Best Position to Conceive a Boy



Whether you’re absolutely dying for a baby boy your first time around or are just hoping to add a little guy to your brood of girls, experiment with these sex positions, as well as diet and timing tips, to help up your odds of conceiving a male.

Try it from behind

Also known as “Doggie Style,” this position is highly recommended to couples hoping to conceive a boy, says Stacy Rybchin, founder of My Secret Luxury. Why? “Because it allows for deeper penetration, and consequently, during ejaculation, the male sperm get deposited closer to the cervix.” In general, male sperm are faster, but they don’t live as long as females do, so the less distance they have to travel, the better!

Do it standing up

Apparently to conceive a boy, all you gotta do is have sex standing up! This position, like doggie style, enables deep penetration and is also thought to give the faster male sperm an advantage seeing as sperm must swim against gravity to get to the egg. While not backed by science, it’s worth a shot if you’re hoping for a male.

Choose a position that makes you orgasm

Seriously, we’re not joking! In short, an orgasm causes your vagina to become more alkaline. Fortunately for you, this shift in pH balance majorly favors male sperm, meaning they have a greater shot at actually reaching that egg and fertilizing it first. So go ahead, enjoy yourself, if you catch our drift (hint, hint)…

Wait until you ovulate

Timing is, of course, everything when it comes to making a baby. Believe it or not though, the day you do the deed (and the days you don’t too!) can potentially influence the gender of your child. To increase your chances of a boy, experienced nurse and midwife Carmen Kosicek, RN, MSN, advises avoiding intercourse in the days (at least four or five) leading up to ovulation. Then do it the day of, she directs. Since male sperm are faster swimmers, the theory here is that’d they’d reach the egg first before the females. “Now, the trick is figuring out exactly when you ovulate!” Don’t worry ladies — there are kits for that.

Consume more calories

And eat cereal for breakfast! “A study conducted by researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK suggests that upping your calorie intake by at least 400 calories per day and consuming cereal especially, along with bananas, fish, vegetables and other high energy foods, can help lead to conception of a boy,” reveals Dr. Ava Cadell, spokesperson for The Experience Channel and renowned love and sex therapist. Interesting, huh?

Have him drink coffee

A half hour or so before getting it on, have your man down a strong cup of caffeinated coffee or a large soda! Dr. Shettles, author of How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby, believes that this will give sperm an extra boost, particularly the males.


When to Conceive a Boy



The X and Y chromosomes are the two sex cells that every man has in his body. So, naturally if you want to conceive a boy it is the Y chromosome that you will want to fertilize the egg. Doesn’t this sound simple? Yes, but there are some factors which can have an effect on the outcome you want.

Y chromosomes swim faster than the X chromosomes so are usually the ones which will reach the egg first. But what you need to consider is that these sperm do not have the ability to survive long in a woman’s vagina because of the acidic PH level in it.

Many couples trying to make a bay will arrange to have sex over a number of days in the hope that on one of these days they can create the little boy that both their hearts die. I guess there is nothing wrong with using this method as long as the couples are not too bothered about what their baby is going to be. Also what they need to understand is the sperm is going to released several days before the woman ovulates and so those are carrying the Y chromosome will be weak and will probably die before the egg has even been released.

how to conceive a baby boy

To be able to conceive a boy, the man needs to try his hardest to ensure that the sperm enters the woman’s vagina as she is just ovulating. To help determine when this is going to happen one can now purchase ovulation prediction kits and the most accurate ones are those that use a woman’s saliva. It is vital that you remember that if you are off by just one or two days the likelihood of you having a girl is greatly increased.

Also before you try to conceive you need to know the level of Ph in the woman’s vagina. If the woman has an acidic vagina then it is not something that male sperm find conducive. For a woman to be able to conceive a boy the level of alkaline in her vaginal tract needs to be high. By douching or eating/avoiding certain foods she can make changes to the acidity in her vagina and to save money she can even make the douches at home.

Now you have to add another piece to the mix and that is positioning. If you want to conceive a little boy, then you should go with a sexual intercourse position that will place the sperm as close to the woman’s cervix as possible. This will often mean much deeper penetration for most couples. It would also be wise for the woman not to obtain an orgasm as this will help in their quest to have a son. I am sure that once you have delivered your baby, in the end, it will not matter what you have as long as your bundle of joy is healthy and has all of its fingers and toes!
