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!
