According to ObGyn.net, Dr. Saad Ramzi's method is using placenta /chorionic villi location as a marker for fetal gender detection at 6 weeks gestation and accoring to some studies, was found to be highly reliable.
Is Ramzi Theory accurate?
It's claimed that using this theory to predict your baby's sex is over 97% accuracy. Woah!
One study by ObGyn.net found that this method correctly predicts the fetus gender in 97.2% of males and 97.5% of females early in the first trimester. And it might be helpful to use as a genetic soft marker in relation with fetal pyelectasis.
Despite the bold claims, gender prediction theories are only supposed to be a bit of fun. Don't deck out the nursery just yet!
When is best to use Ramzi Theory?
It's best to determine at your 6-8 week scan. For 12 weeks plus, you're better off trying the nub theory.
You can request to find out your baby's sex during your mid-pregnancy ultrasound, which is technically done between 16-20 weeks.
