How To Conceive A Boy

There are a variety of reasons why a couple might want to have a boy. In some cases, it is simply the way that their family interests run - they may have visions of watching a son who is a wrestler, or football player.

In some cases a family has already had a daughter, or perhaps more than one daughter, and they want to try to have a son to even out their family's dynamics.

Whatever the reason, though some may think that the gender of their baby is totally at the discretion of fate, the truth is that there are methods that have been scientifically proven to work, and many of them are things that you can do without the intervention of a physician.

How To Conceive A Boy Diet

There are some who believe that the diet that both a man and a woman eat when they are trying to get pregnant can have an impact on whether you have a boy or a girl. Proponents of these diet-related plans say that in order to have a boy, a woman should take in up to several hundred more calories per day.

They say that you should eat hearty breakfasts, and particularly pay attention to eating cereal. The general consensus is that sperm do better and live longer in a more alkaline environment, so women are advised to eat foods that are savory rather than sweet, such as red meat, beans and eggs.

Foods that are high in potassium such as bananas are said to promote your chances of having a boy, and you should try to cut back as much as possible on dairy products, which can make your vaginal environment more acidic, and more friendly to female sperm. It is also said that men who drink coffee and increase the amount of caffeine in their system, are more likely to conceive sons.

How To Conceive A Boy Calendar

One of the best ways to improve your chances of having a boy when you're trying to get pregnant is to pay careful attention to the woman's menstrual cycle, and learn exactly when she is ovulating. The reason why this information is so crucial has to do with the short life cycle that a male sperm has as compared to a female sperm.

Male sperm are known to be very fast and efficient swimmers and they get to where they are supposed to meet the egg much more quickly than female sperm do, but if they get there before the egg has arrived they are likely to die, while the slower female sperm live longer.

Because of this, the best way to have a boy is to time your attempts at conception so that the male sperm arrive at the egg as soon as it arrives, and the only way to time this accurately is to be very aware of the woman's cycle.

There are a number of ways to track this, but the most accurate method is probably to use one of the ovulation predictors available over the counter. These vary in the information they provide, but all will help.

How To Conceive A Boy Naturally

There are a lot of interesting history on the different things that people throughout history have thought about how to have a boy; some cultures believed that the sex of the child was determined by which testicle the man's sperm came from, and would tie back either the right or left testicle depending upon whether a couple wanted a boy or a girl.

More recently, people have believed such strange myths as if a woman's head is pointing north you will conceive a baby boy, or that if they have sex at night they will have a boy, whereas girls are conceived during the day.
