When to Have Sex To Conceive A girl

My last menstrual period is 09/02/2012(dd/mm/yyyy). I want a girl baby now.

My menstrual period is regular and gets each month on the exact day or two days later. My periods are normal with just 5 days of bleeding.

My question is: Is it ok if I go for an intercourse on 29th February and 1st of March to get pregnant.

Will it be ok? Is there any chance to get a girl baby?

Please guide.


In order to conceive a girl you need to make sure to have sex at the right time and in order to do this the best way is to chart your cycle so that you know when you normally ovulate.

You need to know the length of your menstrual cycle and the length of your luteal phase.

Since I don’t know, I would assume your cycle is 28 days long and that your luteal phase is 14 days long.

The best day to have sex would have been on Feb 19 (on day 11th of your cycle). Make sure to do it with shallow insertion of penis.

If your cycle is longer than 28 days, consider the following:

29 days have sex on the 20th
30 days have sex on the 21st
31 days have sex on the 22nd
32 days have sex on the 23rd


This also assumes that your luteal phase is 14 days long. If your luteal phase is shorter, you need to adjust accordingly.

Some sources also advocate having sex 12 hours after ovulation, but this is very hard to do and also you can risk to fertilize and old defective egg. This can be done by using an OPK test and have sex the first day you get a negative after a positive.

So, have sex 3 days before ovulation and make sure to keep the pH in your vagina low by eating lots of dairy products lean meat, foods high in calcium and low in sodium.

Many Blessings!
