Can The Sex Of The Fetus At 28 Weeks Still Change?
good afternoon doctor, my pregnancy is 7 months in the 28th week, the sex of the baby can be differentiated, for the examination yesterday I saw that my fetus is male, my question is whether the fetus at this age can change to the age of birth. ?
Hello Weni, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The sex of the fetus can indeed be seen at the time of ultrasound but this result does not guarantee 100% accurate so it cannot be used as a primary reference what is the sex of your child, this is due to the similarity of shapes at the time of ultrasound between male and female sexes can occur. Even so, basically the sex of a fetus will not change since it was first formed and has been genetically determined.
The best and most accurate sex determination is when the fetus is born and is examined directly by the doctor in the area of his sex organs.
Therefore, even if you trust the results of your ultrasound regarding the determination of your child's gender, but keep in mind that these results are not necessarily accurate and the same as when your child was born later.
I hope this helps.
