Have sex 2-3 days before ovulation

Female sperm are bigger than male sperm, but that means they are also slower swimmers. The girls also live longer than the boys. This means that by having sex a few days before ovulating, rather than after, you might be able to give your girls a head start. Since sperm can live up to five days, the tricky part is figuring out when to have sex as far from ovulation that you possibly can, but still while the sperm are alive. The reasoning in this is that the males will not make it to the uterus, but the girls will. This is a very tricky thing to time, and by ovulating sooner than you expected or having an irregular cycle can leave you conceiving a boy despite all your hard work! Also remember that after you have sex before ovulation, make sure not to have any more unprotected sex until at least two days AFTER you ovulate.

Stay shallow

Girl sperm love acidic environments, like the entrance to the vagina. Therefore, your partner should try to make sure that penetration is shallow and that sperm are located as close to the entrance to the vagina as possible. This will inhibit the male sperm and give the females a better chance.

No orgasm

Umm, sadly, you also might want to skip the orgasm when trying to conceive a girl. Female orgasms make the vagina more alkaline, just the thing that girl sperm hate. Also try positions like missionary or woman on top that might make for more shallow penetration.

Change your diet

You can change your body’s acidity and PH through your diet, which might help you to give your girl sperm a more acidic environment. You need to make sure to eat less sodium, potassium and caffeine, while increasing your calcium and magnesium. Chicken, turkey, rice, raspberries, blueberries, green beans, cherries, cheese, corn and eggs are all good choices for mommies looking for baby girls. You can also take calcium and magnesium supplements.

Old wives’ tales and such

There are a ton of old wive’s tales to predict how to have a girl. Some old legends indicate that the woman should seduce the man if they want to get pregnant with a girl. Also, having sex on the night of a full moon is supposed to produce a girl. How’s this one? Eat lots of chocolate or sweets in general. There are also wives tales that say having sex in the early afternoon will produce a girl.

Of course none of these methods are guaranteed, but there are a ton of people who swear by them! If you are curious to whether or not you can have a girl, give these methods a try! It is not going to hurt anything, and you just might get your wish!

    My husband and I have two beautiful little boys. With both pregnancies we wanted Boys and we got them! We are now trying and praying for a baby girl. My family is ALL girls and my husbands side is ALL boys. Any mommies out there that have boys and finally had a girl, did any of you do anything different diet/sexual wise, that upped your chance??
    I understand that the male determines the gender of a baby, but being as though my husbands family is all boys and we have had two boys, are our chances of conceiving our “much wanted” baby girl very low or is it irrelevant that his side of the family is all boys?
    Any suggestions or tips PLEASE and THANK YOU!!

    After having 2 boys the third baby was a girl, it’s all in the timing,you must have sex 2 or 3 days before ovullation, girl sperm live longer than boys by the time ovulatin came around the boy sperm die off and leaving the girls to do their job. Taking temp. every day helped, you need to know when you ovilate for this to work

    My name is Brittany, I am soon to be 20 years old. I currently have the nexplanon implant for about 2 years almost, and have a doctor appointment this Monday to get it removed because my boyfriend and I are planning to have a bundle of joy! We will love our bundle of joy either way, but we are really wanting and HOPING for a baby girl … I’ve read a few tips online on how to conceive a girl bit Idk if they’re 100% true. Does anyone have any tips, ideas, or methods that has worked for them to conceive a girl???
    • And also, because of the nexplanon, I haven’t had a period in almost a year. After the removal, how long will it be before I have a normal/regular period? How long will it take to ovulate, & how long will it take to get Pregnant?

    I am the mother of 2 boys and my partner and I are currently planning to have our 3rd and last baby. I would absolutely love it if this was a girl!!
    I have been tracking my ovulation for the last 5 months and no exactly when I ovulate, we have also been eating foods rich in calcium and magnesium aswel as taking supplements. The problem is my vaginal PH when testing is always high which is showing a more alkaline environment rather than acidic which I know is better to conceive a girl, can you advise any ways in which I can lower my PH especially just before ovulation to enhance my chances of having a girl. I have been looking at the douche kits and not sure if I should try this?
    Thanks Anna

    I hate the term “female sperm”, they are X sperm. it isn’t a female until it implants an egg and starts to develop into a baby girl. it also gives the notion that somehow it’s human and deserves the same rights. nevertheless I’ll give this a try as I’ve always wanted a girl and a boy and have a beautiful 13 month old boy. however for the sake of sounding intelligent please from now on refer to sperm as X or Y sperm. I hate that science does not do this more and it’s
    even worse when I read it from those who are clearly not doctors.
