Pregnancy defines the most exciting process for families expecting children, especially the gender of the little member who will open their eyes to life is one of the most curious topics. Although it is believed that the mother plays a role in determining the sex of the baby in society, the truth is very different. It should be noted that the side that prevails on the X or Y chromosome in the genes of both parents, rather than the mother, is the factor in determining gender, Turkey Medicals member and Antalya IVF hospital Obstetrician Gynecologist Professor Doctor gave information about the subject in our news…

A lot of false information about reproductive health in society is spread by word of mouth, and the concept of baby gender is at the top of the false norms. Many individuals may miss the biological facts when attributing the sex of the baby to a woman. Because the chromosomes that determine whether a baby is a boy or a girl are found in male sperm.

The effective force determining sex is sperm. When the first sperm entering the ovary is the X chromosome, the sex of the baby becomes a girl, and when the winner of the race is the Y chromosome, the sex of the baby becomes a man.

The fact is that male sperm can also have X and Y chromosomes. In this case, the X chromosome that fertilizes the egg merges with the mother’s X chromosome to form a baby girl, and the Y chromosome merges with the mother’s and creates a boy.

Therefore, both the maternal and paternal chromosomes have an effect on determining gender. The important thing is that the baby who will be born in Turkey is healthy and can spend the rest of his life in a healthy way.
