Hello, Ms. Dyna Yani. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Identification of the sex of the fetus can generally be done at around 16-20 weeks of gestation. Investigations that can help identify the sex of the fetus are uterine ultrasonography (USG). Doctors identify the sex of the fetus based on the appearance of the penis and scrotum in men, or labia in women. Labia appear as 3 lines so that it signifies the female sex. Meanwhile, a visible penis can be a reference to the male sex of the fetus, but if the penis is not visible, the fetus is not necessarily definitely not male. This is because there are several factors that affect the accuracy of visualization of the genitals of the fetus, including the position of the fetus, the amount of amniotic fluid, and the thickness of the abdominal wall.
Do not hesitate to consult directly with a specialist obstetric and gynecologist who treats you regarding the results of an ultrasound obstetric examination. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
