  • No proven methods. It's up to your husbands sperm.

  • Depends on the fastest swimmer. ;) I don't think there is any proven methods either. But you have about a 50/50 shot of having a boy this time. GL

  • I've heard having sex less often. Male sperm are slower swimmers. If you have sex alot,the female ones get the upper hand

  • i've heard that males are the faster swimmers, but they die quicker. so right as you're ovulating, do the dirty deed. if you want a girl, have sex a day or two beforehand, so the males will mostly have died off, and just the female sperm is less. might want to google that, since we both heard two different things ;)

  • No PROVEN way. Just be happy you if you can have a second.

  • There's no guarantee, but have sex a day or two after ovulation.
