Y sperm tends to be faster than X sperm and can potentially reach the egg faster. However, they are also weaker and may not last as long. The X sperm may be slow, but they are tough and can stay up to 4 days without weakening.
The Shelters method focuses on how you can align sexual intercourse with your ovulation timing to ensure that you conceive a boy.
Timing your ovulation will help you know the best time to have intercourse. This is important since the Y sperm move faster and can fertilize the egg before an X sperm.
Before you begin trying to conceive, you must check your pH levels. You can do it by getting vaginal testing strips at your local chemist or online. Vaginal pH plays a big role in determining the sex of your baby.
Y chromosomes will not last very long in an acidic environment, which is why you need to increase alkaline levels in your body. Vaginal douching can reduce acidity. However, doing this too much might negatively affect your vaginal health.
The Right Sexual Positions
Since Y sperm are weaker than X sperm, it is best to prioritize sex positions that guarantee deeper penetration. Positions such as doggie style leave the sperm closer to the cervix.
This will give the male sperm a head start to reach the egg and fertilize it. People often say that having sex with the woman on top will lead to a girl, and having sex with a man on top will lead to a boy.
Assisted Reproductive Technology
Many people rely on assisted reproductive technology (ART) to conceive a child.
The Whelan method focuses on increasing the couple’s chance of conceiving a child of the desired sex by accurately timing intercourse. As per this method, it is recommended that couples start having sex 2-3 days before ovulation if they wish to conceive a girl.
However, if they wish to conceive a boy, they should start having intercourse at least 4-6 days before ovulation. As per Whelan’s research, this method has been proven to increase the chances of conceiving a boy by 86% and a girl by 66
