Myths on predicting sex before birth – Pink or Blue?
It is only natural for a parent to be curious about the sex of their unborn baby. Choosing the decor for your baby’s room or being questioned by family members about the new addition may leave you wondering. Knowing whether you are having a boy or a girl can help with the preparations before the birth. Old wives tales, myths, quizzes and other traditional methods such as the Chinese conception chart can be fun but are in no way an accurate or reliable means of determining if the child is male or female. So if you want a precise scientific way for early confirmation of the sex of your baby.

How does the test determine if the foetus is male or female?
At EasyDNA are proud to be the first company in South Africa to offer this non-invasive laboratory based gender predictor. The methodology involves isolating foetal DNA from urine through a novel procedure specifically developed by our highly advanced genetic laboratory. Next, the purified DNA is analyzed for the presence of male and female DNA.
Presence of the male Y chromosome in the urine stream indicates that the foetus is male. Absence of male DNA indicates that the foetus is female. The above results only count if all directions for sample collection and shipment of the urine specimen are followed.
