  • oh good. I am looking into it to try for a girl...we have 2 boys so it would be amazing to have a little girl to add to the family. Thank you so much.

  • My boy and my girl were both conceived immediately before ovulation.

  • Supposedly it's not quite as helpful when trying for a girl (trying for a boy can be up to 85% or so) but it certainly can't hurt to tip the scales in your favor. You just have to be absolutely sure of when you ovulate.

  • I did for both...worked both times...you MUST chart though to know how many fertile days you have in order for it to work the best.

    The Shettles method is a method to "in a way" choose the sex of the baby...or lean the scales in the direction you want a little more. It tells you when and how often to have intercourse to make the chances of the sex of the baby more in your favor.

    I think I heard the same thing JulieJacobKyle. I am JUST starting out with all this and I dont even want to ttc until I get EVERYTHING as accurate as possible, this way I know without a doubt that I did everything I could to improve our chances..
