Success rates vary with each couple, they usually want to know what their chances are of delivering a healthy baby of the desired sex. Success rates depend upon many factors including which procedure is chosen, the couple’s age, underlying medical conditions, menses or timing of ovultion, just to name a few even couples who have had a few children without any incidents or complications and conceived easily, may still take several cycles to become pregnant. It is important to remember that each pregnancy is different and not dependent on the other. Couples who are “ re-productively healthy” have a greater chance of conceiving than those with underlying diseases, such as male factor infertility. Couples choosing the Ericsson Method of gender selection will undergo an intrauterine insemination (IUI) , or Intra Cervical Insemination (ICI), possibly using ovulation inducing medications if the womans' cycles are not regular.
Reproductively healthy couples have a 20-25% chance of conceiving in any given month where regular intercourse occurs. Those undergoing intrauterine insemination with ovulation inducing medications generally have a 25-30% chance of becoming pregnant in any given cycle. Therefore, some couples will require more than one cycle and most couples will be pregnant after three or four cycles.
The Ericsson Method increases the probability that a boy or a girl will be conceived based upon which sperm fraction (albumin separated) is chosen. Approximately 70-75% of the time, a couple will have a baby of the selected gender. The percentage for a female offspring increases when Clomid is prescribed during the cycle.
In general, Ericsson Method couples who undergo four cycles of IUI have a >80% of conceiving and a 70-75% chance of producing the desired sex.
