The main thing in the family is a strong, healthy child. But very often in families there are also long disputes about the desired sex of the child: one parent wants a male and the other prefers only girls. When the family already has a child, then for complete harmony and balance they usually want a second child of the opposite sex. And young fathers, and generally have a strong belief about the heir. How to conceive a boy – a vital question.
Specialists are reluctant to speak on the topic of programming the sex of a future child. This is still not very ethical. Moreover, in some countries there is still a phenomenon such as selective abortions, where only children of a certain sex are left behind. Barbarism, no matter how you turn it. However, if you really want to, you can probably influence the nature somehow! Our author, the mother of a wonderful boy, told about her experience and the experience of girlfriends who also have sons. And Elena Mariuta, a specialist in sex planning, commented on popular methods.
Remember the school program. XX are chromosomes of women, XY are chromosomes of men. If a woman’s egg is fertilized by a sperm with an X chromosome, a girl will be born, if a sperm with a Y chromosome is a boy. It is proved that the most active Y-sperm cells live a bright but short life, while the less active X, on the contrary, die much later. So, our task is to “catch” Y-chromosomes.
On the day of ovulation, the chances of conceiving a boy are higher than on other days, because an alkaline environment for Y is favorable. It remains to decide on the date. Usually ovulation occurs 14 days before the beginning of the menstrual cycle. In a 28-day cycle, this is the 14th day. However, deviations are possible due to banal stress or illness. So be alert!
“I didn’t plan the sex of the child,” says the mother of a 9-year-old son. – But, looking at my personal calendar of 2007, I realized that the pregnancy came on the day of ovulation. Our Maxim was born! It was a coincidence.
