  • Umm you can't lol.. You could try real hard but you'll probably end up in disappointment. Should gender really matter though? No offense but i think its just weird to ask this.. But i hurd something about the Shuttles method err whatever look it up on google it might help you :)

  • I agree with PP, there is no way to do this. The baby's gender is determined by the make up of the single sperm that fertilizes your egg. And, really, a healthy baby is way more important then if the child is a boy or a girl.

  • It can only be done through IVF with PGD (Pre-implantation Diagnosis). After they fertilize your eggs with your Husbands sperm, they test them genetically & you have the choice of which sex is implanted in you if you want.

  • There isn't one. You can try to have sex a day or two after you ovulate as male sperm tend to be faster swimmers, but there is no 100% guaranteed way to have a boy naturally. IVF and PGD. That's it and even that is not 100%.
