Abstract
ABSTRACT
Introduction: One of the factors that increase the fertilization rate, embryo quality and also fertilization percentage is using a right method for selecting sperm which can be done with optical instrument such as IMSI or the process might be chemical like gradient solutions. PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) is developed as a diagnostic procedure to determine fetal genetic diseases and sex determination. Materials and Methods: In our study we examined the gender of microinjection method fertilized embryos by fluorescent situ hybrizidation. Results: This study showed that sperm selecting methods can effect on the results of micro injected embryos gender as it was compared to the results of other studies in the field of fetal sex from microinjection. There was a significant increase in fetus male gender. Conclusion: We suggest that Chemical methods can be used in couples with female reproductive problems for sex selective Results and its selectivity are by the motility of the sperm and this study requires more investigations.
