  • The only thing I've heard that makes any sense scientifically is that due to girl sperm and boy sperm being of different make-ups, they survive better in different acidities, and the girl sperm are slower. So for a girl you should have sex 4-5 days before ovulation, and for a boy you should have sex 1-2 days before.

    That being said, I conceived my son and my daughter both two days before ovulation. So do what you will.

  • Chinese birth chart was accurate for us. But its not for everyone. Your chances are 50-50 honestly no matter what you do : )

  • Honestly, there isn't any way to guarantee it unless you could talk a lab into separating your husband's sperm and then get artificially inseminated. Otherwise, you're always taking your chances.
