I really only want 2 kids, I got my girl so I'm hoping that I will get a boy pretty soon. If I get another girl I guess I'll have to have more than 2 lol.


I have a list of timing, positions, and some supliments to help make a boy, but is there anything else?


I heard that a lime douche can help for a girl... Is there anything like that to make me my boy??

Since alkaline conditions are more favorable to Y-producing sperm Dr. Shettles suggests acheiving an orgasm during intercourse. If at all possible, you should try to acheive an orgasm at the same time, or better yet, just before the male orgasm. Female orgasm usually increases the quantity and flow of the natural alkaline secretions that arise close to the time of ovulation.

Two more factors favor male conception. The man should try for deep penetration at the time of his climax. This will help the man deposit the sperm closet to the cervix, where secretions are are more favorable to the Y sperm. Penetration from the rear also ensures the deepest penetration and deposit of sperm near the opening of the cervix.

Another way to help make your vaginal tract more alkaline and more favorable to boy sperm is to use a baking soda douche just prior to intercourse. Shettles no longer recommends this but believes it can help women who are naturally acidic. The douche typically uses about two tablespoons of baking soda mixed thoroughly with a quart of warm water

I can tell you my boys were both conceived the day of ovulation. from what i have heard, the closer to ovulation the best chance of having a boy!

We were TTC a boy! I found out the day before yesterday that we got what we hoped for! We have 2 girls and now we'll have 2 boys.


With our first boy, I just timed ovulations with signs like ECWM and cervical position. We did use deeper penetration positions (doggy style or the "cat"-missionary with him upright). We did make sure I O'ed first.


With this boy, I went a little bit further. I bought cheapie ovulation sticks online, I bought preseed (the lube stuff not the applicator stuff), I charted and I cut out dairy around ovulation time and I took prenatal vitamins, folic acid, vitamin C, drank orange juice instead of milk, ate a lot of red meat
