Relatively Easy Ways To Choose Your Baby's Gender

If you've found this article, I have to assume that you want to get pregnant sometime in the near future and have a very definite idea of whether you want a girl or boy baby. You probably already know there are a couple of methods to make this goal come true.  Choosing your baby's gender using artificial measures is obviously the most sure fire way to go if money is not an issue and you don't mind taking the natural, intimate contributions from the mother and father out of the equation. 

In today's economy, the group of people who are in this situation is probably shrinking rapidly. Few can afford thousands of dollars for this process.  So, this article will focus on easy, natural ways that you can influence or choose your baby's sex or gender yourself without ever setting foot in a clinic.

First, Understand Exactly What You Need To Do To Get The Gender / Sex You Want: Some people think natural gender selection is complicated or multi - faceted, but this doesn't have to be true.  It can be quite easy if you understand your real objection. To put it in the most simple of terms, to have the gender you want, you have to make sure that the sperm which fertilizes the egg that has the chromosomes of your desired gender.  For example, if you want a boy, you want the Y sperm to fertilize the egg because this will result in a boy.  If you want a girl, then you're going for X sperm, which will produce a daughter.

So, to choose the sex of your baby, you need to diminish the numbers of the sperm containing the chromosomes of the gender you don't want, leaving room for tons of those that you do want.  If you want a girl, then you want to clear the reproductive tract of boy sperm as much as you can and vice versa.

To take this a bit further, Y sperm (boy) has different characteristics than X (girl sperm.) Boy producing sperm is much faster, but it is weak.  Girl sperm is poky and slow, but extremely hardy.  Keep this in mind throughout this article.

Timing And Your Baby's Sex And Gender: When trying to conceive, keep in mind how hardy and long lived your desired gender is. If you want a boy, then understand these sperm can't live for long. Therefore, you need to conceive as close to ovulation as possible – giving these little guys the best chance you can.  If you want a girl, you can afford to conceive earlier (three days before ovulation).  The girl sperm won't be affected, but the boy sperm will start to diminish as your egg becomes ready.

Want to make this even easier? Use ovulation predictors that take all of the guess work out of the "right day."

Intercourse Positions That Favor A Girl Or A Boy: Again, consider your desired gender's characteristics before you conceive. Since boy sperm are so vulnerable, place them right where they need to be so that they don't have far to travel. Use deep penetration to place them at the base of the cervix.

For a girl, use shallow positions that place the sperm far away from the egg. Luckily, the slow girl sperm will live long enough to make the trip, while the boy sperm often won't.

This is probably the easiest of all of the variables and most people don't have a problem with this one.

The Final Consideration: Your Vaginal Environment: So, we have these two sperm chromosomes that are getting ready to race for the egg.  One is fast but vulnerable (boy) and the other is slow but strong and unyielding (girl).  So, depending on which racer you are rooting for, you can make the environment one that is going to be friendly to your desired gender. 

If you want a girl, you should shoot for a highly acidic environment because this will help diminish the boy sperm. They can not withstand a high PH.  But, if you want a boy, you need to alkalize your vaginal because this will make it much more friendly to the boy sperm, who need a low PH to survive. 

Want to make this even easier? You can actually test your PH with testing strips (available at health food stores and online) to see where you are. This will tell you exactly how much work you need to do before you get to the PH that will produce the gender you want.

Depending on your reading, you can change your PH with a special diet (acidic foods for a girl and alkaline foods for a boy) or by douching with ingredients based on your reading. 

There is an easier route for this one as well. Gender selection clinics sell these douches and will also supply you with food list, but you can get these and make them yourself at home.  

I've put together a few websites that take a lot of the guess work out of choosing your baby's gender. You'll find step by step instructions, resources, tips, support, and examples of ovulation predictors / PH testing strips.
