Is it possible to choose the sex of our baby? This is a question many parents ask when they go after their much desired child. Everything has already been tried, including eating meat to have a boy, or chocolate to have a girl.
Thanks to the selection of embryos, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, it is possible to plan the sex of the baby to be born, but these methods are generally expensive and not available to everyone. What we are talking about here refers to Shettles method.
It is not an exact science, but it is available to all parents. It does not require medications, the costs are very low, and it is relatively safe. Proponents argue that the technique has a 75 percent chance of conceiving the desired sex.
The method consists of scheduling sexual intercourse on specific days of the woman's cycle. The sperm that carry the Y chromosomes, which give rise to a child, move faster but are smaller, more delicate, weaker and live less time than the sperm that carry the X chromosomes which, on the contrary, give rise to a girl, they move slower, are larger, sturdier and live longer.
Therefore, the method says that if you want to have a boy, you should have sex as close to ovulation as possible. And if you want to have a girl, you should have intercourse two to four days before ovulating. The question now is knowing when you ovulate. This is the only downside to the method, as you will need to take your body temperature every day to calculate the time of ovulation or use an ovulation prediction kit.
Well, in summary:
If you want a boy
You must have sex 24 hours before or after ovulation. Intercourse should be performed in a position that allows deeper penetration, and the man should avoid tight pants and hot baths before intercourse to prevent heat from killing Y sperm.
If you want a girl
You should have intercourse 3 or 4 days before ovulation. Intercourse must be carried out in a position that does not allow a very deep penetration so that fertilization is slower. And the man can take a hot bath before intercourse so that the Y sperm do not survive the heat and the X sperm.
