Sex selection is the ability to have a child of a particular sex. The sex of a baby is determined by two chromosomes, one inherited from the mother and one from the father. These chromosomes are either X or Y. The egg from the mother carries an X chromosome, and the sperm from the father carries either an X or a Y. This is what determines the sex of the baby. If a Y-bearing sperm fertilizes the egg, the embryo is male. If an X-bearing sperm fertilizes an egg, the embryo is female. PGS is used to determine the sex of the embryo with almost 100% certainty.
