Gender determination is not officially part of prenatal ultrasound examination. Nevertheless, if you so wish, the sonographer will often reveal the gender during the 20-week ultrasound. If the gender is not clearly visible at that time, the sonographer will not perform any further examination of the gender. If you do not want to know the gender of your baby please tell the sonographer in advance so that they can accommodate your request.n commodo luctus, nisi erat porttitor ligula, eget lacinia odio sem nec elit.

Determining the gender

Determining the gender

Around 16 weeks, the gender of your baby can be determined with reasonable certainty by means of an ultrasound. The baby is then about 15 cm long and weighs 100 grams. It is the first time that your baby can no longer be seen in its entirety on the ultrasound! The gender is not always clearly visible, because sometimes your baby may be lying in an unfavorable position or have its legs in front of the genitals.

Or schedule a scan-for-fun!

Nowadays, you don’t have to wait for the 20-week ultrasound if you want to know your baby’s gender. You can schedule a scan-for-fun ultrasound for around the time when the gender can be specifically examined. Nowadays, scan-for-fun ultrasounds can be taken as early as 13 weeks., but an ultrasound at this time is less reliable than one taken at the time when the genital organ is properly developed. This is from about week 16.

 

How is the gender of a baby determined?

Of course you can use our gender predictor to predict the gender of your baby. But, if you want a fairly certain verdict, you can have it determined during an ultrasound.

The gender of a baby is already determined at the moment of fertilization. It depends on the male sperm cell that fertilizes the female egg cell. Male sperm cells contain either a Y chromosome or an X chromosome. The X stands for a girl and the Y stands for a boy. A female egg contains the X chromosome by default; thus, if it is fertilized by a sperm cell with an X chromosome, it becomes a girl. If the egg is fertilized with a sperm cell with a Y chromosome, it grows into a boy.

Did you know that sperm cells with a Y chromosome (boy) swim faster than sperm cells with an X chromosome (girl)? On the other hand, these sperm cells die faster than the sperm cells with the X chromosome.
