Does anyone know if it is true that some people cannot carry either boys or girls?

I have never ever heard that. I gave birth to a total of 4 boys but I never once had the thought that it was because I could not carry a girl.

What would the sex of the baby have to do with it?  Hormones or something?  The sex of the baby is not determined at the time of conception.

What exactly do you mean by this? Do you mean the doctor can't tell if the fetus is male or female? Or do you mean something else?

From the moment of conception the fetus is either male or female. If the sperm that fertalizes the egg carried the X chromosome it will be female, if it carries the Y chromosome it will be male.

Quoting Susan262:

What would the sex of the baby have to do with it?  Hormones or something?  The sex of the baby is not determined at the time of conception.


Thank you TheGreatCthulhu for the siggy!!!!

At 19 I have my daughter and then at 23 I had my son. My mom had 3 boys before she had me and on my husbands side they all had girls before having a boy.

I highly doubt there is someone out there who happens to just miscarry only girls or boys and tho if there is its a coincidence
