revolutionary method which is just 6 months old in an exclusive
interview with encomium.ng.
Trained in Canada, the Geneticist is happy to introduce the new method of sex selection to Nigeria…
What is this new method of sex selection about? What is it called?
It lets you assist nature in choosing the gender of your baby. It is called Select a SEX Maternal Patch.
Who pioneered it?
Our partner company in Canada known as Viamedex.
How long was the clinical tests before its release?
About 6 years.
How exactly does it work?
A gender selection patch is applied in the groin area once
menstruation has stopped, and replaced, once daily, for 10 consecutive
The natural ingredients in each type of gender patch diffuse through
the skin into the circulatory system in proximity to the cervical area,
and enter the cervical mucous. The minor changes they make to the
cervical mucous give a significant advantage to either of the X and Y
sperm. This change influence who will win the race. And that determines
the sex of the baby.
Glands in the cervix produce a viscous cervical mucous that allows
only about 200 sperm to survive the arduous trip. Both the X and Y sperm
traverse the SIX INCH cervical canal swimming in the thick mucus and
make their way equally well to the egg. This results in the egg being
fertilized with a 50/50 possibility of an X or Y sperm.
When the XX or XY transdermal patch is worn by the mother, there are
subtle changes that temporarily occur in the cervical mucus. These
changes create an environment whereby, depending on the selected patch,
the X or Y sperm has a decided advantage in moving through cervical
mucosa and reaching and fertilizing the egg. In effect, the selected
sperm has a decided advantage in winning the race.
How’s it different from the other methods, like Billings? Kindly tell us about other sex selection methods…
The Select a Sex Maternal patch is different from other methods such
as Billings because it is gender specific. For example, the XY Patch
facilitates a male embryo, while the XX Patch facilitates a female
embryo. It is also 100% natural herbal extract, and drug free.
Other sex selection methods are, the Ericsson method, IVF/PGD technique, and sperm sorting.
What is the success rate of this new method?
So far, the success rate is 78%.
How much does it cost?
N49,500 only ( It has 30 patches which can be used for 3 months).
However, if fertilization occurs in the first or second month, the use
of the patch will no longer be necessary.
How is it procured?
It can be ordered from our website (www.humgene.com), over the phone (08107519982), or at our office (1st Floor, 4 Wilmer street, beside Isheri Police Station, Berger, Lagos).
What is the advantage of sex selection generally?
It is advisable for parents with genetic disorder problems. It can
prevent gender-related diseases. For example, hemophilia which occurs
only in boys, and thalassemia, that are genetically related and gender
specific from being passed on by the mother or the father to the baby.
It may help reduce abortion rate. Many doctors have reported that a
number of parents opt for abortion after discovering the sex of their
