    The major issue here is… if you were trying to conceive a girl, you are lowering your chances.  According to this breakdown, you would be ovulating on Friday September 14th.  The theory is that “girl sperm” swim slower but are more sturdy than “boy sperm” who swim quickly but don’t last as long.  So they say if you have sex for 4-5ish days before ovulation that you would have more of a chance of having a girl because only the girl sperm could live long enough.  However, sperm can live a max of 5 days, so you are really pressing your luck for this. I don’t think having sex on Sept. 7 would have very much chance at all either. 

    I have also heard that if he ejaculates closer to the outside of your vagina (aka not deep) that the area is more acidic and it will be more conducive to the tougher girl sperm.  Also have heard that if you orgasm during the conception sex you are more likely to have a boy (that the extra liquid makes it easier for them to swim/survive).  Who knows if these things are true.  Could be luck, could be true.  They also have “girl foods” and “boy foods” so I would take pretty much everything with a large grain of salt.

    @Schatzie821:  You’ve got the theory right!

    But, even if the theory is right, it still only makes things statistically more likely.  No guarantees.

    apparently it has a lot to do with the ph of your hoo hah.

    alkaline favours boys, acidic favours girls.

    I know you can order ph testing strips from online somewhere. but really, it’s all taking a chance. there is one website called genderselection.com or something, that claims to have a really high accuracy rate, but theire kits are in the hundreds of dollars.

    I think you have a 50% chance of it being right and a 50% chance of it being wrong.

    Which means you have a 50% chance of having a girl and a 50% chance of having a boy.
