  • I did lots of looking into gender choosing.

    I wouldn't suggest paying money for something like going to a special clinic though.

    have sex 1-2 days BEFORE you ovulate, not after. the sperm that make girls swim slower but live longer, the sperm for boys swim faster but die sooner. so if you have sex before you ovulate, the girly sperm will make it to the egg in time for it to implant and the boy sperm won't have survived long enough to make it to the egg.

  • Eek, no. That's a scary thought. Slippery slope if you ask me.

  • you can try the shettles method, it's a natural way to try and choose the gender. As for actually trying to seperate girl and boy sperm in a lab... I don't know and don't recommend it.

  • shettles isn't done in a clinic... it's all about having sex at certain times etc.
