  • People will tell you there are ways to conceive a boy. But truthfully it is 50/50 chance of getting a boy or girl.

  • louise2 is right. you are going to get a bunch of people on here who will tell you to have sex certain ways, at certain times or to eat certain foods. NONE of these determine gender. Sperm do. It is 50/50.

  • Male sperm does swim faster than female sperm, and female sperm lives longer than male sperm.
    So is "suggested" (but there's no guarentee) that you should have sex as close to ovulation as possible if you want a greater possibility of having a boy.
    You'll get A LOT of useful information fromt he book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"
    Also, here's 2 web-sites you can check out:
