Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the Peekaboo Early Gender DNA Test work?
A: With the Peekaboo At-Home Gender Test, all that is required for testing is a small blood sample from the mother. Simply order a kit right to your home, collect your sample with either our traditional Lancet version, or upgrade to the virtually pain-free Peekaboo Click version. Send it back in our pre-paid envelope, and get your results as soon as the very next day!
Our all-female lab technicians will carefully handle your sample, every step of the way. Using the latest technology, we extract fetal DNA in the mom’s bloodstream, which appears in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Then, we can detect if that fetal DNA contains the male (Y) chromosome, indicating that you’re expecting a boy! If not, you’re pregnant with a baby girl!
Q: How early in pregnancy can the Peekaboo Early Gender DNA Test be performed?
A: Peekaboo offers the earliest gender detection of any DNA-based test and can be performed as soon as 6 weeks into the pregnancy. As world leaders in DNA testing, our superior equipment and testing methodology make this possible. Use the Eligibility Calculator on this page to see when you can test. The test is not validated for earlier than 6 weeks. Learn more about the science.
Q: How fast do I get my Peekaboo kit and what about shipping?
A: Shipping is free, and orders placed before 4:30pm Eastern ship same day! Peekaboo Standard kits will arrive within 2-5 business days (not including weekends). Peekaboo Lancet Express and Peekaboo Click Express kits are sent via 1-business-day shipping. All orders include a pre-paid return shipping envelope back to our lab, with return shipping time depending on the product purchased (Standard vs. Express).
Q: Does the Peekaboo test offer an accuracy guarantee?
A: We know how important this test is to you and promise to provide the earliest, fastest, and most accurate gender DNA-test result on the market. We’re so confident in the accuracy of the Peekaboo test that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if the gender of your newborn doesn’t match your result.
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: I'm nervous about collecting my own blood. What do you suggest?
A: We totally understand, and we have a few options for you. If you’d prefer, you can have a female friend activate the lancet (a male helper could contaminate the sample, so be sure to ONLY get help from a female!). Many women find that the new Peekaboo Click or Peekaboo Click Express option is earlier to use and virtually pain-free since it collects blood from the upper arm – avoiding sensitive fingertips! If you’re still not comfortable with collecting your own sample, with Peekaboo Pro, you can use our Clinic Locator to find a clinic near you to collect your sample. Can’t find a provider?

Q: I want to have a gender-reveal party! Should I go ahead and schedule it for when my test results are due?
A: We understand Peekaboo is an important test for our customers, which is why we keep test times to a minimum. Before scheduling your gender-reveal party, please consider possible shipping delays or the need for additional sample testing. We suggest waiting to schedule your party until you have your test report in hand.
Q: What can I do to prepare for the test?
A: There are 5 steps we recommend following prior to performing the sample-collection process for the Peekaboo test.
- Hydrate well: The kit’s “Instructions for Use” recommend drinking a full 8 ounces of water 20 minutes prior to collecting your sample. This helps blood flow faster and can help to reduce collection time. Drinking water prior to collection also helps the sample to mix with the preservative in the vial more effectively. Don’t skip this essential step!
- Wash surfaces in testing area: Wash your counter or kitchen table thoroughly with water and mild soap prior to doing the collection.
- Remove plastic wrap from the Peekaboo kit before washing your hands: This ensures the kit is ready to go once you’ve washed your hands.
- Wash your hands thoroughly: Make sure to scrub every bit of your hands gently, but completely, as outlined in the kit’s “Instructions for Use;” we also suggest using a nail brush to clean under your fingernails.
- Dry your hands: Don’t use a communal kitchen towel! Instead, you can either air-dry or use a clean paper towel.

Q: I’m not 6 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: 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.
Q: How are urine-based gender predictor tests different?
A: A pregnant mom’s urine contains no fetal sex-specific characteristics, such as fetal DNA or hormones, and therefore is not an accurate method to predict your baby’s gender at all. Detection of male fetal DNA is necessary for any reliable and scientifically-sound gender test. The Peekaboo Early Gender DNA Test looks for the presence of the Y chromosome in the baby’s DNA which begins circulating in the mother’s blood very early in pregnancy, 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.
