higher in donor versus non donor egg. ...Read more

About IVF treatment i want to know that in this system how it is possible to born the child without his/her parents sperm/egg?

Then the fertilized egg is implanted back into the uterus. In some cases using an egg or sperm from a third party donor is needed but in any case 1 sperm and 1 egg are needed for fertilization. ...Read more

Is ivf the procedure where you can choose gender of baby ?also what Is average cost of it ?

Is ivf the procedure where you can choose gender of baby ?also what Is average cost of it ?

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
