Are you about to get pregnant and wonder how to have a boy? You're in luck. I gladly welcome you this areticle where I disclose to you in details a number of things you can do to influence the sex of your baby. These are proven natural means used for many years and attested to by many, some of which are scientifically proven.

But before we consider these methods, though, let's first appreciate how a baby's sex is formed - I guess it'll help better appreciate what you're to do in a bid to conceive a baby boy.

Ready? Here...

How A Baby's gender is determined

A baby's gender is determined at fertilization, so let's attempt to understand how the sex of a baby is formed. Medically, it's established that a male sperm determines the sex of a zygote ( what results from the fusion of a sperm donated by the man with an ovum(egg) donated by the woman which later developed into a baby and therefore, a baby's sex.

The ovum carries an X-chromosome and the sperm carries either an X or Y- chromosome. At fertilization, if an X-chromosome (sperm) fuses with the ovum which is always an X-chromosome the result will be a baby girl (X+ X=XX). If the fusion is between the Y-sperm and the ovum a baby boy will result (X+Y= XY).

It's also established that the Y-sperm swim faster than the X-sperm but the X-sperm is more resilient and can withstand hostile environment better than the Y-sperm. The Y-sperm thus die faster after release.

So, to improve the likelyhood of having a boy, steps taking will aim to improve the chances of the Y instead of the X sperm fusing with the egg. You may now ask, what are these manipulations and how can we go about them? This is exactly what this article is about- so read on!

Having now understood what happens during fertilization, I guess we're now better placed to explore what could be done to influence the happenings during this time to improve chances of conceiving a baby boy.

Gird your loin and let's start...

Ph balance in the body

Ph is a scale of 1-14 that measures the acidity or alkalinity of a system - in this case the cervical area or the reproductive tract. A Ph of 1-6 is considered acidic , 7 is neutral and 8-14 is alkaline.A woman is either acidic or alkaline- the reproductive duct is either acidic or alkaline.

A woman with an acidic reproductive duct is more likely to have a baby girl as this favors the X sperm and the opposite is true for an alkaline woman as an alkaline environment favors the Y sperm.

What to do? Know your Ph level

Carry out a test to know your Ph level with testing trips obtainable from health food stores. If the result indicates akalinity, that's great news- just what you need ; chances of having a boy is high. An acidic result, however, will require some steps to change the level to akalinity.

This can be achieved through either Ph dieting , douching or both. Ph dieting is about adjusting your food intake to eating alkaline food and refrain from eating acidic food. That is, you eat food rich in Potassium, Calcium, Vitamins C, E and B12. Examples are salty food , eggs ,red meat,mushrooms etc.

Douching - Douching is noted to produce the fastest result- impacts the Ph level dramatically when done with the right ingredients. The best approach , however, is to combine both till you get the desired Ph level.

Sex Position

The entrance of the cervical area is believed to be more acidic which from what we learnt earlier on is not favorable for the Y chromosome. During intercourse, experts advised that sex position should be such that it allows for deep penetration- rear entry is recommended. This gives the Y sperm which swim faster a better chance reaching the egg first and not having to swim long distance - remember it's fragile and could die swimming long distance before reaching the egg.

Know when you ovulate

To conceive a baby boy, you need to know the time you ovulate and have sex close to ovulation as possible.

But...

Shhh! save your breath- you're wondering how to tell when you ovulate, I know and I was coming to that.

Here is how... Many are the methods out there but Basal Body Temperature, Saliva testing and Cervical Mucus Observation are not only the most reliable but also inexpensive. With the basal body temperature, also called BBT, you're required to take your body temperature consistently without fail first thing every morning with a thermometer before you get out of bed.

Please, follow the appropriate guide to use for your chosen method.

So having found out when you ovulate, how close to ovulation should intercourse be? Now, here is why this is so important to couples wanting to have a boy.

The life span of the boy sperm is shorter- 3 days (72 hours) at most and can swim faster. The girl sperm on the other hand can survive up to 5 days. Once released if not fertilized , the egg can survive for 12 to 36 hours only. So as you may infer, for a better chance of conceiving a boy, intercourse should be a day before or on the day of ovulation ( or few hours or a day after ovulation, you may say too). This gives the Y sperm (boy sperm) a better chance of fusing with the egg because it swims faster and can reach the available egg ahead of the girl sperm.

Orgasm

The last tip is the magic of orgasm. The secretion accompanying orgasm is a natural way of neutralizing the acidic effect of the cervical area. Intercourse without orgasm , therefore, is fatal to the boy sperm and thus reduces your chances of getting pregnant with a boy.

These are proven natural ways, don't leave your desire to have a boy to chance.

Be warn, though, that these are chance improving steps and not a 100% guarantee that you'll be pregnant with a boy. Many are the success stories( 94% success rate) regarding these methods on how to have a boy, nonetheless. You could be the next and is definitely worth your try.

All the best.
