Frequently Asked Questions
A: With Peekaboo, all that is required for testing is a small blood sample from the mother. The blood sample can be provided as early as 6 weeks into a pregnancy. Our all-female lab technicians will carefully handle your sample, throughout every step of the early gender testing process.
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!
A: Peekaboo offers the earliest gender detection of any DNA-based test and can be performed as soon as 6 weeks into the pregnancy with over 99% accuracy.* 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.
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).
A: We know how important this test is to you and promise to provide the earliest, fastest, and most accurate gender test result on the market. The Peekaboo Gender reveal test is the only early gender test endorsed by the American Pregnancy Association. The American Pregnancy Association (APA) is a world leader in pregnancy health, education, and advocacy.
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.
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.

A: We totally understand, and we have a few options for you. If you’d prefer, you can have a female friend help (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 easier 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, consider Peekaboo PRO. You can use our Clinic Locator to find a clinic near you to collect your sample. Can’t find a provider? Call our Peekaboo Support team to see what other local options we can offer: 1.800.681.6731
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 gender reveal party until you have your test report in hand.
A: There are 5 steps we recommend following prior to sample collection with Peekaboo baby gender testing products.
- 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.
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.
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.
A: A pregnant mom’s urine contains no fetal sex-specific characteristics, such as fetal DNA or hormones. Any urine test that claims predict your baby’s gender is likely inaccurate. 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.
A: There are many wives’ tales that claim to predict a baby’s sex. Some examples include the baking soda gender test, the red cabbage gender test, the wedding ring gender test, and more. While these at home tests can be a fun experiment to try, they have no scientific merit and are no better at gender prediction than a mother’s natural instinct.
When it comes to determining the gender of a baby during pregnancy, the only reliable methods include a diagnostic test like the Peekaboo Early Gender DNA Test, a prenatal screening such as NIPT testing, or an ultrasound scan.
