Forget the 20-Week Ultrasound, Take an At-Home Gender Test!

What isn't an at-home test these days? Over-the-counter kits allow women to check their fertility, and now one even claims to determine your fetus's sex. The Intelligender Gender Prediction Test ($35) was created by two moms of a combined seven children who wanted to find out the sex of their babies as early as possible. The company's website boasts that the urine test can be taken as early as six weeks after a missed period (14 weeks before ultrasounds usually determine the gender) and results come within 10 minutes. Chemicals contained in the kit cause the sample to turn yellow or orange for a girl, and a smoky green for a boy. The test isn't foolproof, so parents-to-be still need to confirm their findings with a doctor. Would you buy this product?

It is a joke. My son bought a gender test for my daughter in law.It came up boy and when she had the ultrasound it clearly showed a girl. A waste of $30. Don't waste your money.

what a joke! it's "results" should not be tested. i didn't take one, but a ton of women on my birth board did and guess what, only half were right!

oh that's too bad it didn't work. i think it would be neat to find out at home, in private. it bugs me that the medical staff knows before i do and they can't always tell (if baby is in a certain position).

It was wrong for me and a few other people who were due the same month as I was.

I guarantee that this test will be right 50% of the time!!! Seriously people, this is a straight up scam. With current medical technologies, there is NO way to determine the gender of your unborn child from your urine. I cringe whenever I hear that someone actually buys one of these things.
