  • We tried with a boy for our second and it didn't work for us. Oh well.

  • No, it doesn't. Countless researchers have tried to recreate the results Shettles claimed and failed.

    Yes, couples use his method and conceive the gender they'd hoped for, but it has nothing to do with the Shettles method. They'd have had that gender regardless.

  • Worked twice for us. Could have been a fluke or could have been shettle's working. IDK and don't really care because we have our boy and girl and are happy. I would like to see the other researchers stuff though desert diva because I saw 2 studies while I was researching shettle's that verified shettle's data.

  • i hear you...
    i want to try again soon but they say as long as your PH level is very low your chances of conceiving a girl is way more acurate...
    but i dont want to try untill after my wedding day...
    i have been checking my Ph level for the past month and ive had no luck with color change im more or less still in the boy zone..
    not happy about that.
    but never know maybe ill get lucky and my wish will finally come true..
    till then im stuck with my two little prince charmings
