Rav Akiva Eiger (hagaos to Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh De’ah 18:12) says that if someone can only resolve one of the s’feikos of a sfeik s’feika, he is not obligated to do so. Only if he can resolve both s’feikos is he obligated to investigate. Thus, even according to the Rokeach, one need not find out whether the fetus is a male or female since this will not clarify both s’feikos.
