How to Conceive a Girl
- By: Jane
Perhaps you wholeheartedly want to have a girl; and certainly, it is maybe that you have already got a beloved son, and having a girl is icing on the cake. No matter for what kind of reason a couple want a daughter, there are really some simple methods that can improve the possibility to conceive a baby girl. First, let's take a look at the principle for forming the human gender.
Generally speaking, women discharge an ovum in one menstrual cycle, and the sex chromosome of the ovum is all the same: X chromosome. But the sex chromosome in the sperms is divided into two kinds: one kind of sperms has X chromosome and the other kind has Y chromosome.
If the sperm combining with the ovum has X chromosome, the fertilized egg that has formed has XX sex chromosome, namely a baby girl; oppositely, if the sperm combining with the ovum has Y chromosome, the fertilized egg that has formed has XY sex chromosome, namely a baby boy. During sexual intercourse, the number of sperms with Y chromosome among several hundred million sperms that are ejaculated into the vagina for one time takes great advantage as it is twice that of sperms with X chromosome. But, in the end, the number of sperms with Y chromosome is more or less the same as that of sperms with X chromosome or becomes even less.
The sperms with X chromosome (referred to as X sperm hereafter) are those determining the birth of a baby girl, and the characteristics are: it has a relatively big head in the shape of an oval and a relatively short tail, so it is comparatively cumbersome with a slower moving speed; it has stronger acid resistance ability and vitality; and it can survive for 2-3 days in the cavity of uterus or the oviduct after entering the vagina.
The sperms with Y chromosome (referred to as Y sperm hereafter) are those determining the birth of a baby boy, and the characteristics are: it has a relatively small head in the shape of a circle slightly pointed (tip) and a relatively long tail; it swims with a faster speed; with weaker acid resistance ability, it is apt to be frustrated; its surviving time is shorter and it will die soon; and it can only live for 24 hours in the cavity of uterus and oviduct after entering the vagina.
I. Make love before the ovulating
The X sperms are the key factor for conceiving a baby girl. You can only be sure to conceive a girl by accurately grasping the time when the X sperm combines with the ovum after the ovum is discharged and the activity of Y sperms subsides or they die. The best time for making love is about 3--4 days before ovulation. Once the accurate ovulating time is determined, the couple should try to have sexual activity several days before ovulation and should absolutely not make love on the very ovulating day or the next day after ovulation. It is because that the sexual activity before ovulation can let the ovum combine with a X sperm which has more dogged vitality after Y sperms lose their activity and die in succession by a large number before they get the chance to be combined with the ovum. This method will work.
II. Ejaculate in a position that is not too deep and avoid the female's orgasm
The vaginal orifice is the strongest area in terms of acidity, and Y sperms are very fragile and apt to die in the acid environment. If the male ejaculates in a shallow position, the quantity of Y sperms crossing the vagina will be reduced, thus lowering the probability that Y sperm combines with the ovum. When the female has an orgasm, the acidity in the vagina will drop; preventing the female's orgasm from occurring can help maintain the acidity in the vagina, thus reducing the quantity of Y sperms that have finally reach the ovum after making a long hard journey and creating a better chance for the X sperm to finally combine with the ovum.
III. The couple should make love more frequently
For the couple who want to have a daughter, they needn't control to the frequency of sexual activity before the wife gets pregnant. This is because the more frequent the sexual behaviors, the less chance the Y sperms would be produced. However, although you needn't control the frequency of sexual activity, you should not do it excessively in case the male's physical power is consumed too much.
IV. Make the vagina acid
You can let the vagina become an acid environment by utilizing the characteristic that X sperms love acidity , which improves the possibility of giving birth to a daughter. The method is: before making love, dilute the acetic acid with a small amount of clean lukewarm water to rinse the vagina to make the vagina acid, increasing the possibility of giving birth to a girl. But it should be done under the guidance of a doctor because the improper practice will cause vaginitis. That will make you get more kicks than halfpence and would influence your plan to have a baby.
V. The older you are, the more likely to give birth to a girl
The older the couple are, the greater the probability of giving birth to a daughter. This is an irrefutable fact because the age factor will influence the physique of both the male and female. The number of sperms will decrease when aging, and the alkaline secretion in the uterus is reduced year by year due to the change of the physiological hormones when the female becomes older, so the probability to conceive a girl rises greatly.
VI. Apt to give birth to a girl if under pressure
The latest research of Danish psychologists shows that if a female bears strong spiritual pressure, she is most likely to get pregnant with a girl. This is due to the fact that a too nervous female under too strong pressure will produce an intense acid environment which is unfavorable for the survival of Y sperms. Males under long-term pressure can have their number of sperms reduced.
Though it is apt to give birth to a baby girl under pressure, here we are not advising women to get pregnant under pressure because the good health of the mother and baby is more important than the gender of the baby. Everything should follow the order of nature.
VII. The specific vocation results in giving birth to a girl
According to the statistical reports, if a male's job is a driver that working for a long time in a day (e.g. the taxi driver or truck driver), a steward or pilot, an anaesthetist or sedentary office employee exposed to computer radiation for a long time, the likelihood of having a girl is all very high. That is because the testicles are under high temperature, undergo violent changes of atmospheric pressure or radiation, or absorb too much poisonous anaesthetic gas, which leads to the death of Y sperms with weaker vitality and results in great chances for having a girl.
VIII. Vegetarian women or those eating the sweet food are apt to give birth to a girl
British scientists have found that the vegetarian pregnant women are apt to have a daughter. Although there are no other studies probing into the impact of the diet of women before getting pregnant on the gender of their offspring at present, the researches have shown that the quantity proportion of baby boys and baby girls in Britain is 106:100, but the proportion for giving birth to a son vs daughter for vegetarian women is 85:100. The data show that the vegetarian pregnant women are apt to conceive a girl. The content of the sugar and fat in the diet of women has a certain influence on the sex of the fetus. Women liking eating the sweet food are apt to have a girl.
IX. Higher probability to conceive a girl for the first pregnancy if the couple is good-looking
This interesting research is based on statistics which have shown that good-looking couples have a 26% higher chance to have a girl for their first pregnancy. Whether it is reasonable or not still needs to be verified. But the study results reflect the difference in the "evolvement tactics" for human males and females. So, if you want to give birth to a girl, try to get a charming spouse!
