Methods that Tell You When to Conceive a Girl

One of the most important questions that appear in the minds of those who would like to have a child that has a certain gender, sounds something like that: “Which is the most appropriate period or even moment for conceiving a girl or a boy?” Due to this question, such persons might look superstitious to the others. But a couple of scientists have discovered, unfortunately only empirically, that there are some moments when a woman has the greatest chances to get pregnant with a baby of the gender she wants. The sex selection methods that tell a couple when to have the sexual intercourse are called timing methods, and the best known such technique is the Shettles one.

Aside from the Shettles Method, there is another famous strategy of gender predetermination that tells to the future parents when the sexual intercourse should occur in order to have a baby of the yearned-for sex. This strategy is called Chinese Calendar Method and it is ancient, astrological and suitable only for entertainment, because its main idea is proven to be false by the simple existence of the twins of different sexes. Moreover, this technique is neither scientifically, nor empirically proven, because, as far as I know, there are no public statistics that would support this strategy.

Since I decided to talk in this short article about the methods that reveal when to conceive a girl, I will describe, in short, each of the previously mentioned techniques: Shettles and Chinese Calendar. But, before doing so, let me tell you a few words about both of them. First and foremost, they are natural strategies of gender selection, in the sense that, according to them, the future baby is conceived in the natural manner, unlike the scientific methods of sex predetermination, in which the future mother gets pregnant in a specialized clinic and the embryos are created in a laboratory.

So, the natural techniques of sex selection have the great advantage that the couple conceives the baby at home. Another important benefit of these natural strategies is that they are not expensive at all; they are almost free, all you have to do is to buy the book of Dr. Shettles which presents his method in detail, or you should consider the cost of using the Internet, a computer and a web browser to find out more information about these natural methods. Anyway, this expense is insignificant in comparison with the huge prices of the scientific methods of sex selection.

Unfortunately, the natural strategies have an important drawback: they are not scientifically proven – some of them are only empirically, and their claimed success rates vary between 70% and 80%, unlike the most reliable scientific method, PGD with IVF, which has a success ratio of 100%. So, having success rates under 100%, the natural ways to conceive a girl are useful only to increase the likelihood of having a baby with the longed-for gender, but they can’t guarantee this gender.

Dr. Shettles’ strategy recommends the scheduling of the sexual intercourse based on the ovulation time. For a daughter, the future parents ought to make love about three days before ovulation. Moreover, Shettles Method also suggests that the woman shouldn’t have orgasm and the deep penetration must be avoided, if a female offspring is wanted.

The Chinese Calendar strategy states that you should use a reliable Gregorian-translated table corresponding to the Chinese Conception Chart, search in that table the row that includes the birth date of the future mother and identify in the selected row the cells which are marked as “girl”; the columns corresponding to the selected cells present the periods in which the woman is more likely to get pregnant with a girl.
