Early Gender Testing
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does this service cost?
A: $120 for test results.
Q: Is the Peekaboo early gender reveal safe for my pregnancy?
A: Baby gender testing through Peekaboo is absolutely safe for both mother and baby because it is non-invasive. All that is required for testing is a small blood sample from the mother.
Q: How accurate is my result if I find out I was earlier than 6 weeks pregnant at the time of blood draw?
A: The Peekaboo test may be taken as early as 6 weeks of pregnancy or later. Accuracy at earlier times is unknown. There is an increased risk of an incorrect female result prior to 6 weeks’ gestation as the fetal DNA could be below the detection limit of the assay.
Q: What is the science behind the Peekaboo early gender reveal test?
A: DDC scientists isolate cell-free fetal DNA from the mother’s blood, followed by amplification of both Y-chromosome and autosomal-specific regions using the latest quantitative real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology. Analysts are looking for the presence of the Y chromosome, which only males have. If the Y chromosome is present, then the baby is a boy; if it is not present, then it’s a girl!
Q: Does this test work for twins?
A: This test has not been validated for multi-fetal pregnancies. If you are expecting twins or other multiples, we suggest relying instead on ultrasound and ultrasound 4D for determination of your babies’ sexes.
Q: Does the Peekaboo test offer an accuracy guarantee?
A: We know how important this test is to you and promise to provide the earliest, fastest, and most accurate gender DNA-test result on the market. We’re so confident in the accuracy of the Peekaboo test that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if the gender of your newborn doesn’t match your result.
Q: How are urine-based gender predictor tests different?
A: There are no sex hormones in urine, and the presence of sex hormones is necessary for any reliable and scientifically-sound gender test. The Peekaboo early gender reveal test is a DNA test, and DNA does contain sex hormones. Peekaboo analysis looks for the presence of the Y chromosome in the DNA contained in the mother’s blood, which determines whether the mother is having a boy or a girl. This is the most reliable, scientifically-proven, and accurate process for early gender detection.
