  • there are a whole bunch of old wives tales out there, but they arent true... sorry, there is nothing you can do to increase the odds of a boy... and from what i've recently read, science has now even found that its much more likely to have a girl... i sincerly hope you are blessed with a boy, but i also wish you the best on whichever you are lucky to have.. happy and healthy

  • go to a fertility clinic and have his stuff spun. It cost a bit more then most.

  • male sperm swims slower than female sperm. i swear this is what the fertility doctor told my cousin. so he should be in a position that allows him to go as far in as he can. no guarantees but it might help level the playing field some...won't do you any good at all though if he's just got girl sperm.

  • Not only are male sperm slower swimmers, but they have a shorter life span than female sperm. Monitor your ovulation and limit sex to the day before and of ovulation. Having sex several days before ovulation means the male sperm will die off and it is more likely that female sperm will fertiliaze your egg.
