  • There is no way to get a boy, it might come out as a girl. You can try for a boy, but only God can decide. Maybe pray?

  • IVF can take anywhere from months to years. Cost depends on where you live. No guarantee that it'll work. IVF can't guarantee you a sex. They just implant embryos in your body. If you really want a boy, adopt one. There are thousands in foster care waiting for homes.

  • I went to to find out how and when is the best time to try for a babyboy. You shouldgo there and read about it. Its not always positive. But at least you can try and hope.
