Is it true – can sexual position determine baby gender?
Myths, lies old wives tales and hoaxes floating around trying to tie sexual positions to specific baby gender have been around for years – probably since they’ve been making babies! I’m sure you’ve probably read a few by now – have you gotten any answers that have sounded even partly plausible?
Some of my research into how to get the specific baby gender through sexual intercourse positions has resulted in major scientific institutions publicly stating that they have no research that proves one way or the other!
However, I think that I can show you some physiological logic that may make some practical sense – and maybe offer some practical solutions to choose your baby’s gender through specific sexual positions.
Male sperm (the ones with a “Y” chromosome) have been scientifically proven to be fast swimmers, champion sprinters, but with a short life of about 24 hours. The female sperm (those that carry an “X”), are the long-distance athletes. They don’t move as fast as the males, but they can live much longer – typically up to 72 hours in a woman’s body.
If you want a boy, all you have to do is make sure that a sperm with a “Y” chromosome fertilizes the waiting egg – that’s it! On the other hand, if the egg gets fertilized with by a sperm that carries an “X” chromosome, then you’ll bet a beautiful baby girl! Most experts say that whichever sperm fertilizes the egg is a random event – no one has any control over the event. But, given the differences in the sperm, is this really true? Is it really random?
Now that we know these basic characteristics, logic can reveal which sexual positions can take advantage of either sperm’s strong points.
How To Make A Baby Boy
If you want to make a baby boy, you should make it as easy as possible for the “Y” chromosome sperm to win the race to the egg. With great speed, but a short life, that male sperm should be deposited as close to the egg as possible. In this instance, the good old missionary position is best – with maximum penetration and the woman on her back to allow as clear a path as possible. For the best results as the man ejaculates, the woman should move her legs as close to her breasts as possible.
Also, some say that timing is as important as sexual position. The closer that intercourse is to ovulation, the better chance you’ll have a boy. Have frequent intercourse about a day before ovulation. To make sure sperm count is as high as possible, have the man wear boxers – heat destroys sperm, and you want plenty of sperm for a successful implantation.
How to Make A Baby Girl
Given what we know about male vs. female sperm, you would want none – or very few – male sperm to reach the egg. So, for the best chance for a baby girl, you should deposit sperm farther away from the egg – so that the male sperm “die off” early, allowing the slower, but longer lasting female sperm to reach the egg. Shallow penetration should be used here – usually from the rear (doggie-style).
Again, the timing issue is noted as well. Since the female sperm is a slow swimmer, you would want to deliver the sperm no earlier than 4 days before ovulation. And, you ovulate about 14 days into your cycle. This method again uses timing – taking advantage of the slower but longer-lived sperm to make a baby girl. The thought is to have the sperm ready and at the fallopian tube as the egg is released. Don’t forget – no sex for a week afterwards! You might introduce some fast-swimmers into the mix and get a boy!
No matter what you’ve heard if sexual position can determine baby gender, there appears to be some truths to the myths. No guarantees, of course. But logic and reasoning would tell us that it could be possible.
No matter if you end up with a boy or a girl, just be thankful that he or she is born healthy and happy to a loving family!
