Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is the Peekaboo early gender reveal test safe for my pregnancy?

A: The Peekaboo early gender blood test is absolutely safe for both pregnant women and their babies-to-be. Peekaboo products utilize a type of non-invasive prenatal testing that allows mothers to accurately determine whether they will have a boy or girl. All that is required for testing is a small blood sample from the mother.

Q: How early in pregnancy can the Peekaboo early gender blood 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 with over 99% accuracy.*. Our superior equipment and testing methodology make this possible. Use the Eligibility Calculator on this page to learn when you can determine whether you’re having a boy or girl. The Peekaboo Early Gender Test is not validated for gender prediction earlier than 6 weeks. Learn more about the science.

Q: How accurate is my result if I find out I was earlier than 6 weeks pregnant at the time of my blood draw?

A: Peekaboo early gender DNA tests may be taken as early as 6 weeks into a pregnancy or later. Accuracy at earlier times is unknown. There is an increased risk of incorrect female gender test results prior to 6 weeks’ gestation, as the fetal DNA could be below the detection limit of the assay.

Q: How fast do I get my Peekaboo Gender Test kit and what about shipping?

A: Shipping for the Peekaboo Gender Test 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). Express kits are sent via 1-business-day shipping. All at home gender test orders include a pre-paid return shipping envelope back to our lab, with return shipping time dependent on which gender prediction product was purchased (Standard vs. Express).

Q: Does the Peekaboo test offer an accuracy guarantee?

A: We know how important this gender prediction test is to you and promise to provide the earliest, fastest, and most accurate gender DNA-test results on the market. We’re so confident in the accuracy of the Peekaboo test that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if your baby’s gender doesn’t match your blood test 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. To determine the baby’s sex, analysts look 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. Learn more about the science of Peekaboo.

Q: Do gender blood tests work for twins?

A: Gender blood tests are not 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: 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 at home testing?

A: There are 5 steps we recommend following prior to performing the blood sample-collection process for the Peekaboo gender test.

  1. Hydrate well: The kit’s “Instructions for Use” recommend drinking a full 8 ounces of water 20 minutes prior to collecting your blood sample. This helps blood flow faster and can help to reduce blood test collection time. Drinking water prior to collection also helps the blood sample to mix with the preservative in the vial more effectively. Don’t skip this essential step!
  2. Wash surfaces in testing area: Wash your counter or kitchen table thoroughly with water and mild soap prior to blood test collection.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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: 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. 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 girl. This is the most reliable, scientifically-proven, and accurate process for early gender detection.

Q: How can I predict my baby's gender without a blood test?

A: There are many wives’ tales that claim to predict a baby’s sex. Some examples include the baking soda test, the red cabbage gender test, the wedding ring gender test, and more. While these at home “tests” that aim to predict a baby’s sex 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 if you’re willing to wait up to 20 weeks to find out if it’s a boy or girl, an anatomy scan via ultrasound.
