Abstract :

Statement of the Problem: The sex ratio of boys to girls at birth in the human population is 51 to 49. Does this ratio change with the insemination of selected albumin-separated sperm? The analysis of the births born to couples who underwent sperm separation to influence the sex outcome of their child was carried out from 1990 through 2004. Methodology: Male or female sperm selection was carried out and an intrauterine insemination was performed of the selected sperm as previously reported. Findings: The results are presented for both male and female selection. A total of 43 children were born to couples selecting for a male and a total of 71 children (which included six sets of twins) were born to couples selecting for a female. Conclusion & Significance: Whether the couple chose to have a boy or a girl the data shows that their chances of having a child of the chosen sex was significantly greater than that by chance alone. Couples who chose to have a female were two times the number of couples who chose to have a male. This can be explained by the fact that most couples wish to have children of both sexes. Since the ratio of children at birth is 51% male to 49% female, males will be slightly more prevalent than females at birth and more couples will want to have a daughter to balance their offspring.
