How do you tell if a baby is a boy or girl from scan?
The baby’s sex is determined at conception by the father’s Y chromosome. The external genitals are neutral. Under the effect of the hormone testosterone, the large labias become the scrotum and the clitoris enlarges to become the penis. This does not occur until 8 weeks of pregnancy. Before 10 weeks of pregnancy, the genitalia look exactly the same, over 10 weeks the scrotum and penis become recognisable but remains small.
Your consultant will use their experience and skills to determine which genitalia your baby has from the gender scan.
