During my research on “how to conceive a boy“, I found out that ovulation timing is one of the factors you’ll want to consider. It’s not the most crucial factor, but hey, every little bit helps, right? What “ovulation timing” means with respect to baby gender selection is timing when you have intercourse in relation to ovulation.
So, the question is should you have intercourse close the time the egg is release or a few days after? If you’re trying to conceive a son, try to have intercourse as close to ovulation as possible. The means as soon as you think your about to ovulate (You can usually tell a few days prior. See the tips below.), have intercourse. Then, at the latest, have it again when you’re fairly certain the egg has been released.
Make Sure Those Sperm are There and Ready for Action
Really the easiest way to make sure the male Y sperm are present and active enough to do some go is to make love every day as soon is you know your ovulation time is near. Now, you may be thinking all that lovin’ is going to lower dad-to-be’s sperm count and result in no pregnancy at all. For some reason, this is a fairly prevalent myth, but fortunately it’s only partly true. In reality, having intercourse every two or three days shouldn’t cause any problems.
How can you Time Your Ovulation?
New to ovulation timing? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Plenty of parents just let nature take it’s course and never worried about timing Mom’s ovulation cycle, so it’s not a big deal if you don’t know how yet.
The easiest ovulation predictor is the regularity of your cycle. Just mark your calendar one the day your period starts. If you’re cycle is fairly regular, about 14 days from then, you should ovulate again. The 9th to the 15th days are when you want to have intercourse because those days are when you’re most fertile. Remember, though, if you’ve recently stopped birth control it can take up to six months for your cycle to normalize again.
Taking your temperature will give you some indication because your body temp will fall a little (usually to around 97º F). Right before you ovulate. To conceive a boy, start getting busy when you notice that temperature drop. Your vaginal fluids can also be an ovulation predictor. Right before ovulation, you’ll probably be a little dry and the have relatively clear, smooth discharge during ovulation. Other times, any discharge will be rather sticky and yellowish.
