Can Girl Sperm Live In An Alkaline Environment? Why It’s Not Ideal

By: Sandy Dean: I sometimes hear from people who have actually tested their vaginal PH and have determined that they are alkaline. This would be ideal when you want a boy baby, but what about if you want a girl? Someone might say: “I have decided that it’s time for me to have my first child. I would really like a girl. I have done some research and read that ideally, you should be acidic when you want a girl. Well, I tested myself and I am alkaline. Can girl sperm survive in this? Or is there nothing that I can do but resign myself for a boy?”

Well, girl sperm are going to fare much better in an alkaline environment than boy sperm are going to fare in an acidic environment. Girl sperm are the more stronger of the two, which is why boy sperm become weak and falter in an acidic environment. And that why it is suggested that you have an acidic environment when you want a girl. The thinking is that the boy sperm will be weeded out, leaving less of them to compete with the more plentiful girl sperm. Because think about it. If there are more girl sperm than boy sperm present, that means that the girls would have a better chance, thereby increasing the odds.

However, when you have X or girl sperm in an alkaline environment, they do survive, but so do the boy sperm. And, the Y or boy sperm are faster. So, while the numbers may be equal, the speed is not. Now, you may still get a girl in this scenario because there would still be plenty. But, because the Y’s can survive here too (and use their speed) it does not offer you the best odds when you want a girl. To me (and this is only my opinion,) if you really want to optimize the odds or getting a girl, then you are better off turning your attention to changing your alkaline environment to an acidic one.

Yes, this may take a little time and you may have to tweak your diet or your regimen, but isn’t it worth that to know that this is giving you the best chance of having success? Because although X’s survive in an alkaline environment just fine, you’re setting it up so that they are having to compete with a large number of Y’s. But if you have an acidic environment, you weed out some of these Y’s and you take advantage of the mismatch in numbers even if you can not take advantage of the numbers in speed. If you’d like step by step instructions of what to do for each gender and when, I’ve tried to make it easy to understand. I’ve put together a few websites that explain it more directly.
