I was recently asked this question and the person asking this had already attempted to conceive using this method. She wanted to produce a boy baby and was wondering if her attempt (and the positioning that she used) made this more or less likely. I will explain why the woman being on top during intercourse can sometimes work either way (especially since I didn’t know any of the other variables at play) in the following article.
How Intercourse Positions Are One Thing That Can Influence Baby Gender. (And How The Woman Being On Top Fits Into This Equation:) The person who wrote the email only told me one of the techniques that she used in her quest to get a son. All I knew was the sexual position that she had used. She was right that this could affect baby gender. But, this is only one out of three variables.
However in terms of sexual positioning, there are really two things to consider. You want to consider the depth of the penetration and also whether or not the woman has an orgasm. If you want a boy baby, your goal should be deeper penetration or closer proximity to the cervix. This is because the sperm that produces male babies is weaker and doesn’t survive as long. So in terms of helping the odds along, deeper penetration does help.
But, the woman on top positioning allows for a lot of variations. The woman can basically control whether the penetration is shallow or not. If the woman wants a boy baby, she would be much better off positioning herself so that her cervix is closer to the sperm deposit. In terms of having an orgasm, this is under your control as well. For a son, the woman should have an orgasm because the fluids that are produced by the woman during this process makes her vaginal tract more alkaline.
This helps increase your odds of success because boy producing sperm thrive in alkaline surroundings while girl producing sperm thrives in acidic surroundings. (That’s why if you want a daughter, the woman should avoid orgasm if she is trying to conceive.) The woman who sent the email did not give me very much information so I had no way of knowing which category best described her. Also, the optimal sexual position for deep penetration is going to vary depending on you and your partner. Sometimes, the female on top positions are not the best way to accomplish this. You might also consider rear entry of using a pillow to elevate and angle your hips.
Having An Orgasm Is Not The Only Thing That Helps With Being Alkaline: While the woman having an orgasm can help you with your lessening your acidity, it’s only one way, and, for the most part, it’s not as effective as some other methods. You can usually change your PH and acidity level (to become more alkaline) by either changing your diet (only temporarily, until you become pregnant), or using douches that often require more specific ingredients than what you would buy over the counter in your local grocery store. If you are really motivated, you can combine all of these methods (along with orgasm) to give you the highest degree of success.
Another thing that is important is precisely when you conceive. (Again, I did not have this information from the person who asked this question.) For a boy, you want to conceive right as ovulation occurs. So, since I do not know her time line or her acidity, I have no way of knowing if she met the other two variables which help you produce a boy. But, she was right that sexual positions do play a role somewhat. However, since I had so little information, I could not form an opinion as to whether her odds were increased or not.
