Sippy Downs, Australia (PressExposure) June 04, 2009 -- The number of couples who want to choose the gender of their unborn baby is ever increasing. According to a recent study in USA a third of couples would look to determine baby gender. There are a number of methods available - these range from very costly treatments to pregnancy old wives tales.
The costly include IVF method, PGD and ericcson method. PGD can cost up to $20,000 and is very invasive. As with all IVF the chances of getting pregnant are not 100% but if you do get pregnant the desired gender is guaranteed 100%. This method also carries the risk of multiple pregnancies.
Ericsson method filters the male sperm from the female sperm. The sperm of the desired gender is inseminated. To conceive a boy the success rate is 70-75% and to conceive a girl 70-72%.
There is also the Shettles method for predicting baby gender which is mainly down to timing. This proves difficult for women unable to pinpoint ovulation and can take months of charting etc.
Some other methods to predict baby gender include looking at whether there is a full moon, diet and even sexual positions!
There is however another method that is not costly or invasive and is also backed by a 100% money back guarantee: [http://www.thebabypredictor.com/]
