    How To Have A Baby Boy?
    shona2412 posted:
    There are many different factors that determine what gender your baby will be. Some of these factors you have control over while other factors you don't have any control over. The factors you can control for how to have a baby boy are what you eat, when you have sexual intercourse, and how you have sexual intercourse.

    Studies have shown that what the woman eats can influence whether her eggs attract male or female sperm. If a woman starts a certain diet at least six weeks before conceiving a baby she can help influence whether she conceives a boy or a girl. So the way how you can have a baby boy is to eat foods from the earth that will help your eggs attract male sperm.

    Another way for how to have a baby boy is to time when sexual intercourse occurs. The sperm that cause a baby boy to be conceived (the male sperm) are faster than female sperm but they're also more fragile. So knowing this, a couple wishing to have a baby boy should plan when they have intercourse accordingly. The timing is based on when ovulation occurs. Sometimes it's difficult to know when ovulation occurs but there are many ways to determine it.

    The final way you can influence the gender of the child you conceive is to use an appropriate position to have sex. How to have a baby boy is to use a sexual position that will give the male sperm the best chance of surviving and fertilizing the egg. This means that you want to use positions that will allow you to deposit the sperm as deeply into the cervix as possible.

    If you wish to have a baby boy there are plenty of ways how to have a baby boy by changing your choices in life. You can control certain factors that ultimately influence if you have a boy or a girl. Three factors that you can influence are what you eat, when you have intercourse, and what positions you use to have intercourse.
