The world over, and especially in Africa and Asia, couples show a preference for particular sex of children; eithermale or female. This preference may arise due to economic reasons, customs of the people, or simply for a “genderbalanced family”. Whatever the reasons, the fact still remains that couples would like to be able to choose the sex oftheir children. While there are various options to achieve sex selection, all of them are either too expensive or tooinvasive. This paper presents how…

A preconception gender assessment using data mining techniques based on implementation of natural laws & favoring factors

TLDR
Different research methods in medical field based on Natural Laws & Favoring Factors are analyzed, different macroscopic factors affecting directly the possible gender of offspring in the womb of the mother before conception are extracted and data mining techniques are applied to classify the possibleGender as male or female.

Preconceptional sex selection: past, present, and future.

TLDR
It remains speculative whether 100% pure preparation of X or Y sperm can be obtained unless a major improvement in methodology is achieved, but it can be expected that the clinical and commercial application of the technology of preconceptional sex selection by X and Y sperm separation will be a reality in near future.

Female feticide in India: issues and concerns.

TLDR
There is a dire need to strengthen the Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act since the number of convictions is despairingly low and it is necessary to gear efforts against the cultural, economic and religious roots of this social malady by woman empowerment and intensive Information, Education and Communication campaigns.

Experiences in Hong Kong with the theory and practice of the albumin column method of sperm separation for sex selection.

TLDR
This study confirmed that the HSA sperm separation method can bias the number of babies in favour of males, and the theory that it does so by enriching the sperm samples with Y-bearing spermatozoa appears to be incorrect and some other theory has to be postulated.

Size differences between human X and Y spermatozoa and prefertilization diagnosis.

TLDR
The pre-screening by micro-measurement of these specific haploid characteristics of individual spermatozoa in different donors, which may be closely related to their different genetic conditions (or diseases), may be important in human medicine and animal husbandry, especially in sperm prefertilization diagnosis.

SPERM VELOCITY IN SEMINAL PLASMA AND THE ASSOCIATION WITH GENDER OF OFFSPRING

TLDR
The data suggest that sperm movement in seminal plasma is a marker for factors that skew the ratio of the X- to Y-sperm populations, and predicted 75 and 68% of the male offspring births, respectively.

The timing of the “fertile window” in the menstrual cycle: day specific estimates from a prospective study

TLDR
Only about 30% of women is the fertile window entirely within the days of the menstrual cycle identified by clinical guidelines—that is, between days 10 and 17; most women reach their fertile window earlier and others much later.

A boy or a girl? A Hungarian survey regarding gender selection

TLDR
The findings revealed a trend to preference for firstborn males, although couples wishing more than one offspring prefer equal numbers of male and female children, which would not seem to appreciably affect the natural male/female ratio.
