Can the sex of the child be predicted through some tests ?

Had unprotected sex soon after my period which started 29 Dec 2010 on 2,3,4 Jan 2011. Had sex again on Jan 8 in the morning and took morning after pill 12 hrs later and finished the other pill on Jan 9 at 12pm. I had sex again on the early hrs of 14 Jan and my expected ovulation day was 10 Jan 2011. Im pregnant and dont know which day i had sex day resulted in me getting pregnant. If possible are you able to predict the sex of the child.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. A woman ovulates 14 days before menstruation, sperm can survive in the vagina for 3-5 days and the ovum can survive up to 24 hours. If your cycles are regular then one week before or one week after the day of ovulation is considered to be fertile period. So it can be the act of 14th jan which could have resulted in pregnancy. However confirmation of gestational age can be done by ultrasound uterus. The sex of child cannot be determined apart from ultrasound and it is not disclosed as it is illegal.
Hope it helps you. Regards.
