Q. Are early gender scans accurate, and if so, why won't my doctor's office do a gender scan at 15 weeks?
A. Depending on the experience of the sonographer, the gender of a baby can almost always be determined by 15 weeks. Before 15 weeks, a fetus (both male and female) has a gentital tubercle, also known as the "nub" that protrudes between the legs. Our sonographers do not "guess" the gender before 15 weeks. By 15 weeks, male or female genitalia can be identified in most cases. Our commitment to providing accurate scans helps us remain a reputable facility.
