    How to Conceive a Boy

    Have intercourse one to two days before ovulation.
    Have an orgasm during intercourse, which causes an alkaline environment – favoring the male sperm. Contractions during the orgasm will also serve as a “wave” to carry the male sperm towards the egg.
    Penetration from behind, with a woman on her hands and knees. This will help the male sperm to be closer to the egg for fertilization.
    Have your male partner drink something caffeinated just before intercourse.
    Douche with water and baking soda prior to intercourse

  • BTW

    We already have two girls, and he loves them. It's not a macho male issue he just wants to carry on his name cause he's the last male in his family.

  • Male sperm lives for 3 days, female lives for 5. So, if you begin ovulation on the 20th, Start TTC the 20th and you will have a better chance at having a boy, being that the male sperm is faster and stronger. It you start TTC on the 16th and ovulate on the 20th, the male sperm will die before u ovulate...

    I was told this by a doctor at a fertility clinic BTW

  • We got a son by having sex less. The female sperm are stronger,so the more you do it,the higher the concentration of females sperm are in each ejaculate.Do it less and give the males time to regroup!

  • There is no way to make sure you get a son. You just get what you get :)

  • If you want to be for sure to get a boy, adopt one. I know it probably isn't the idea you had but you can still give him your last name and you will be saving a baby from a life time of foster homes and the like...Just an idea.
