Anyone use IUI for gender selection? Looking to balance my family. Also, is it painful?

It’s a “more likely than not” kind of thing - one gender of sperm is faster than the other. A separation of sperm by speeds helps up your chances

OP - interesting!! Good luck. I had a friend who went through the IUI process and I believe it was fairly straight forward. I know for IVF when they do the transfer it is pretty painless I’d assume an IUI would be too.

I had 2 IUIs. Not painful at all. Gender selection was not discussed in either case so I can’t comment on that

I’m not sure how you would use IUI for gender selection. You can use IVF. I did IVF for infertility issues. It is intense

Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
