How to get pregnant with girl

Have you been trying to have a girl but with little success? If yes, then you’re in luck. I’m going to share with you the most popular (and most successful) methods for conceiving a little girl. Some of these methods might not be considered scientific but many people (me included) swear by them so they are sure will increase the chances of getting a baby girl.

Some of the things you are going to learn about include:


There are simple methods that have been found to increase the chances of conceiving a girl significantly.

how to conceive a girlIt is common knowledge that the man’s semen contains millions of sperm cells, one of which is responsible for fertilization of the female egg.

Each sperm cell might contain either the X or Y chromosome.

Fertilization of the egg by a sperm cell containing X chromosome leads to the conception of a girl while a Y chromosome leads to the conception of a boy.

Natural Strategies for Child Gender Selection

The following are some strategies you can use to naturally increase the chances of the egg being fertilized by a sperm cell with an X chromosome:

a. Understand your ovulation cycle. You can create a chart indicating the days of the months during which you experience occasions such as ovulation and monthly periods.

After you know this, you will increase your chances of conceiving a girl by first, having sexual contact with your husband within four days to when you will be ovulating.

Secondly, you should ensure that you have sex every day after your monthly periods have stopped.

This strategy can be used when you are not sure when you will begin to ovulate next. The cells with X chromosomes, having a longer lifespan, will then always be available in case the ovaries start to release eggs so that ovulation can take place.

b. Try to achieve lower vaginal pH. Sperm cells carrying X chromosomes are known to survive longer in acidic conditions than in alkaline surroundings.

You can, therefore, eat a diet that helps to lower body and vaginal pH for better chances of conceiving a girl.

Examples of foods to consume are fruits and leafy vegetables.


When you want to conceive a girl using this method, you should consult a doctor who can then recommend an artificial insemination procedure.

The semen will then be introduced directly into your uterus or fallopian tubes to allow for fertilization.


First, you will need to understand how to calculate your lunar age. You can then use the Chinese conception chart to calculate a future day when the lunar age coincides with a girl-conceiving period.

You can then have sex on those days when you expect to conceive a girl.

In case you have been wondering about how to have a girl or even a boy, the above strategies will go a long way in making your dream come true. The results might not be readily forthcoming, but the chances are increased.

How to Have a Boy or Girl Through Scientific Methods

Many couples, or even singles who want to get pregnant,  would love to have control over the gender of the child they bear at any given time rather than leaving it to nature. Fortunately, there is sufficient scientific knowledge that can be used to increase the odds of having a specific gender.

It does not take a genius to learn how to have a girl through scientific methods or natural conception and gender selection.

In fact, there are various approaches that are recommended for those looking up information on how to have a girl or how to have a boy.

You can also find details on about using the Chinese Calendar here.

Here is a brief look at how you can conceive a girl child through scientific interventions.

The biology of sperm cells

The gender of a child depends primarily on the father’s sperm cells which can be male or female.

Male sperm cells carry Y-chromosomes and are said to swim very fast, have a low resilience and die fast (within 2-3 days of ejaculation).

spermFemale sperm cells on the other hand contain X-chromosomes and are said to be slightly larger (carrying 2.8% more DNA) than male cells. They are more resilient (taking up to 5 days) and swim a lot slower.

This is the single most important characteristic of sperm cells that is used as foundation in most information regarding gender selection.

As a matter of fact, it is the same used when looking to boost your chances of conceiving a boy as well.

Scientific ways of conceiving a girl

As aforementioned, male sperm cells contain Y-chromosomes and will result in the conception of a boy child if they fertilize the egg.

Similarly, female sperm cells containing the X-chromosomes will result in the conception of a girl child. In order to scientifically intervene in the conception of a child, the male and female sperm cells need to be separated.

There are two main methods used:

a) Ericsson Technique

– this technique relies on the swim speed of sperm cells. Since male cells swim
faster than female, a special sorting technique is used to isolate them based
on their swim speed.

Once done, the same kind is used in artificial

b) Micro-sorting

– this is another popular technique used in separating male sperm cells from
female cells. It is based on the fact that female sperm cells are slightly
large in diameter than male sperm cells as they contain more DNA.

A dye is applied to the sperm cells and large female cells are expected to absorb more of the dye.

These two techniques enjoy a high success rate, but are not a guarantee that you will get a girl. In both cases, you have a 9 out of 10 chance of getting a girl and 3 out of 4 for a boy.

There are various recommendations for those who want to learn how to have a girl using natural means.

These include timing ovulation, increasing intake of certain nutrients, shallow penetration ejaculation and having intercourse 4-5 days before menses among others.

Compared with these methods, scientific options offer the best solution if you want to be at least 90% sure. It simply uses rigid science that can be used to isolate the female sperm cells and use them to fertilize the egg.
