    Dr P- NBP posted this link to the article- http://genderdreaming.com/forum/atta...rm-sorting.pdf
    Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

    GT77- The article was written by Dr Savvas from Genesis in Cyprus. He is the one we were referring to.

    I read the article. It is well written. It seems to provide sufficient detail for us to try to reproduce it. I have forwarded it to my laboratory team (Charlotte Khoury and Barry Behr http://www.havingbabies.com/about-hrc/staff/barry-behr/ ) to have them examine it and see if they feel that we can create a trial. I remain skeptical though.

    My other comments on the trial are:
    1. It is very small
    2. The outcome that they are measuring (FISH results) is not the actual outcome that we care about (i.e. the gender ratio of live born normal babies or even embryos). It seems odd that would not have carried it one step further and shown that using sperm treated in this manner also changes the gender ratio of the resulting embryos.
    3. The shots that the authors take at MicroSort safety are completely groundless and obviously motivated by their desire to discredit their competitor there on Cyprus.
    4. If it does work, it does not work for the reasons that they speculate on in the article. Not buying the ‘difference in mass’ story that they are trying to sell.

    I found someone in NY that does this Dr. Masood Khatamee! Granted I am skeptical also, but u never know!
    And, dr. silverman does the eriscsson. And, I know these are not 100% but still a hope! I think silverman uses clomid & Khatameel method u do not need clomid. I do not know anything about any of these methods but it is worth exploring.

    they also say if u sway for a girl at the same time that you do this method it increases your odds. Who knows what works!! I know PGD is a sure thing, but u still have no idea how many embryos of girls you will get from 1 cycle. So, IVF is still risky when your someone like me who is paying out of pocket.

    Ericsson and this spinning is not the same. Ericsson works under the premise that boy sperm are faster swimmers than female and it utilizes a swim-down procedure. Ericsson has never been studied outside of Ericsson and I am certain there is a reason for that- they know it doesn't really do anything!

    I am one of the ladies who has first hand experience of dr Savvas sperm sort.
    I had 2 xy and 6 xx after the sort. Ive only seen one lady who the sort didn't seem to work for.
    All the other ladies had a 70% desired gender sort and more often a lot higher than that!

    He can't be making lab work and results up as someone suggested.

    So something is obviously working as again I have the two perfect girls he transferred sat eatimg lunch right now
    5 gorgeous 's
    And my beautiful genesis Cyprus born May 12

    Is icsi used with the sperm sort? I am thinking any study results on gender split of embryos where icsi is used may be skewed due to the fact that human intervention is involved. When embryologists are using icsi in creating embryos, are there specific criteria they use to choose which sperm to grab and inject into the egg?
