SneakPeek is clinically proven to be 99.1% accurate.

The SneakPeek test is accurate any time from 8 weeks into pregnancy to birth. SneakPeek looks for Y chromosomes in the fetal DNA found in mom's blood. The amount of fetal DNA increases the further mom is in her pregnancy, so the test can be taken with accurate results starting at 8 weeks until birth. Not sure if you'e at 8 weeks yet? Use our easy test eligibility calculator to double check.

SneakPeek looks for male DNA in the fetal DNA found in mom's blood sample. In the case of identical twins, if male DNA is found, then both babies are boys. If no male DNA is found, then both babies are girls. For fraternal twins, finding male DNA means at least one baby is a boy, but cannot distinguish if the second is a boy or girl.

Clinical studies have shown that fetal DNA clears rapidly from the maternal bloodstream, within 1-2 days. Therefore, a miscarriage will not affect your current test results.

During pregnancy, cell-free fetal DNA is released by the placenta and can be found in mom’s bloodstream. Using a small sample of mom’s blood, SneakPeek tests for the presence of male DNA (Y-chromosomes). Y-chromosomes would only be present if mom is pregnant with a boy. If no Y-chromosomes are found, mom is carrying a girl. This method is known as noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and is safe for both mom and baby. See the peer-reviewed published study that indicates this test is 99.1% accurate as early as 8 weeks into pregnancy in the International Journal of Pregnancy and Childbirth (Int J Pregn & Chi Birth. 2019; 5(4):135-137).

With SneakPeek At-Home, you receive a test kit that provides everything you need to take the test, from the comfort of your home. Three lancets are included that you use to prick your finger to collect 7-10 drops of blood in a small test tube. The sample is then mailed back to SneakPeek Labs for analysis. This video shows the SneakPeek At-Home process from beginning to end.

SneakPeek Clinical lets you visit a participating location to have your blood drawn in a clinical setting. The clinic then sends your sample to SneakPeek Labs for analysis. See our SneakPeek Clinical page to find a location near you.

SneakPeek is a DNA test that looks for male chromosomes in the cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) found in mom's blood, a process that was first established in 1997 and refined in a multitude of scientific publications since. Urine-based tests have no scientific validity, as there are no gender markers in urine. See this blog post for more details.

With SneakPeek Standard, you'll receive your gender results 5-7 business days after ordering your test kit. With SneakPeek FastTrack, you'll receive gender results within 72 hours of ordering your test kit. These timelines are subject to mailing prior to daily postal cut-offs and proximity to SneakPeek Labs.

The SneakPeek Early Gender DNA Test is a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT), and it's safe for both mom and baby.

SneakPeek cannot confirm pregnancy. The test looks for male chromosomes in the fetal DNA found in mom's blood. If there is no fetal DNA in mom's blood, the test will return a girl result, because mom is a girl. On the off-chance that the test is contaminated with outside male DNA (even pets!), it may return a boy result. Please confirm pregnancy with your doctor prior to taking SneakPeek.

Yes you can! The test kit is good for a year, with an expiration date at the bottom of every box. Just leave the plastic wrap on, and only open the kit when you're ready to take the test.

Due to the nature of our product which requires it to be free of contamination from outside sources of DNA, we have always ensured our products are fully sterilized and hermetically sealed before being sent to our customers, and continue to do so with rigorous QA standards.

Of course, we’re watching out for the health of our team members, especially those sending packages to our customers, and encouraging anyone experiencing cold or respiratory illnesses to stay home and rest.

Yes, your results are still reliable! Even if a doctor’s dating scan places you as early as 6 weeks into pregnancy when you took the SneakPeek test, you can still trust your results. A scientific study was conducted that showed SneakPeek was 99.1% accurate in determining fetal sex for babies who were 8 weeks into gestational age. In this study, LMP was one of the measures used to establish 8 weeks, so if you were at least 8 weeks into pregnancy using LMP, you can rely on your results.

Clinical studies have shown that fetal DNA clears rapidly from the maternal bloodstream, within 1-2 days. Therefore, a miscarriage will not affect your current test results.

SneakPeek is a DNA-based test, so hormone medications and fluctuations have no impact on results.

Clinical studies have shown that fetal DNA is undetectable in mom’s bloodstream between 1 to 2 days after birth. Therefore, a previous male-bearing pregnancy will not affect your current test results.

Yes, you can! SneakPeek looks for male DNA in the fetal DNA found in mom's blood. In the case of identical triplets (or more!), the presence of male DNA means all three babies are boys. The absence of male DNA means all three babies are girls. For fraternal triplets, finding male DNA means at least one baby is a boy, but the test cannot confirm if the others are boys or girls.

SneakPeek looks only for the presence of Y chromosomes and is extremely sensitive and accurate. No blood thinners or other drugs are known to impact SneakPeek gender results.

Yes! See our test eligibility calculator. You can take the SneakPeek Test when you are 8 weeks into pregnancy, which is 8 weeks after the first day of your Last Menstrual Period (LMP), or 32 weeks before your Estimated Due Date (EDD). The test eligibility calculator makes it easy to see if you're eligible.

To take SneakPeek, you must be at least 8 weeks into pregnancy, which can be calculated using either the first day of your last menstrual period, or baby's estimated due date. This test eligibility calculator makes it easy!

At SneakPeek, meeting promised turnaround times for gender results for our customers is a top priority, and we are continuing with business as usual to process samples in a timely manner. We have always been committed to the health and safety of our lab personnel, and continue to uphold our protective practices to the highest level. SneakPeek Labs is fully disinfected twice a day; some stations multiple times throughout the day. Our lab personnel wear personal protective equipment at all times, including face masks, latex gloves, lab coats, and goggles, and blood samples are discarded in regulated biohazard waste bins that are removed by a professional hazardous waste removal company.

We understand this is a difficult situation and time, and thank you for placing your trust in us. We are continuing to ensure we meet our promise to our customers as well as protecting the health and safety of our personnel. 

SneakPeek recommends bringing your return package to a local post office to reduce the chance that your sample will be exposed to extreme temperatures of below 40°F or above 90°F for an extended period of time, which can damage it. However, these are also viable alternate ways to return your sample:

  • Schedule a time and location for your package to be picked up through the USPS site: https://tools.usps.com/schedule-pickup-steps.htm.
  • Drop off your package in a USPS bin or in your mailbox. Be sure to check pick-up times to ensure your sample isn’t exposed to extended periods of below 40°F temperature.

SneakPeek is very aware of the health implications associated with the COVID-19 virus, and we’re following best practices in line with the latest updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and government agencies.

SneakPeek products are shipped from San Diego, California, and are manufactured in North America. Due to the nature of our product which requires it to be free of contamination from outside sources of DNA, we have always ensured our products are fully sterilized and hermetically sealed before being sent to our customers, and continue to do so with rigorous QA standards.

Of course, we’re watching out for the health of our team members, especially those sending packages to our customers, and encouraging anyone experiencing cold or respiratory illnesses to stay home and rest.

Thank you for your trust in SneakPeek. We understand this is a difficult situation and time, and are continuing to ensure all products sent to our customers are fully sanitized, sealed, and safe to use. 

SneakPeek remains fully operational and on time, but slower USPS mail service may delay some shipments to you, or your sample back to our labs.
  • SneakPeek Standard is shipped by Priority Mail and may be delayed by 1-2 days each way.
  • SneakPeek FastTrack is shipped by Priority Mail Express and is not affected.
See information from the USPS site here. We thank you for your patience and understanding, and we hope to return to normal mail delivery service time soon.
