Tips On How To Conceive A Boy
Rate this Article:
Some women are only seeing blue when they are thinking of getting pregnant. If you are one of those women who really wants to conceive a boy, follow the tips below to potentially up your chances of having a son.
1. Check The Moon
If you are into old wives tales, pay attention to the stages of the moon when you are trying to conceive. According to legend, if you get pregnant on the night of a quarter moon, you will have a boy. It’s worth a shot.
2. Make Your Man Wear Boxers
Boy sperm prefer a cooler environment than girl sperm. Therefore, avoid having your man wear briefs, since this can increase the temperature of the testicles. Instead, suggest that your guy try boxers.
3. Eat Like A Man
Since boy sperm prefer an alkaline environment, make sure to eat foods that can add to the alkalinity of the vagina. This means avoiding acidic foods, and opting for more alkaline varieties. Luckily, this means eating lots of “man food”, like salty snacks, soda and red meat. Yum!
4. Have An Orgasm
We are sure that you won’t mind trying this tip. Having an orgasm increases the alkalinity of the vagina, which is good for boy sperm. The Shettles method of gender selection also endorses this as well.
5. Use The Chinese Lunar Calendar
The Chinese lunar calendar is a method of gender selection that has been used for many years in Eastern medicine. The Chinese lunar calendar uses a mother’s age at the time of conception and the month the baby is conceived is to determine what the baby’s sex will be. According to experts associated with the practice, it is up to 99% effective when done correctly.
6. Sort That Sperm
If you are looking for a more “high tech” way of gender selection, you can get your sperm sorted at a fertility clinic to increase your chances of getting the gender baby you want. The process is called MicroSort, and it is said to be 91% effective for girls and 76% effective for boys. Definitely something to think about.
7. Cough Syrup
Believe it or not, some women swear that by taking a dose of cough syrup before having sex, you can up your chances of having a baby boy. Why? Because the active ingredient in some cough syrups, guaifenesin, can thin the cervical mucus and help sperm reach the egg faster. Since boy sperm swim faster, this can help to increase your chances of having a boy.
8. Drink Coffee?
Many women swear that having your man drink a cup of coffee before sex can increase your chances of having a boy. Dr. Shettles himself agrees with this theory based on his own research, but he says he is not really sure why. Perhaps the caffeine helps those little swimmers move faster? Worth a shot for sure.Tips On How To Conceive A Boy, 4.0 out of 5 based on 1 rating
Be careful when and how you use itI bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.”
Weight Loss through Fear of EmbarrassmentWas excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.”
