New research shows that when babies are conceived through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) the odds of having a boy are decreased. However, researchers are unclear why ICSI is reducing the amount of male births. ICSI is more typically used when male infertility is a factor or when there's an unexplained case of infertility in couples. Researchers, led by Dr. Barbara Luke of Michigan State University note that, "because our findings suggest that ICSI may reduce the sex ratio, we recommend that ICSI only be done if medically necessary, in an effort to prevent this potential side effect." Public health should not be affected by these findings; i.e. a rash of more females than males born because researchers also concluded that ICSI accounts for only a small number of births. If you're undergoing fertility treatments and want a boy though you may want to discuss other possible fertility treatments with your doc. *Source
