  • I's accurate 50% of the time. Toss a coin instead, it's easier.

  • As the PP said, it's 50% accurate. There is no way to choose gender, regardless of what certain companies claim.

  • Well it predicted that I would have a son, but so did my mom. Like everyone else said, 50/50 chance of getting it right.

  • It was correct for my son and wrong for my daughter. I used the Shettle's method to increase our chances of conceiving a son and daughter and got what I wanted both times. It is not 100%, but it is scientifically based and helps to increase the chances of one or the other.

  • It has a 50/50 chance everytime, but failed on all four of my kids. You stand a better chance for a boy if you have sex after you've ovulated. Male sperm are faster swimmers, but don't live as long. You can try the Shettle's method, just understand there is no guarantee.

  • It wasn't right for me. It said I was having a boy & it's a girl! The only way to guarantee a specific sex is to do IVF with PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis). When they remove your eggs, they fertilize them and with PGD they test them for genetic abnormalities & the sex. Then you can have a specific sex embryo implanted. BUT, there is no guarantee it will implant. There is about a 24% chance each time you do implantation.

  • ~*Giggles*~ be me??? All I can seem to make are boys, and I tried everything to have a little girl...

    I tease my boys, "God knew how much mommy loved boys, that is why he gave her so many to raise"... Hahahaha!!!

  • Scient is the only thing I didn't try... would need to check your ovulations, and when you have sex... the closer to ovulation is supposed to be more likely to be a boy, and since sperm lives up to 7 days, the male die faster for whatever reason, and more likely if few days before ovulation to be a girl

    Which is funny considering I heard women I knew that rarely had sex with their hubbys had girls and those with male did itmore with hubby.. don't think this is anything but "Funny"
