Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT-A) is opted by most couples undergoing IVF treatment. At most times, couples opt for PGT-A for medical reasons. Genetic diseases such as haemophilia or Duchenne muscular dystrophy could be fatal in boys, which make it a primary reason for couples opting to know the gender of the baby. In addition, there are some couples who want to have a balanced family with equal boys and girls to ensure that the kids have siblings of the same gender.
