Do Sex Positions Determine Baby Gender Or Sex?
I get a lot of questions about sexual or intercourse positions and how this influences baby gender (if you do become pregnant after intercourse.) The truth is, sexual positions can influence your baby's sex, but just using this one method alone is sometimes not enough. There are other things that you can combine with this to increase your odds of getting the gender and the results that you want. I'll discuss this more in the following article.
You Only Have To Alter Your Intercourse Positions When You're Actually Trying To Conceive (And This Is A Very Short Window): A lot of people will write to me and ask which sexual positions to use if they want a boy or a girl. (The short answer is shallow penetration for a girl and deeper penetration for a boy. However there are many exceptions and considerations.) Often, the reader will think that they have to carry this out for the whole month and they become frustrated with the process and eventually decide to just let nature take it's course.
It's important to understand that you only need to be careful about the positions that you use as your ovulation approaches (which many people know as the fertility window where you can become pregnant. ) This generally last for about five days. But, for the other 25 or so days of the month, you don't need to worry about this.
How Do I Know When Is The Right Day To Try To Conceive?: So now I've talked about not worrying about positioning until when you hit your fertility window. But, how do you know when this takes place? Well, that depends on whether you want a male or a female baby. If you want a daughter, you want to try to conceive 3 days before you actually ovulate. But for a male conception, you'll want to wait until you get a positive reading that ovulation has actually taken place. The easiest way to know this without guessing is to get yourself a high quality ovulation predictor. (I personally think saliva works best, especially if you want a girl because you have to know your window well in advance.) Each way requires you to become very active when you reach your target days and then to stop. Don't go in too early or too late.
What Else Can I Do To Influence My Baby's Gender?: One other suggestion that I can give you is to ready your body by readying your vaginal pH. The reason that you use deep penetration when you want a boy is because the Y sperm that produces these little guys is vulnerable and weak. So if you take sperm that is already on shaky ground and meet it with acid, that is not going to be a good scenario (which is what you want if you're going for a daughter.) So for a female baby, you'll want to raise your pH, but if a son is your goal, you'll want to lower it.
These things are achieved through either acidic or alkaline diets and / or by douching with different solutions. PH testers can make quick work of this and can show you where your starting point is and how aggressive you need to be until your ready to begin tracking your ovulation and formulating your regimen.
I've put together a few websites that take a lot of the guess work out of choosing your baby's gender. You'll find step by step instructions, resources for douche recipes and food PH lists, information on when to conceive, tips, support, and examples of ovulation predictors / PH testing strips.

I heard from a woman who had just learned that the timing of her sexual intercourse (as it relates to ovulation) could have an influence on her baby's gender. And, since she thought she may have already conceived, she wanted to know which gender was more likely. She said, in part: "I have been checking for ovulation for the last three weeks. This morning, I actually got a positive. So, I woke my husband up and we had sex."
Most of the questions that I get about choosing your baby's gender concern specifics regarding your regimen before you attempt to have sex in order to conceive. Occasionally though, I hear from someone who has already had what they hope is conception sex and who is, after the fact, trying to influence their baby's gender.
I heard from someone who said, in part "I really want a girl baby. But looking back at my cycle, I'm realizing with a sinking heart that I had sex on my ovulation day and I know that this means that a boy is more likely. I am crushed by this. My question is whether anyone has ever had sex on their ovulation day and still had a girl?"
I often hear from couples who want to have sex very frequently in an attempt to become pregnant. They figure that since each instance of intercourse gives them a chance to conceive, why not have intercourse as often as possible so that you will have many separate chances to successfully become pregnant. And many couples do have success with this method. But what happens if you have a preference as to which gender you conceive?
I heard from someone who said: "my husband and I are trying to have a boy baby. I've read that we should limit sex until the day that we try to conceive and then have sex as much as we can on the conception day. Is this correct? Is it possible to have too much or too little sex when trying to conceive?" I will try to address these concerns in the following article.
I sometimes hear from couples who are trying to gauge the right time of the month to try to conceive a girl or a boy baby. For whatever reason, many seem to see "the end of the month" as an optimal time. I often hear comments like: "if I have sex and conceive at the end of the month, will I get a girl or a boy baby? What date is best?"
I recently heard from a someone who asked me, in part: "We are trying to conceive a boy baby. I have been told and have read that boy sperm are weaker. And I had a friend suggest that because of this, I should try to conceive in the morning since a man is said to have a higher sperm count in the morning. She also said that she'd heard that men have higher quality sperm after a good night's sleep and after abstaining from sex for the hours that they are asleep. Is all of this true?
'm often asked what foods should be avoided when you're attempting gender selection at home or are trying to chose your baby's gender without an expensive clinic. I'm often asked questions like "what foods should I eliminate from my diet if I'm trying to chose my baby's gender or trying to conceive a boy or a girl?" The answer to that question depends on which gender you are trying for.
