The main guideline is that sexual intercourse occurs near ovulation or even after it
Very couple, or already have a girl at home, or simply by having this common dream, want to have a son. And there are several superstitions that promise to help you determine the sex of the baby, however, none of them have a convincing explanation and not scientific proof.
The popular belief says, for example, that to conceive a boy, the man initiate sexual intercourse, in addition to having sex night and day of the month of odd number. On the other hand: to have a girl, it is recommended that women take the initiative to sexual intercourse and that it occurs during the afternoon, even number days. There is no explanation for this, but many couples think it can’t hurt to try!
Some people believe that to focus more sperm that carry the Y gene (which generates a boy), the man must wear clothes – as underwear, shorts, Bermuda shorts and pants – wider.
Some say, too, that women take longer to get pregnant are more likely to conceive a boy. This is because the mucus of the cervix tends to be thicker, hindering the movement of the sperm, which are slower. But it is important to note that all these ideas have no proof.
However, it is true that there are already some medical guidelines that can help in this regard.
You Can Choose To Have A Boy?
Sang Cha, gynecologist and obstetrician explains, first, how is determined the sex of a baby. “The woman produces egg with the x chromosome, while man produces both x and y sperm. Thus, when the egg is fertilized by sperm x, results in little girl, and when it is fertilized by sperm y, results in little boy,” he says.
The doctor explains that there are guidelines that can help a woman conceive a baby of a particular sex-in this case, male. “It is worth noting that doesn’t always work, but it helps in a lot to have the sex of the baby you want,” he explains.
Sang Cha points out that the diet of women who want to have a boy should be rich in potassium and sodium, in other words, with the presence of meat and fish, for example.
In addition, sexual intercourse must occur near ovulation or even after that. This is because the sperm that carry the Y gene (for boys) are more “nimble” and reach the egg faster than those who carry the gene X (for girls). Another reason is that the male sperm are more fragile and less resistant than the female.
Another guideline is that the woman reach orgasm before the man, because then she will release a mucus that decreases the acidity of the vagina, which will facilitate the movement of the sperm that carry the Y gene, more sensitive.
Flávia Piacentini, 35 years, says that already had two girls and, therefore, wished to have a son. The husband also had this dream, and thus the two do not measured efforts to have a baby of the sex you want. “We’ve tried everything. I had already searched the internet and talked to older people about ideas that could help me in this regard. So I can’t say for sure what was decisive, but I believe it was the date on which sexual intercourse “reports.
Now, with two daughters and a son, Flávia says that, for now, does not intend to have more children.But if she and her husband decide to get pregnant again, they won’t have a preference for the sex of the baby. “If it’s a girl or a boy, the baby will be very welcome,” he says.
“But my advice to expectant mothers who wish to have a child is to talk openly with your doctor about this desire, for that he explain what measures can be taken. And from there it’s also luck! “says Flavia.
Now you know: good medical guidelines can help couples to have a baby of the sex you want. If your dream is having a boy, talk to your Gynecologist/obstetrician to respect and follow correctly the guidelines passed by him – both related to food, such as those pertaining to sexual intercourse.
