While a lot of couples would want to get pregnant with a baby boy, there are others who desire to have a little girl for their own. Especially in societies that are matriarchal, couples desire having a baby girl for their firstborn, believing that she would be more responsible in taking care of her younger siblings later on.
Thankfully, studies on gender selection have determined that there are certain methods that you can try which may increase your probability of having a baby girl. While a 100 percent success rate is not assured, at least you should give these methods a try.
How to Get Pregnant with a Girl
While you need a Y chromosome sperm to conceive of a boy, to have a baby girl, what is required is an X chromosome sperm. This type of sperm will then fertilize the X chromosome egg that is released from the woman’s ovaries. Unlike Y chromosome sperm, X chromosome sperm cells are not particularly agile. They are very slow in swimming through the woman’s reproductive tract. However, do not be fooled by their lack of agility. These sperm cells may be slow, but they have a much longer life span than their Y chromosome counterparts. By keeping these characteristics of X chromosome sperm in mind, we can now take a look at the various methods that will help you to conceive a baby girl.
First of all, considering the fact that X chromosome sperm cells are hardier, it is important to determine the right time to perform intimate relations during the ovulation cycle. To get pregnant with a baby girl, you should start intimate relations with your spouse days before ovulation. The rationale behind this is that because the Y chromosome sperm have a shorter life span, by the time the ovary releases the egg, all these sperm cells would have already died out, leaving only the stronger X chromosome sperm. Because only the X chromosome sperm are left, you have a greater chance of having a baby girl.
Secondly, sexual positions are just as important in conceiving a girl, same as with boys. While conception of a boy requires deep penetration so that the Y chromosome sperm will have a shorter distance to meet the egg, the reverse is true for the X chromosome sperm cell. Because of its longer life span, you only need to perform sexual positions that will allow for shallow deposition of sperm. One very good example is the traditional missionary position.
Last but certainly not least, you also need to take into consideration the pH level in the vagina and cervix. Unlike Y chromosome sperm cells that thrive in an alkaline environment, X chromosome sperm survive in an acidic milieu. To increase your vaginal and cervical acidity, you should wash with vinegar and water and eat more foods that are high in acidity.
