Are you looking for how to conceive a girl. Do you see a cute lil girl and you wish you had one. Or you have 2 lovely boys and you would like to add a lil girl to the family. Boy or girl, your dreams can come through.
I believe everything around us as a way in which it operates. For example ovulation must happen before conception can occur. This understanding alone has helped the doctor to treat many infertility problems.
The better we understand how something works the better we can use it for our favour!. And don't listen to people who make you feel guilty for wanting a particular gender we all have desires and aspirations. Everyone is different.
Howbeit, all kids whether boy or girl are blessings and perfect!
There are 8 main factors you need to pay attention to when trying to conceive a baby girl.
But first let me give you a brief understanding of the shettles method for girls.
Shettles method for conceiving a girl
The Shettles method is a gender swaying method that was developed by a biology scientist called Dr Landrum Shettles.
He researched and developed a natural gender selection method for conceiving a boy or a girl in 1960.
His method of gender selection is way cheaper than artificial selection of sex and does not require you travelling for any medical treatment.
Dr Shettles basically understood how the sperm determines a boy or girl at the moment of conception.
His finding was that a woman's egg always carries an x chromosome.
While a man's sperm are of two types: The Y chromosome carrying sperm and the X chromosome carrying sperm.
If a Y chromosome fertilises the sperm first a boy is conceived. And If an X chromosome fertilises the egg first a girl is conceived.
What a wonderful discovery that is.
Dr Shettles also discovered that some morphological characteristics that differentiates the Y sperm from the X sperm.
He discovered that the Y sperm:
- Swims faster but dies quicker
- Less resilient and weaker
Whereas the X sperm:
- Swims slower but lives longer
- More resilient and stronger
So to have a boy or girl, two thing were the most important:
1. The timing of intercourse
2. Sexual Position
Right now, I will be focusing on just how to use this information to get a baby girl!.
How To Have a Girl - 8 Crucial Steps
1. Time Intercourse to 2-4 days before ovulation
Based on Doctor Landrum Shettles, you should have unprotected intercourse 2-4 days before your expected ovulation date.
The reason for this is because the X sperm lives longer in a woman's body than the Y sperm. If you have sex close to ovulation you are more likely to have a boy because the fast swimming Y sperm would get to the egg first to penetrate it.
But if you have sex at the beginning of your fertile window as far from your expected day of ovulation, the fast swimmers will swim up the cervix to meet the egg but they would be disappointed because no egg has been released.
Because of their weak nature, they will die before the egg is released days later at ovulation.
Meanwhile, the X sperm will swim slowly and still be waiting for the egg until it is released at ovulation because they are resilient, stronger and live longer about 3-7 days in a woman body.
In addition having sex early in your fertile window compared to having sex close to ovulation, ensures that your cervical mucus is not so sperm friendly that would allow the Y or male producing sperm to thrive.
Having frequent protected sex before the day of the main deed is also encourage to help reduce the sperm count. Lower sperm count favours girls.
Just make sure any intercourse before the main on is protected to avoid pregnancy.
2. Sexual Position
There are two most recommended sexual positions to help get pregnant faster and they are the missionary or deep penetration position.
For a girl, the recommended position is a missionary style, which allows for the sperm to be deposited as far away from the cervix as possible. The cervix is the neck of the womb.
For a boy the recommended position is a rear-entry position popularly known as doggy. This allows the sperm to be deposited as close to the cervix as possible.
The farther away the sperm is deposited from the cervix, the more difficult it is for the male sperm to make it through the vagina because they are weak and don't like the harsh acidic environment of the vagina.
At ovulation, if you have been studying you will notice that your cervical mucus is very slippery and wet. This is known as the egg white cervical mucus.
This is the best texture and consistency that the Y sperm enjoys and able to thrive in.
But an acidic cervical mucus is less favourable to the Y sperm. The egg white cervical mucus produced at ovulation or the day of your peak fertility is alkaline in nature.
A healthy vaginal PH is slightly acid to keep away the bad bacteria from the vagina. But during ovulation because of the excess cervical mucus produced it becomes alkaline to allow the sperm swim easily and faster.
To make a baby girl, you want your vaginal ph to be in the acidic range to make it more difficult for the Y sperm to survive while the resilient X sperm make their way through.
So how do you achieve the right ph of 4-4.5 for a girl to be conceived?
The best way is to alter your PH is to:
- Change your diet. Eat more acidic forming foods at least a month before conception
- Take Supplements
- Avoid organism during Sex
As discussed previous, you need to take supplement to lower your PH and also to have a healthy baby. The mom-to-be and Dad-to-be are required to choose the supplements that are most beneficial to them from the table below:
Please note choose the one that is most beneficial to you. You don't have to take every one of them.
Here is a list of what for many other women like you take to conceive a girl:
When To Take
From AF to O
Magnesium in CM sways for girls
From end of period to ovulation
Calcium in CM sways girls
Raises progesterone and strengthens luteal phase
1500 to 10,000 mg
From after period to ovulation
2 times daily
From Period to Ovulation
Lowers PH for some people
From Period to Ovulation
Regulates menstrual cycle and raises progesterone
Regulates menstrual cycle. Do not take if your cycle is regular
1-2 hours before intercourse
Dries up Cervical Mucus and lowers PH
5. Foods To Eat A.k.a The Girl Diet
The truth is foods we eat affects the Ph of our body and also our ions and minerals.
Since we know that the X sperm loves a PH that is low i.e 4-4.5.
You will want to consume a diet that would help you to achieve this acidic figures.
These are foods high in calcium and magnesium. And consume less of foods high in potassium and sodium as they sway for baby boys.
An example list of foods high in calcium and magnesium
1. Consume 3 glasses of milk daily atleast a month before you try to conceive a baby girl.
2. Eat yogurts. Greek style or organic is best.
3. Strawberries and Raspberries, raw appricots
4. Sugar free gum
5. Eat salmon daily
6. Best Season For conceiving a girl
Depending on the seasons alone, will not help you get a baby girl. It must be combined with other factors with timing and position of intercourse been the most important.
The best season to conceive a baby girl is in the summer months.
7. Moon Phase
The phase of the moon in which a baby is also has an effect on gender.
Babies conceived in the new moon are more likely to be a girl when combined with timing and position of intercourse.
Babies conceived in full moon and on winter months are more likely to be boy. Whereas summer months and new moon favours a girl conception.
The types of ions we are exposed to on a regular basis affect how the egg is being polarised. The egg is either negatively charged or positively charged.
The X sperm is negatively charged naturally.
While the Y sperm is positively charged naturally.
And because opposite ions attract each other, the egg will need to be negatively charge to attract the a positively charged Y sperm.
To have a girl, you want to get more exposure to negative ions as much as possible.
If trying to conceive a boy, expose yourself to positive ions instead.
Here are some examples of the negative ions in our environment:
Water fall, rain, shower, new moon, fire, hairdryers, plants, air purifier, saunas, ionised water, essential oils.
Basically, the ions you breathe in can make your egg either positively or negative charged during release at ovulation.
9. No Orgasm for the woman
The purpose of no orgasm is to ensure that the cervical mucus during intercourse doesn't get alkaline to favour the Y(male)sperm.
