  • I'm not sure if it's actually needed, but it probably helps people want to keep trying.

  • Nope. They say if you want a boy you increase your chance by having one and if you want a girl you increase your chance by not. I don't know how true that is though.

  • Actually, you don't have to have one. But if you have one after he does, your uterus contracts which makes your cervix dip down into his "deposit", increasing your chances.

  • haha i agree with daisy! Actually, im pretty sure orgasm helps. I've heard an old wives tale that if the man orgasms before the woman, she will end up having a girl. Im skeptical about it but whatever you know. To each his own. Back to the actual question though. Having an orgasm means that your muscles are contracting in an up and down and side to side motion which means that sperm is going to travel farther faster and actually reach your egg. Good luck on trying to conceive!
