Q: I’m not 7 weeks pregnant yet. Can I buy the test now and then use it later?
A: Yes, you can! Just be sure to leave the plastic wrap on the box and use it any time before the expiration date printed on the kit.
Q: How fast do I get my Peekaboo kit, and is shipping included in the price?
A: All shipping is included in the price of the kit. The kit is sent to you via fast 2-day shipping and your kit includes a 2-day airbill for returning your sample to the lab for testing.
Q: What is the science behind the Peekaboo early gender reveal test?
A: DDC scientists isolate cell-free fetal DNA from the mother’s blood, followed by amplification of both Y-chromosome and autosomal-specific regions using the latest quantitative real-time PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology. Analysts are looking for the presence of the Y chromosome, which only males have. If the Y chromosome is present, then the baby is a boy; if it is not present, then it’s a girl! Learn more about PCR.
Q: How are urine-based gender predictor tests different?
A: There are no sex hormones in urine, and the presence of sex hormones is necessary for any reliable and scientifically-sound gender test. The Peekaboo early gender reveal test is a DNA test, and DNA does contain sex hormones. Peekaboo analysis looks for the presence of the Y chromosome in the DNA contained in the mother’s blood, which determines whether the mother is having a boy or a girl. This is the most reliable, scientifically-proven, and accurate process for early gender detection.
Q: Does this test work for twins?
A: This test has not been validated for multi-fetal pregnancies. If you are expecting twins or other multiples, we suggest relying instead on ultrasound and ultrasound 4D for determination of your babies’ sexes.
