  • Not very good. It is all up to the sperm from your SO.

  • Really depends. I have a friend that has 3 boys and no girls so there really is no telling.

  • My next door neighbor has 6 boys--she kept trying for a girl and finally gave up.

  • You know it really is just in Gods hands. I have two girls and really would love to try for a little boy. I know that I have a 50/50 chance having another girl. If it is meant for you to have a little boy then it will happen. If you have another girl then that is Gods plan for you. Good luck and enjoy your sweet children!

  • I have 2 boys and lost a son last december. I have always read that if you want a boy - have sex prior to ovulating and during ovulation....the male sperm swim slower.

  • Actually the male sperm swim faster and have a shorter life expectancy then the female sperm. Male sperm live about 24 hours. So yes to the sex right at the time of ovulation. Female sperm are mobile for about 72 hours and are slower swimmers :)

  • I depends on your SO, and the day his swimmers entered you. If it was during your peak ovulation time, the male swimmers can swim faster than the female swimmers to the egg because the fluid is very watery. If it was a few days before/after your ovulation, the female swimmers can swim faster than the male swimmers becasue the fluid is thicker.

    I know this sounds funny, but I read it in "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" ...

  • It just depends. I have an Aunt that had seven boys and then had a girl. Don't think I would want to try that long! but I guess she did.
