Chinese Calendar for Gender Selection

The Chinese Birth Gender Chart

What is Chinese calendar? and can we use it to predict the gender of babies?

The tool that we used to predict the gender of a baby is actually a chart (normally called Chinese Birth Gender Chart), which was invented by the Chinese 700 more years ago. To tell the gender of an unborn baby, you only need to know two things; the mother's age and month at conception. For example, if a 37 years old woman conceive on March, then she will get a boy!

Sounds easy. In fact, the accuracy rate of using the Chinese Birth Gender Chart for gender selection is surprisingly high, according to people who had used the chart. It is also natural and safe.

Wait! Here comes the most important part of using the chart. Both the mother's age and the month at conception must based on the Chinese (Lunar) calendar. In other words, you need to know how to convert the Western (Gregorian) calendar into the Chinese calendar if you want to get an accurate prediction result.

Fortunately, there are free websites provide information about the Chinese calendar

  • The Hong Kong Observatory - Website provides Gregorian-Lunar calendar conversion tables from year 1901 to 2100.

  • Chinese Birth Gender Chart - Website provides detail information, examples and a Gregorian-Lunar calculator, which help you to use the chart easily and correctly.

Two important tips regarding the calculation of lunar age.

  1. When a baby is born, he/she is already one year old.
  2. All people gain 1 year of age at the Chinese new year.

So, for example, if John was born on January 23, 2006, then he was 2 years of lunar age on February 23, 2006 (because Chinese new year was on January 29, 2006). You can find more information about the lunar age calculation here. Good luck!
