How to conceive a girl using Shettles Method Explained
The Shettles Method is a theory that was developed by Dr Landrum Shettles in 1960.
Dr Shettles found out that there are two types of sperm. The Y-chromosome carrying sperm and the X-chromosome carrying sperm.
The theory is basically that:
- A baby girl is conceived if the X sperm fertilises the egg
- Baby Boy's are conceived if the Y sperm fertilises the egg.
So the question is how do you control what sperm fertilises the egg first.
The answer can be found in the characteristics of each sperm discovered by Dr Shettles:
- The Y-sperm or boy sperm swims faster but dies quicker because it is weaker
- The X-sperm or girl sperm swims slower but lives longer because it is stronger
You can use the characteristics of each sperm to your advantage when trying natural ways of gender selection. It will save you loads of money and time involved in IVF and other artificial sex selection process.
9 CRITICAL FACTOR FOR CONCEIVING A GIRL
Based on the findings by Dr Shettles; There are 9 things YOU MUST DO to consciously and intentionally conceive a baby girl.
These 9 factors increase your chances of having a girl. You must do all because they are all important.
1. Timing Intercourse 2-3 days Before Ovulation
Shettles advise that you should have sexual intercourse a few days before ovulation. This is to allow for the boy sperm to die off before the egg is released, And also to give the slow moving X sperm a chance to get to the ovum(egg) by the time it is released.
This is really a strategy to get rid of the male sperm because they can't survive as long as the female sperm does.
If you have sex close to ovulation or on the day you ovulate, you are more likely to conceive a boy because this fast Y swimmers will outrun the female slow X sperm to reach the egg first.
This is why it is advisable to abstain from sex and ejaculation into the vagina at least 2-3 days before ovulation and on the day of ovulation if trying for a girl baby.
2. Sexual Intercourse Position
Some positions favour the conception of a girl over a boy. If you are serious about getting a girl. Make sure you use a shallow penetrating position like the missionary position. Avoid deep penetrating position like the doggy style except if you are trying to have a baby boy.
A shallow penetrating position will allow the sperm to be deposited far away from the cervix. This secret and strategy is to make it difficult for the male sperm to survive or escape in the harsh environment of the vagina.
The female sperm is stronger and can withstand the harsh conditions of the vagina but the boy sperm will struggle to survive.
On the contrary if trying for a boy a deep penetration position is recommended.
3. No Orgasm For the Woman
An alkaline vagina or cervical mucus favours the boy sperm. An acidic vagina favours the girl sperm.
When a woman has an orgasm, the Ph level of her vagina increases making it more sperm friendly. But you want to keep the harsh conditions of the vagina to make sure the Y sperm struggle, give up and die off before they get to the egg.
Try as much as possible to keep your vagina acidic. Some women use lemon and water to increase the acidity of their vagina. It is not recommended you douche. You can simply take supplements or change your diet to make your vagina acidic.
4. Foods to Eat
Foods you eat can influence, the gender of baby you conceive. The girl diet is highly recommended for couple who want a girl.
The foods you eat not only influences your body but also the gender of the baby.
A research done by the Oxford and Exeter university in the United Kingdom showed that women who ate breakfast where prone to having boys.
Studies have also found that eating food that have acidifying effect on the body increases the chances of having a girl. While foods that have an alkaline effects on the body increases your chance of having a boy.
Also the mom-to-be should eat foods that are high in magnesium and calcium and consume less potassium foods and salt.
Going on the girl diet will affect the egg polarity and thereby causing the female sperm to be attracted to the egg.
Foods High in Magnesium
- Black Beans
- Wholewheat Bread
- Cooked Spinach
Foods High in CALCIUM
- Sesame Seeds
- Raw Apricots
The mother and the Father-to-be should avoid caffeine if possible.
Start the girl diet 1-2 months before planning to conceive.
5. PH Level
PH stands for potential for hydrogen, and it is the measurement of how acidic and alkaline a solution is.
Our body can either be alkaline or acidic. The PH scale ranges from 0-14. The human body is around 7.36.
But the PH of a healthy vagina should be slightly acidic. An alkaline vagina breeds bacterial infections. And if your vaginal is too acidic it breeds yeast infection.
An acidic vagina PH favours the conception of a girl, while an alkaline PH favours the conception of a boy baby.
This is simply because the X sperm (female) are stronger and can survive in an acidic environment. Whereas the male sperm is weaker and can hardly survive this kind of tough environment.
The Foods you eat affects the PH of your body. This is why it is advised that you consume food that have an acidic effect on your body.
While some foods may appear acidic, but when consumed it has an alkalinity effect on the body. An example is lemon.
So you want to make sure that the food you consume have an acidic effect on your body.
Here are the recommended to take in acidifying foods:
1. Drink 3 large glasses of Milk everyday. Milk from grass-fed cows are better.
2. Consume more of these acidifying foods: whole milk yogurt, grape fruit, orange, fresh strawberries and raspberries.
3. Reduce Meat intake. You can replace with fish, chicken or lamb.
4. Everyday eat Fish or Lamb. Eat 2 eggs and Drink 3 large glasses of milk.
Monitor the over-all ph of your body regularly. Aim for a body PH of 6.5
Supplements are very important. They help us decrease the PH of the cervical mucus to get a girl.
Let's face it, it may be difficult for you to get all you need to lower the PH of your cervical mucus from food alone.
