The Shettles Method has been around a long time, named for Dr. Landrum Shettles. The Shettles Method has the advantages of bearing no cost and requiring no medical treatments to conceive.Men produce two types of sperm which already contain the sex chromosome, pre-determining the sex of the baby-to-be. The X chromosome being female and Y chromosome being male. Dr. Shettles based his methods around that the male sperm are smaller, weaker and faster than the female sperm, which are bigger, stronger and slower. Therefore he was able to come to the following suggestions to help couples try and choose the sex of their baby. So the Shettles Method is basically about how you can use these differences to try to influence the gender of your baby.
There are numerous medical articles that examine why the Shettles Method is flawed and most medical studies have not been able to replicate the numbers that Shettles himself claims to have seen. In fact, some studies have shown that those using the Shettles Method may actually have trouble conceiving.
Speical sexual position is said to increase your chances of conceiving a boy. The closer to the opening of the vagina, the more acidic the woman’s reproductive tract is. If you want to conceive a girl, you’d better Use sexual positions with deep penetration, this gives preference to the supposedly faster, but less hearty Y-bearing sperm.
Orgasms and Vaginal pH level
An alkaline environment favours baby boys, killing the female sperm first. This leaves more Y sperm to reach the egg.Women should have orgasms when trying to conceive a boy, and preferably at the same time as their partner. The ideal time to have sex for a boy is when the vaginal environment becomes alkaline, which is on the day you ovulate.
The timing of intercourse
The timing of intercourse is the most important factor according to the Shettles Method to influence the gender of your baby.You should have sex as close to ovulation as possible, to take advantage of the speed of the Y-bearing sperm.
