  • Make sure you have sex a couple days before you ovulate since the X sperm is slower than the Y sperm or so I have heard.

  • Well you have a 50/50 chance lol. Te female sperms are slower than the males and supposedly if you have sex a few days before ovulating or RIGHT at ovulation, you have a better chance at geting a girl. I read this in What To Expect When You're Trying to Conceive. I did it and it worked. I had a boy the first time and I have no idea when I ovulated with him.

  • Learn to chart. See how many fertile mucus days you have each month. Once you know your cycle well enough then time intercourse 2 days before ovulation.

    You can also do things to make your body more acidic versus alkaline because female sperm are stronger and acidic PH kills off male sperm faster.

    This is based on the Shuttle's Method which has been found to be more than 80% effective.

    I've used it twice. Once for a girl and once for a boy. Worked both times.

    ***There is SOME evidence that the EGG actually decides which TYPE of sperm it will allow to fertilize the egg in which case the Shuttle's Method would not work but it's worked for me and LOTS of other couples at an 80% + sucess rate.

  • Make love with your husband until you get pregnant, and you have a 50 % chance of it being a girl.... :)

  • Shettles suggests that if you are trying to conceive a girl, shallow penetration from your partner, preferably with the missionary position, will deposit the sperm closer to the entrance to the vagina. This area is more acidic than closer to the cervix and acidity will work against the weaker “boy” sperm leaving more “girl” sperm available to fertilize your egg.
