Timing Ovulation (And Manipulating Vaginal PH Acidity) to Conceive a Girl


Visitors: 2,208

If you want to have a baby girl or daughter, there are several variables during the course of your fertility cycle that you can manipulate and / or control to help to greatly increase your odds. This article will discuss natural and inexpensive ways to do this.

The first key to having a baby girl is conceiving prior to ovulation. Here's why this is important:

X (Girl) Sperm Are Slower, But Can Survive Longer Than Y (Boy) Sperm: When trying to conceive, a man's sperm contains chromosomes that during conception will produce either a male or female baby. If sperm containing a Y chromosome fertilize the egg first, a boy baby is the result. If, however, you can manipulate certain variables to get an X (girl) chromosome-containing sperm to fertilize the egg first, then the conception will results in a baby girl.

To do this, it's important to understand that the girl (X) sperm are pretty hardy and can survive for much longer than the boy sperm in harsh and acidic vaginal PH / conditions. You can use these factors to your advantage.

Timing Of Ovulation To Conceive A Girl: If you want to have a daughter, you should schedule conception three days prior to the day you ovulate. That's because the X (girl) sperm can survive and wait for your egg, but Y (boy) sperm generally can not.

Obviously, knowing exactly when you ovulate is vital to be able to time this right. If you're late, then you'd significantly lower your chances of having a girl, since conceiving much closer to ovulation will favor a baby boy (because the Y sperm are faster and will typically reach the egg first. )

There are many ways that women track their ovulation, including observing the position of the cervix and its mucus and taking your basal temperature. But, I find these methods to be too difficult to interpret and too subjective to be completely accurate. That's why I much prefer ovulation predictor kits. Of these, I prefer the saliva kits because they are inexpensive, reusable, and extremely accurate.

Vaginal PH And Acidity To Increase The Odds For A Girl Baby: Of course, conceiving three days before ovulation is only one piece of the puzzle. To really optimize your odds, you'll also need to create a highly acidic vaginal PH / environment. That's because the girl sperm can easily handle this while the boy sperm can not. An acidic vaginal PH will favor having a daughter while an alkaline one will favor having a son.

First, you'll need to test your PH using testing strips to see where you naturally are and how much acidity you need to add to get into the “girl zone. " Some women are naturally acidic and some are naturally alkaline (one of the reasons having boy or girl babies runs in families). You can get the PH strips at health food stores or online.

Luckily, you can change your PH through douching with specific formulas based on where you fall or by avoiding or consuming specific foods. Optimally, you'll want to do both, but I know some people prefer not to douche. You can add acidity with foods, but you'll have to be more diligent about it.

Intercourse Positioning To Conceive A Daughter / Baby Girl: In addition to conceiving three days prior to ovulation (after altering your vaginal PH), it's also recommended that you conceive using intercourse positions that deposit the sperm further away from the cervix. Doing so will give the weaker boy sperm more distance to travel.

If you've manipulated all of the variables correctly, you'll make it much easier for the girl sperm to reach and fertilize the egg first, while making it much more difficult for the boy sperm to do the same.
