How to Conceive a Girl Naturally

Updated on March 12, 2016

Female Sperm

There are two different of kinds of sperm. One kind carries an X chromosome and would create a baby girl if it fertilized an egg. The other carries a Y chromosome and would create a baby boy if it fertilized an egg. We are going to focus on the sperm carrying a X chromosome, which I will refer to as a female sperm.

Female sperm has distinctive differences from male sperm in terms of their motility or ability to swim. If female sperm were a runner, it would be a one of endurance. Male sperm on the other hand would be a sprinter. Female sperm can travel for a longer period of time because it doesn't use all it's energy up moving as fast as possible. Female sperm is like the tortoise in the race; slow and steady. These differences are part of what we can use to increase the chances of conceiving a girl.

Ovulation

Even though female sperm are slower than male sperm, we can use their endurance to help conceive a baby girl. Since we know the male sperm will win a short term race, we want to avoid that. This means that intercourse should be avoided at the end of the ovulation cycle. Don't so the deed within 24 hours before or after ovulation. The best chance of having a girl will be if intercourse occurs at the very first sign of ovulation. If you follow this advice, chances are that the male sperm will swim as fast as they can looking for the egg and will waste all of their energy away before they ever find it. This leaves only the females swimming around by the time the egg is available for fertilization. Use the links below to help you determine when you are ovulating or simply purchase some ovulation tests.

The Link Between Body Temperature, Ovulation, and Pregnancy

How to Calculate Your Ovulation

Shallow Penetration

Because of the speed of the male sperm compared to that of the female sperm, deep penetration gives the male sperm the best chance at success. This means, for a girl, you need to keep the penetration shallow. Also, after the deed is done, don't lay in bed. Get up, use the restroom, take a shower etc. If you don't move, your giving the fast little male sperm and advantage.


Some of the best positions for shallow penetration include:

  • Woman on top: this gives the woman more control over the depth of the thrust.
  • Spooning
  • Missionary

Acidity

Female sperm are surprisingly resilient. They can survive in environments that male sperm cannot. Since sperm more alkaline by nature, they tend to like being and thrive better in alkaline environments. This means places that have a more basic pH level.

Since female sperm can handle an acidic environment better than male sperm, you will want to make your body inhospitable to male sperm. One method of doing this is to flush the vagina out with a water and vinegar solution 30 minutes prior to intercourse. Another method is making sure the woman climaxes before the man. This changes the pH of the environment before the sperm is introduced. You can also do this by increasing the acidity of your diet.

The following foods are helpful in developing a higher pH environment:

  • Bread
  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Buttermilk
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Corn
  • Cranberries
  • Plums
  • Prunes


Although alcohol, tobacco, sodas and sugar increase the acidity of your body, I would not recommend consumption while trying to conceive.


Supplements

Acidilophis and Vitamin C both help to lower pH levels.

      I know that they can identify the differences between the two because they can actually put sperm into a machine and come out with pure male sperm or pure female sperm.

      I wonder what the evidence is that female sperm is a long distance runner while male sperm is a sprinter. I guess there are methods to determine which which sperm is which. I would love to read the experiments they did, did they set up races between the 'boys' and the 'girls'?

      I knew there were methods but never knew what they were until I started researching for this hub. It is funny now because every one of these fit us as we conceived our girl.
