Are you hoping to get pregnant with a boy? Try these top 10 tips to help you get pregnant with a boy. Maybe they are old wives' tales, or maybe they're true.

So, you want to get pregnant with a boy? Well, a few years ago you would just have to do your thing and hope for the best! But, not anymore! These days, methods from the tried and true, to the downright wacky are everywhere! Whether you want a boy or a girl, there are steps you can take to better your chances. Of course, none of the methods listed below are proven effective, and some are just wives’ tales, but what have you got to lose?? Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Without further ado, here is our list of methods for getting pregnant with a boy!

Know When You Are Ovulating

Sounds obvious, but when you are trying to conceive, you want to make absolutely sure. Ovulation predictor kits are now widely available at drug and grocery stores everywhere, or you can do a quick web search for a ton of tips on how to tell when you are ovulating. Check our When do You Ovulate article for more information.

Have Sex As Close To Ovulation As Possible

Fun Fact? Male sperm are the faster swimmers, but they also die super fast. Female sperm can hang around for a while and take their time getting to the egg. By having sex as close to ovulation as possible, you will give your little guys (ha!) a head start!

Say Good Bye To Missionary Sex

So it’s time to say good-bye to the missionary position – at least for now! Try a position that will allow deeper penetration, such as “standing sex,” you on top, or on all fours. The basics of this? Deeper penetration will “deposit” those little sperm guys closer to the uterus, giving them far less distance to travel and a better chance of “winning!”

Eat Like A Man

No, really. For some reason, boy sperm prefer alkaline environments, which means environments that are less acidic. So, to increase alkalinity, experts recommend eating more red meat, salty foods and soda. So, go ahead and have a big meal, girl! It’s all for the sake of baby!

Have An Orgasm!

Orgasm is another one of the things that helps produce a more alkaline environment that is conducive to producing boys! This is highly prescribed by the Shettles Method of gender selection as well.

Use The Chinese Lunar Calender!

Tons of people swear by this gender-predicting method, and it has been around for hundreds of years. It uses the mother’s age and the month in which she conceives to determine the baby’s gender. You can use the calender to determine which month you should try to conceive in to get the baby gender that you are hoping for. Some lunar calender experts say this method is up to 99% accurate! Why not give it a try?

Make Your Man Wear Boxers

Boy sperm hate heat, so wearing boxers may help your man to keep things cool and breezy for the boys down there. Hey, whatever it takes! And remind your man no hot tubs and no hot baths either!

Cough Syrup?

Is this a wives tale, or not? Some women swear by taking a dose of cough medicine before sex. Why in the world? Well, experts say that cough medicines that contain the ingredient guaifenesin can help to thin mucus membranes in the cervix, helping those little swimmers to get through. Many women actively take cough medicine as an over-the-counter remedy to help with their cervical mucus to get them pregnant faster, and now perhaps it may work better to conceive the baby boy you’ve been longing for.

Check the Moon

This one is definitely an old wives’ tale, but the legend is, having sex on the night of a quarter moon guarantees a boy! So take our your calendars, check the lunar phases and look for a quarter moon.

Make Your Man Drink Coffee

Some people swear that you can increase your chances of getting pregnant with a boy by having your man down a cup of coffee before sex. Maybe the caffeine gets those little guys swimming faster?

There you have it ladies, our top ten tricks to getting pregnant with a boy. Will they work? Who knows, but they will sure be fun to try!

    While there are no surefire steps you can take to be able to conceive a baby boy, you can do a lot of things to increase your chances of having one. Boy sperms (y chromosome) are faster but weaker. You can try having intercourse 24 hours before ovulation as it is during this time the slippery cervical mucus helps the Y sperm reach the egg faster than the X (girl) sperm. You can also have your wife modify her diet by avoiding acidic foods like oranges as the boy sperms prefer a more alkaline environment.

    While there are no guaranteed ways to conceive a baby boy, there are things you can do to increase your chances such as eating alkaline foods like eggs,peas,red meats, sweet corn and beans as boy sperms thrive on an alkaline environment. Having an orgasm can make a more alkaline environment.

    While no methods can guarantee that you will get pregnant with a baby boy, the best way to achieve this goal is to create an alkaline environment because it is favorable to boy sperms. Eat specific food like red meat,eggs,beans,peas, and sweet corn. Encourage you partner to consume a caffeinated beverage before sex. You can also try having sex every other day to make sure your ovulation days are covered.

    There are no guaranteed ways you can do to be able to conceive a baby boy. The TTC kit is designed to help you boost your chances of conceiving however there are no studies done if it can help you conceive a baby boy. There are a few things you can try though. You need to create a more alkaline environment as it is favorable for baby boy sperms. It means you need to avoid acidic foods are eat more red meat, eggs, fish, beans, peas, mushroom, zucchini, sweet corn, raisins, bread and salty foods. These foods may create a more alkaline pH level in the vagina. Also, when women achieve orgasm during sex, their bodies produce a substance that makes the vagina more alkaline, which benefits boy sperms.

    It is still okay to try and get pregnant in your mid 30′s and does not pose a lot of risk compared to trying to conceive in your 40′s. However, it can be a little challenging than trying to get pregnant in your 20′s. It is recommended that you take a prenatal multivitamin containing folic acid and B vitamins to prevent the risks of miscarriage and birth defects. And to ensure a healthy pregnancy, it is recommend you see your doctor for a pre-conception visit when you’re ready to begin trying to get pregnant.

    To determine the best time for you to have intercourse would depend on cycle dates and the length of your cycle among other things. It is possible for a woman to start ovulating right after her period so you may start trying then. Try to have intercourse every other day to ensure that your ovulation days are covered. Or, you may try using an ovulation prediction kit to help you determine when you are about to ovulate so you can have intercourse.

    Even though you both already have children of your own, it is best that both of you have yourselves a reproductive exam to rule out any problems. Also, there are tips you can try in order to conceive a boy although there are no guarantees. You need to achieve a more alkaline environment as this is favorable to boy sperms. You need to eat alkaline foods such as red meats, beans, zucchini, eggs and oats. Having an orgasm during sex also makes your vaginal environment alkaline.

    We have five girls and would like to try again for a boy. We had a miscarriage the Friday before Mother’s Day my second miscarriage that I’ve had in May. The first miscarriage was back in 1998 also right around mother’s day. Is it possible that my body is rejecting the boys? My first miscarriage was a baby boy and I lost him due to trauma @ almost 5 months. I didn’t know I was having a boy until the nurse came in to say that she was sorry He would of been a beautiful boy with his jet black hair. I don’t know what sex our last baby was that we miscarried because I was early in pregnancy. It would be nice to have a boy but we just want a healthy baby. our miscarriage is hard to deal with and I don’t want to go through another one. So again my question is Is it possible that my body is rejecting the baby if it’s a boy?
