What will the sex of your baby be? What until now could only be known from the fourth month of pregnancy, can already be known from the second month of pregnancy.Thanks to the investigations of a group of scientists, which was always determined through an ultrasound and even Through invasive procedures such as amniocentesis, chorionic villus biopsy, and cordocentesis, it is now determined with a three-milliliter sample of maternal blood, starting at the seventh or eighth week of gestation.
The process begins with the isolation of fetal DNA and it is known, with an accuracy of 98 percent, if it is a boy or a girl. In addition, the same sample can identify diseases such as hemophilia or Duchenne muscular dystrophy, in the fetus.
