  • conception doest happen till a fewdays after sex. the seprm has to go trhu the cervix. and well the crvix is a very acidic place. thats why a woman only has 20% change of getting pregnant each month. when a man ejaculates he puts millions of sperms inside of oyuw. girls sperms are slow but strong while male sper is fast but weak. thats why ifa woman has sex a few days prior to ovulaton she has more of a change of aving a girl and if a woman has sex the day prior, or the day of ovulation she is most likely yo conceive a boy

  • the day that sperm meets for what piwife said...thats not true at all! the gender of the baby depends on if the male gives off a x or y jean it has nothing to do with the day you ovulate!!

  • You can conceive the day you have sex if the egg is already in the falopian tube, but usually it takes maybe a day or more, and yes there are some things that can support the conception of one sex over another, but it is still whoever gets there first, male sperm are small and fast but die easily these are sperm carying y chormosone, and femal sperm ar big slower but relisilent and live longer they carry the x chromosone, so usually the closer to ovulation the better your chance of having a boy because they can make it to the tubes faster but they can't wait around as long as female sperm do.
