  • Have sex on the day of ovulation, doggie style. It worked for us!

  • Without medical intervention of sorting the sperm, all methods give you the exact same chance. 50-50.

  • Not really. The male determines the sex of the baby. If he contributes more female sperm than male sperm, making it more likely for female sperm to survive and reach the egg, there is nothing you can do about that. Some research suggests that if you have sex close to ovulation, you will be more likely to have a girl because female sperm are more study than male sperm and the vagina is most acidic just before ovulation (killing off more male sperm than female making it more likely that a female sperm will survive and reach the egg). Using the same method to try to have a boy doesn't sound like it would work to me.

    There is really no sure-fire way of attempting to have one gender or the other short of genetic engineering, dispite what people tell you worked for them.

  • I read that havinbg sex closer to ovulation, or the day of, is better to have a BOY b/c the boy sperm swim faster, however the girl sperm live longer. So if you have sex prior to ovulation, if the boy sperm die off, you'd have a girl. The closer to ovulation the better to help increase the chances of a boy.
