When to Conceive a Boy

I wrote this useful article with the precise purpose of providing an answer – as comprehensive as possible – to the question that occurs to many of the couples who are trying to give birth to a baby boy: WHEN is the most suitable moment to get pregnant with a male offspring? In other words, what is the moment – or time interval – in which the chances of having a male baby are the highest?

Two Methods Which Answer the Question “When to Conceive a Boy?”

Well, first and foremost, you should know that there are only two categories of gender selection methods whose main purposes are to offer answers to this question regarding the time:

  • the Timing Methods – which claim that the sexual intercourse should happen at certain times (or in some recommended periods), based on ovulation, in order to increase the chances of conceiving a boy. Unfortunately, the two best known timing strategies, Shettles and Whelan, contradict each other [1]. Moreover, the success rates of these techniques are neither scientifically proven, nor recognized by the majority of scientists and researchers. Therefore, we can say that none of these two timing methods is reliable.
  • the Calendar Method – aka Chinese Calendar Method, pretends that the likelihood of getting pregnant with a baby of an intended gender is determined by the Chinese lunar month (which differs from the common, Gregorian month) of conception and also by the Chinese lunar age of mother at conception. Being a legendary method of sex selection, founded on a mystical calendar from Ancient China, and also lacking any scientific or even statistical proof, this method is generally considered unreliable, being acceptable only for wasting time.

The Answers of These Two Types of Methods

The answer offered by the timing methods to the question dealt with in this article is that, in order to have a male offspring, the two partners (i.e., the two future parents) should schedule their sexual intercourse in relation to ovulation, as follows: [Continue reading]

Alkaline Foods to Conceive a Boy

In some other articles that I published on this website I told you about the pre-conception diet that is recommended to the women aiming for a male offspring: a diet that is rich in salty and high-potassium food items, while being poor in high-calcium (e.g., dairy) and high-magnesium products. Regarding the diets for conceiving a boy, there is another essential aspect that a future mother needs to take into account: the pH of her vagina – more precisely, the alkalizing (i.e., alkaline producing or alkaline forming) foods should be preferred.

Which are the Best Alkaline Foods to Give Birth to a Boy ?

When choosing the food stuff that you intend to include in your pre-conception diet, you should pay attention not only to the acid/alkaline effect of the food on your body, but also to the other two aspects that increase the likelihood of having a male offspring (about these two aspects I told you a lot in other articles posted on this website):

  • diet should be high in sodium and potassium;
  • diet should be low in calcium and magnesium.

Therefore, the food items that are ideal when trying to get pregnant with a boy ought to have these three qualities, i.e. they should be:

  1. “alkaline forming” (alkalizing, alkaline producing, i.e., have an alkaline effect on the body)
  2. high in sodium and/or potassium
  3. low in calcium and/or magnesium.

In this article, I selected the five most healthy alkaline foods that follow all the three conditions mentioned above and which, consequently, boost the chances of getting pregnant with a male descendant. Anyway, you must be aware of the fact that, in addition to these five products, there are many other famous alkalizing fruits and vegetables, some of which are high-magnesium (such as bananas, which are also high-potassium) or high-calcium (like broccoli), facts that make them unsuitable when aiming for a boy – this does not mean that you should not consume them, just make sure that your intake of sodium and potassium exceeds your intake of calcium and magnesium, while the foods that you eat are alkaline-forming and not acidifying (i.e., acid-forming).

Recommended Foods For Getting Pregnant with a Baby Boy

Many people search on the Internet information about “diet to conceive a boy“. This is happening because more and more parents are interested nowadays in having a baby of a chosen gender. This interest may have personal, medical, cultural or even social causes. In their attempt of giving birth to a child of a particular sex, the couples would like to find a natural solution. When it comes to conceiving an offspring of a desired sex, there are two main beliefs. One the one hand, the great majority of scientists are strongly of the opinion that gender selection may be reliably achieved only by using one of the following two complex, artificial and high-tech methods: MicroSort, which is still an experimental technique, and PGD with IVF, which has a success rate of 100 %, if it is applied correctly and if there are no technical errors.

One the other hand, a couple of researchers have discovered some natural methods of preconceptional selection of fetal sex; these techniques include many tips to give birth to a boy. The main natural strategies for controlling the gender of an offspring are: the diet methods, the timing methods and the Chinese Gender Calendar Method. The timing techniques focus on scheduling the sexual intercourse, while the Chinese Pregnancy Calendar strategy is based on determining, using an ancient calendar, the month in which a child of the desired gender can be conceived.

The diet methods for setting the sex of a future child consist in recommendations of foods that the woman should eat in order to give birth to an offspring of a desired gender. All the diet techniques of human gender selection are variations of the dietary method discovered in 1980 by Drs. Lorrain and Stolkowski, which says that the diet for conceiving a boy must be rich in potassium and sodium, and, at the same time, poor in calcium and magnesium.

But the researches in the field of animal sex selection have been done right from the beginning of the twentieth century. In the 1930s, the experimental embryologist Dr. Curt Herbst, Director of the Zoological Institute in Heidelberg, discovered that the gender of taurines can be controlled by modifying the proportions of minerals in their diet. More precisely, the respected European scientist discovered experimentally that the salty diets led to much more bulls than heifers. This was a promising theory for the couples trying to figure out how to conceive a boy. Diet became, starting from this discovery, one of the main subjects studied by the scientists interested in human gender selection. [Continue reading]

Method to follow ovulation calculator

If you and your partner have decided to perform sex in the next week then plan it in the day of your ovulation. Sex must be practiced before 24 hours of ovulation and after 12 hours of ovulation time. The reason for this is that male “Y” chromosomes reaches fast to the ovaries than X chromosomes which are for girls if the cervical mucus is not suitable for male chromosomes due to more acidity then it can’t reach the egg to fertilize. In such cases, female sperm reaches to the uterus and gets fertilized.
