If you’re wondering how to concieve a boy, look no further. In this article we’ll be taking a look at 3 easy methods you can use to help your changes of conceiving a boy.
If you’re been dreaming about baby blue walls in the nursery and little boys running around in the yard then you’re probably interested in knowing how to concieve a boy. Most doctors and even fertility experts will make claims that it’s impossible to influence the sex of your new baby, although there is a lot of empirical evidence to suggest otherwise.
There are some new parents who would definitely agree with this. They will claim that by changing their diet, using certain positions in the bedroom or even drinking a witches-brew like concoction that they were able to conceive a boy. Most medical professionals will write off these methods as old wives’ tales, however it can’t hurt to try if you’re serious about having a baby boy.
Chinese Birth Calendar
The now infamous Chinese lunar birth calendar claims to be able to predict what gender your new baby will be simply by the date he or she is conceived. The history of the calendar and it’s origins are a little hazy at best though many people claim it provides amazing results. Some people even claim it can be up to 99% accurate, although there aren’t any well known clinical tests to confirm or deny this.
The lunar calendar works using just the mother’s age and the month of conception. If you are serious about using the lunar calendar, some people have suggested your best bet is to attempt conception smack dab in the middle of the “boy months” and avoid conception during the beginning and end of the month.
Use the Right Positions
Another popular theory behind what sex your child will be is the theory about what position you are in when you conceive. One thing we do know about a new baby’s gender is that it is decided by the father and not the mother. Recent theories suggest that deeper penetration during intercourse can actually improve your chances of having a baby boy. This is because the closer you get to the opening of the vagina the more acidic it becomes. Scientists believe male sperm are more susceptible to acidic conditions than their female counterparts, making a deep penetration essential for male sperm survival.
Male sperm actually swim faster than female sperm, so putting them as close to the cervix as possible is key for having a baby boy. Having sex in the doggy-style position allows for a much deeper penetration which can make it easier for male sperm to reach the egg first.
Boxers or Briefs?
Testicles are stored outside of the body for a reason. Sperm are unable to survive in the high temperatures found in the body. Some scientists believe that male sperm are particularly susceptible to high temperatures. Wearing boxers allow testicles to breathe better , allowing them to stay cool enough to support the male sperm. A cold shower or even an ice pack are believed to help as well, although it may be a cold day you know where before a man allows you to put an ice pack on such a sensitive area.
