Natural Gender Selection:
Do you want to get pregnant with a boy, or do you want to get pregnant with a girl?
Whichever your preference is, there are some natural gender selection techniques you can utilize that will increase the possibility of having a baby of your chosen gender.
Many couples have applied these methods with great success. The question is: Does natural gender selection work?
How to Select The Gender Of Your Baby, Naturally!
While no method is 100% accurate, there are a number of key things that successful couples have tried to increase the chances of having either a boy or a girl.
The theory behind it is quite interesting and scientifically based. In fact, these methods utilize the same principals used by genetists when doing IVF gender selection.
"In order to conceive a boy, the sperm that fertilizes the egg has to carry the Y chromosome, while in order to conceive a girl, the sperm that fertilizes the egg has to carry a X chromosome."
The sperm carrying the male or Y chromosomes and the sperm carrying the female of X chromosome are very different.
For example, the Y sperm is weaker than the X sperm. Furthermore, the X sperm is heavier and cannot swim as fast as the Y sperm.
When you understand these difference, you also understand why doing certain things will change the environment where one type of sperm can do better than the other, thus increasing your chances of conceiving your preferred baby gender.
Some of the things that you need to follow in order to achieve a natural gender selection are:
Natural Gender Selection and Your Diet
Sperms survive in the female reproductive tract as a result of the presence of fertile cervical mucus.
The pH level of the cervical mucus determines which type of sperm will survive better.
"The sperm carrying the X chromosome needs a more acidic environment, while the sperm that carries the Y chromosome need an environment that is alkaline."
In order to get pregnant with a girl, you need to follow diet that is rich in calcium and magnesium, while in order to get pregnant with a boy, you need to follow a diet rich in sodium and potassium.
These tissue elements increase the mucus production and affect its pH.
While conceiving a boy, eat higher amounts of red meat and fruits like bananas and while conceiving a girl, eat higher amounts of dairy products, grapefruits, leafy green vegetables, broccoli, apples, and fish.
Natural Gender Selection and Timing Intercourse
Another important aspect of natural gender selection is the timing of intercourse during your menstrual cycle.
"The sperm carrying the Y chromosome do not live as long as the one carrying the X chromosome, so they need to reach the egg as soon as possible."
If you want to conceive a baby boy, you need to have intercourse as close as possible to ovulation because you want the Y sperm to fertilize the egg when they are still viable and capable of swimming fast.
On the other hand, if you want to conceive a baby girl you need to have intercourse as far away as possible from ovulation giving enough time for the male sperm to die off.
It takes longer for the X sperm to reach the egg and you need to give it enough time to reach the egg and should time intercourse 3 days before ovulation or right after.
Natural Gender Selection and Positions During Sex
You may not be aware of this, but the sexual position you choose during sex can affect the natural gender selection of your baby.
This is based on the difference between the two types of sperm, once again.
The Y sperm, carrying the male gender of your future baby, need to reach the egg as quickly as possible because they live less longer, but can swim faster than the X sperm.
1. If you want to get pregnant with a boy, your partner needs to release the sperm as close as possible to the cervix by using a position that allows for deeper penetration.
2. If you want to get pregnant with a girl you need to create the conditions so that the Y sperm will take longer to reach the egg and most likely die off before reaching their target.
"This is base on the scientific observation that male sperm is weaker and not has hardy as female sperm."
In this case you should adopt a position during sex that will favor the X sperm over the Y sperm.
In this case you will require to use a position where shallow penetration is achieved.
Natural Gender Selection and Orgasm
Interestingly enough, the chances of conceiving a boy are higher if a woman orgasms before her male partner does.
This is because vaginal secretions that occur during orgasm shift to a more alkaline range of the pH scale.
Thus allowing the Y sperm the be in a perfect environmental condition that favors its survival and travel through the cervix reaching the egg faster.
On the other hand, if you are trying for a girl, you should not orgasm because before orgasm the environment in the vagina and cervix is acidic, perfect for sperm carrying the X chromosome.
Natural gender selection should be fun and a way to be more empowered during conception.
There is no 100% guarantee that you will be able to conceive a boy or a girl, but according to research studies, your chances will definitely be higher.
