Is it possible to plan the sex of the unborn child?

The desire to have only a daughter or only a little son appears in almost all future parents. But is it possible to plan the sex of the unborn child? In our days, you can meet a variety of, and often conflicting information on this issue.

Planning by blood.

For example, there is an opinion that the sex of the baby can be affected by the rhythm of the sexual life of parents, a few months before the planned conception. Guided by this view, in order for a boy to be born, having sex as often as possible, and prolonged abstinence will reward you with a girl.

Focusing on the method of planning the sex of the child by blood, you should know that the cyclicity of the blood renewal of the sexes is different (the male blood is renewed four times, the female blood is renewed four times). To plan the desired sex of the child by this method, it is necessary to calculate the periods of blood renewal for both spouses. Those who plan a boy, the time of conception should be podgodat to the phase of blood updates of the pope. And the probability of a girl's birth will increase in the event that conception is necessary for the time of the "new" blood of the future mother.


By the assumption of many, in establishing sex, not the least role is played by diet. According to this theory, about three weeks before the supposed date of conception, a certain diet should be followed, and for the woman the period is prolonged for another 1.5 to 2 months after fertilization. The probability of a girl's birth will increase if salt, smoked meat, buns are minimized, and include fish, eggs, nuts, sour-milk products, fruits in the diet. The opportunity to conceive a male child will appear if meat, yeast bread, cereal, salted and smoked delicacies are preferred, and seafood dishes should be limited.

Parity of age.

Among all the other theories, one can also find a way of planning the sex of a child oriented at the parity of the woman's age. In this case, everything is simple! When planning a girl, the parity of the full years of the woman and the month of conception coincide. With the boy everything is exactly, on the contrary - for an even age, conception is desirable in odd months, and for odd age, respectively, in even ones. In women of odd age, the possibility of conception of a male child increases during the year, and for women of even age, the conception of a female child will dominate these days.

In addition, you can calculate the sex of the child according to the lunar calendar, the ancient Chinese tables or the Japanese method ... The Internet offers a lot of unique opportunities and offers to compile an individual calendar for the conception of a child of a certain sex (of course, not free of charge), guaranteeing hardly probable, not absolute probability.

I do not want to disappoint all those who are trying to plan the sex of the future child - but it is quite clear that there are no guarantees in this matter.

To a certain extent scientifically-explainable, a method based on life expectancy and motility of spermatozoa, and the interval between ovulation is considered. It is known that the sperm responsible for the conception of the boy - bearing the Y-chromosome, are more mobile, but less viable. Their life expectancy is about 24-36 hours. In turn, the spermatozoa carrying the X chromosome are slower than the male ones, but they are more stable, and their life span varies within 48-72 hours. According to this technique, the most favorable moment of in vitro fertilization is the day of ovulation, which usually occurs in the middle of the woman's menstrual cycle. And if you are planning a girl, the sexual act should occur 2-3 days before the expected ovulation, after which it is recommended to refrain from sexual intercourse for several days. The boy is more likely to "get" on the day of ovulation. However, and this method is very approximate - mainly because it is quite difficult even with the help of all modern diagnostic test systems to accurately determine the moment of ovulation.

In the end, whatever way you take advantage of - the main thing is to love your baby from the very first moments, which very soon will be born and will be the most desired and happy.
