There is a reason why the internet is full of articles on how to have a boy.

This article is based on Dr Shettles method for having a boy.
Who exactly is Dr Shettles and what is the Shettles method?
Good question I know you did ask!.
Let me tell you all about Shettles method and why it is so effective for conceiving a boy.
how to have a boy using shettles method
Dr Shettles Landrum is a well renowned scientist in the field of gender selection.
He is the father of natural gender selection, in which he has sold millions of copies of bestselling book How to Choose the Sex of you Baby.
According to Dr Shettles, having sex on the day of ovulation is the most important factor to conceiving a boy.
He based his discovery on the fact that a man produces 2 types of sperm.
The X Chromosome and Y Chromosome sperm.
A woman's egg has two X chromosome.
So the sex of a baby is determined by the chromosome of the sperm that meets it first.
If the X sperm meets the egg first a girl is conceived but if the Y sperm meets the egg first a boy is conceived.
But with his study he also found out the X sperm is stronger, lives longer but moves slowly.
The Y sperm is weak, dies quickly within 24 hrs but moves faster.
So Dr Shettles confirmed through series of experiment that timing of sex is the most important factor to give the male sperm a boost and chance to meet the egg first.
If you've sex days before ovulation, the male sperm will be dead before the egg is released at ovulation.
Thus giving the X sperm(female), opportunity to fertilise the egg.
As we know this would result into conceiving a baby girl.
SO WHAT MUST I DO TO GET A BOY?
So to get a boy, you want to have intercourse at ovulation, so that the fast moving male sperm have a greater chance to get to the egg first.
So timing your intercourse with the day of a woman's ovulation is so so important.
But for this to work you have to become a master at pinpointing ovulation(practice for at least 3 months) and also you need to make your vagina male sperm friendly.
The normal healthy condition of the vagina favours the X sperm.
The PH of a healthy vagina is acidic.
The male sperm finds this acidic environment harsh and most Y sperm will die before reaching the egg because of this.
So let me break down the other 8 critical success factor YOU MUST DO to conceive a boy.
8 must do tips to guarantee a baby boy
1. Timing Ovulation Correctly
Pinpointing Ovulation will definitely increase your chances of getting pregnant with a boy.
According to the shettles method for conceiving a boy, it is believed that the boy sperm(Y Sperm) swims faster than the girl Sperm (X Sperm) but here is the sad news the boy sperm can only survive 24-48 hrs after it has been released.
So imagine you have sex too early in your fertile phase; Let's say 5 days to ovulation.
Because both boy and girl sperm are deposited during intercourse; here is what will happen, the boy sperm will swim faster but will die in the next 24-48 hrs after it has been released.
The girl sperm will swim slowly but the girl sperm will still be alive by the time ovulation occurs.
So avoid having sex too early before ovulation occurs to conceive a boy.
I am sure you agree with me ovulation timing and ability to correctly pinpoint ovulation is so crucial to having a successful boy conception.
To correctly pinpoint ovulation,it is mandatory you make use of an ovulation calculator to conceive a baby boy or calendar for 3 consecutive months before you try to conceive.
In conjunction with this, make use of an ovulation predictor test kit for 3 months or more.
Remember practice makes perfect.
Don't try to get pregnant with a boy without using an ovulation test kit.
2. get on the BOY diet
Consuming foods that are high in potassium and sodium, alkalizing foods and high testosterone will increase your chances of having a boy because what we eat or drink affects our body's alkalinity and acidity levels.
To get a boy you want to achieve an alkaline body state.
To conceive a girl you want to achieve an acidic body state.
Since you want to give birth to a boy, I will be focusing on foods and drinks you should take to achieve this.
Foods high in potassium and sodium, alkalizing and high testosterone diet are perfect for this.
List of Foods High in Potassium and Sodium
- Tomatoes or Tomato Juice
- Potatoes with Skin
Akaline Foods to Conceive a boy
- Sweet potatoes
high testosterone Foods to Conceive a boy
- Red Meat
3. best season to conceive a boy
Some Seasons are favourable to conceiving a Boy than others. For Example:
Winter Months are most favourable to conceiving a Boy
Summer Months are most favourable to conceiving a girl
This is because during winter months positive ions are released into the atmosphere and the air we breathe. These Positive Ions favour the conception of boys. While during summer months negative ions are released into the atmosphere favouring conception of girls.
4. best moon phase to conceive a boy
Just like the seasons, we now know that positive ions favour conception of boys.
This means that full moon is the perfect time to having a boy because positive ions are produced during the full moon.
To Conceive a girl, the new moon phase is recommended because negative ions are produced/released into the atmosphere.
Some women also use the Chinese calendar to check the month that best favours the conception of a boy for that particular year.
But some women swear by it!.
5. raise the ph level of the vagina to have a boy
A vagina can either be acidic or alkaline.
A healthy vagina ph is acidic that is between 3.8 to 4.5 Ph Levels.
The boy sperm (Y Sperm) survives better in an alkaline environment.
The girl Sperm (X Sperm) survives better in an acidic environment.
To increase your chances of conceiving a boy you want to achieve an alkaline vaginal PH of 7.5 and over around the time if sex.
This would mean you would need to increase the PH level of your vagina.
The good news is around ovulation and on your ovulation day the vagina ph is more alkaline than in other days of your cycle.
But for some women the level of alkalinity is not sufficient enough to aid the Y sperm to swim better and faster.
In that case other method of increasing your vaginal ph level is recommended.
6. egg white cervical mucus to conceive a boy
Cervical Mucus is the fluid produced /secreted from the cervix.
The main purpose of the slippery and egg white cervical mucus at ovulation is to aid or help the sperm swim faster or easier to the egg.
Egg White Cervical Mucus consistency is the most favourable for conception of a boy. It looks like this
The Problem is that not all women produce egg white cervical mucus during their fertile days.
You can use take some supplement or lubricant to increase your egg white cervical mucus if you don't normally produce enough egg white cervical mucus.
But most preferable try to increase your cervical mucus through diet or supplements.
7. recommended level of hormone to conceive a boy
To increase your chances of conceiving a boy 3 hormones are very essential:
LOW BUT SUFFICIENT
You basically want a low progesterone for both Dad-to-be and Mom-to-be.
But progesterone hormone is necessary for a healthy and successful pregnancy.
So when I mean low I mean in sufficient amount.
High testosterone for Dad-to-be and Mom-to-be.
You want a low estrogen for Dad-to-be and a high Estrogen for Mom-to-be.
recommended POSITIONS to get pregnant with a boy
The recommended position is a deep penetration position for boys.
To conceive a girl, a shallow position is recommended instead.
The best and recommended position is the doggy position.
Things to Note:
- The woman should have an orgasm first. Orgasm increases the PH of the vagina.
- The Sperm should be released as close to the cervix as possible
- The man should avoid ejaculation 3-5 days to ovulation
- Have Sex on the day of Ovulation. Not more than 12 hours before or 12 hours after.
- The Man Should take a cold bath or put some ice pack on his balls before sex.
1 hour before sex the man should drink one or 2 cans of coke or red bull or caffeinated coffee.
Foods to Avoid To conceive a baby boy
Avoid or eat in minimal quantity foods that has acidic effect on the body when eaten.
These foods help sway girl so to have a boy you want to eat them with caution:
- Blueberries are too acidic
- Diary ( Milk, Yogurt, Cheese)
- Decaffeinated Coffee
Other positions to get pregnant with a boy naturally
There are other deep penetration sex positions that I wrote about here you should read. But the most recommended position for a boy is a doggie style.
