What If You Want To Conceive Girl And Boy Twins? How Would You Do It?

I often hear from people who are looking to conceive one baby of a certain gender. In other words, they are looking to conceive a girl or boy baby for one pregnancy. Many hope to have the opposite gender for their second child. For example, couples who want to conceive a boy first might hope to get a daughter the second time.

However, there are some couples who are hoping to get the girl and the boy from ONE pregnancy because they are hoping to have twins of separate genders. In other words, they’d like to conceive a set of boy and girl twins. They figure this will give them a child of each gender while only having to deal with one pregnancy. But how to achieve this can be tricky because the methods that you use to try to conceive a girl and a boy are opposite of one another. For example, you want to conceive early for a girl and late for a boy. You want to be acidic for a girl and alkaline for a boy. So how do you accomplish these things simultaneously when you’re trying for both genders?

In short, unfortunately, you can’t possibly accomplish both goals at once. Twins are a whole different set of circumstances. There are two ways that you can get twins. The first and most common is that the woman’s body releases two eggs at ovulation and both are fertilized. These twins would be nonidentical or fraternal twins. Identical twins are more rare and they occur when a single egg is split. These twins have identical DNA and are identical in appearance.

Having twins on purpose is much more common with women who are undergoing fertility treatments with a specialist. Having twins when you aren’t under a specialist’s care is often just a matter of luck or of having a MATERNAL family history of twins. Some women are more likely to have the tendency to release more than one egg per month and this tendency runs in families. Older women, taller women, women with a higher BMI, African American, and Asian women are all more likely to produce twins, but these are all things that you have no control over.

If you absolutely want to have twins, your best bet would be to work with a fertility specialist to make this happen. If that is not an option, then having twins becomes a matter of family history or just straight up luck. That is why the best plan is probably to ask yourself which gender you want the most and then to try to achieve this. If you luck into twins, great. But if not, you will still hopefully get the gender of your choice and you can try for the other gender with your next conception. In other words, if you most want a boy, try the methods for a boy first and then if you are successful, then you would try the girl methods the next time. Unfortunately, there aren’t really any scientifically proven natural methods to make you release more than one egg or to make an egg split once it’s released. That’s why twins are relatively rare.

If you’d like to try to get one gender over another the first time around, I’ve put together a couple of websites that hopefully explain the process. If you’d like a girl baby, see http://conceive-a-girl-baby.com If you want a boy baby, see  http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com.

How Can A Man Help Conceive A Boy Baby? What About A Girl?

By: Sandy Dean: I sometimes hear from women who want to know that their boyfriend or husband needs to do to help them conceive a boy or girl baby. Occasionally, I hear from the men themselves who are trying to do everything in their power to help the woman they love get the baby gender of her choice. The truth is, there is plenty that a man can do to help conceive a boy or girl baby. But sometimes, his role is more of a supporting one, which might come as a surprise to you.

Here are a few examples.  Many people ask me what the man should be eating to achieve a certain sperm PH. Or they want to know if he should restrict himself in terms of food, exercise, or the clothing that he wears. The truth is, the PH of his sperm does not affect baby gender in the way that a woman’s PH does. Plus, men have a 50 / 50 ratio of Y to X sperm (boy and girl producing.) And this is typically true no matter what his family history is (in terms of baby gender) and no matter what makes up his diet.

There have been studies which show that even men who have had only boys or only girls still have these same ratios. I know that men can be desperate to help and are more than willing to tweak their diet or their lifestyle to help their partner get the gender that she wants. But this just isn’t necessary as it is vaginal PH (rather than sperm PH) that really matters.  With that said, there is definitely a part that a man can play, which I’ll discuss below.

Be Willing To Wait Until The Time Is Exactly Right To Have Sex: I know that it is very exciting when you are trying to conceive. When your wife or girlfriend gives you the green light that it’s time to make a baby, then it’s normal to want to get right to work and to let the fun begin. However, there is often a very good reason to wait. When you are trying to chose your baby’s gender, you often have a much smaller conception window than you would if you didn’t care about baby gender. Because if gender doesn’t matter, you can have sex anytime in the larger fertility window. But for a girl baby, you want to have sex only before ovulation. And for a boy, you want to only have sex after it. So there will only be a few ideal days for conception.  Some days will have to be passed up. Understand this and plan accordingly.

Know That You’ll Need To Invest In Some Tools And Do Some Detective Work: The biggest mistake that I see people make when they are trying to chose their baby’s gender at home is that they will assume that they know when they are ovulating without actually testing themselves. Or, they hope that they have the right PH without really knowing for sure. Guessing is the worst thing that you can do. Make sure your girlfriend or wife has a good ovulation predictor and PH tester and, more than that, make sure she uses it regularly and uses the applicable charts for both.

Understand That The Act Of Sex Many Not Be As Spontaneous As Usual: I know that it’s very romantic and exciting to think that when you have sex, you might be creating a baby. But it’s important that you decide on the sexual position that you will use ahead of time.  When you are not trying to conceive, being spontaneous with the timing of sex and the positions that you use is fine. But when you are trying to conceive, your sexual positions can matter a great deal. For a girl, you want to use shallow penetration. And for a boy, you need deep penetration. What positions that accomplish these things vary from couple to couple.

I know this might sound staged and planned (which isn’t as much fun,) but there’s a reason for this. Deep penetration helps the weaker boy producing sperm with the shorter shelf life. And shallow penetration is better for producing girl babies because it discourages those short lived Y’s (which contain boy producing sperm.)

I know that I’ve given you a lot to keep track of.  If it helps, I’ve put together a few websites that contain cheat sheets to take a lot of the guess work out of choosing your baby’s gender.   If you want a boy baby, check out http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com/

What Is The Best Time Of The Day To Conceive A Boy Baby? Is The Morning Best?

By: Sandy Dean:  I often hear from people who want for me to help them point point the best day and time to try to conceive the baby gender that they want.  They are often trying to point point the exact date and time, right down to the hour.   I recently heard from a someone who asked me, in part:  “We are trying to conceive a boy baby.  I have been told and have read that boy sperm are weaker.  And I had a friend suggest that because of this, I should try to conceive in the morning since a man is said to have a higher sperm count in the morning.  She also said that she’d heard that men have higher quality sperm after a good night’s sleep and after abstaining from sex for the hours that they are asleep.  Is all of this true?  Is having sex first thing in the morning optimal if you’re trying to conceive a boy baby?  Or does it matter at all?”  I will discuss this more in the following article.

From my research on this topic, I’ve found that the idea that sperm counts are higher in the morning is accepted by most.  Men undergoing fertility treatments or testing are often asked to give the sperm sample in the morning.  However, having a higher sperm count really does not directly affect the ratio of those same sperm.  What I mean by this is that while you may get more X and Y sperm  produced in the morning (and therefore might have a slightly better chance of getting pregnant,) the presence of more sperm chromosomes does not change the fact that you will likely have the same 50 / 50 ratio of X’s to Y’s or boy producing sperm to girl producing sperm.  Sperm count can be very important if you having fertility issues or having trouble getting pregnant, but it isn’t as important as it relates to baby gender.

As to the theory of having higher quality sperm in the morning, this is more controversial.  Most agree that abstaining from sex for 2 -3 days before trying to conceive can give you higher sperm counts and better quality sperm.  But the 6 – 8 hours of sleep that many of us get doesn’t even approach the suggested 48 -72 hour time frame.  And while you may benefit from higher quality sperm (since it’s true that Y or boy sperm tend to be more weak,) this still doesn’t address the ratio of that same sperm as I mentioned above.

And, the ratio of the sperm matters quite a lot when you are trying to choose your baby’s gender.  If you want a boy baby, your true goal is to make absolutely sure that the sperm that are trying to fertilize the egg contains much more boy producing sperm than girl producing sperm.  This alone increases your chances of getting the boy that you want.  But, you should not stop there.  Because another thing that greatly affects whether you get a boy or a girl is your vaginal PH.  An acidic one is detrimental to those Y’s that you’ve been trying so hard to encourage.  Trying to coax the Y’s into an acidic environment (where they will only weaken or wither and die) doesn’t make much sense and is counter to what you need to be doing.

So my answer to this question would be that it’s perfectly fine to have sex in the morning in an attempt to conceive a boy as long as you have also checked your PH and you know that it is alkaline rather than acidic.  In my view, you are better off having sex in the evening with an alkaline PH than having sex in the morning with an acidic one.  (Granted, most people aren’t able to drastically change their PH levels from morning to night.)

The final point I’d like to make is this.  When we discuss timing regarding conceiving a boy or a girl, we aren’t talking about the time of day.  We are talking about the time of the month – as it relates to your ovulation and fertility cycle. You want to conceive after ovulation happens because this ensures the health and vitality of those weaker boy sperm that we’ve been talking about.  To me, the timing as it relates to ovulation is much more important than timing is it relates to what the clock says first thing in the morning.   So having sex in the morning for a boy baby is fine.  But having sex in the morning with an alkaline PH and after ovulation has occurred is much better.

I know that this can be confusing.  If you’d like to read more about this process and see it explained step by step, check out http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com/ (for a boy baby) or http://conceive-a-girl-baby.com/ (for a girl baby)


Potassium and Y Sperm

I sometimes hear from women who have read that bananas and high levels of potassium in their diet might increase their Y sperm and give them better odds of getting a boy baby. The idea behind this is that foods that are high in potassium would make the vaginal PH more alkaline, which favors a boy baby. People who want boys will often try to increase their intake of bananas or other high potassium food. Some will resort to taking dietary supplements.

There is a study out of the University of Oxford which indicated that women who had a diet high in calories AND who ate more bananas had a slightly better chance of having sons – (56% as opposed to the 50% that happens in nature.) This is a very slight statistical difference, but it is a difference just the same. Specifically, the women who were more likely to have sons ate breakfast, included bananas in their diet, and took in more calories than the other women. The mothers who had daughters were more likely to skip breakfast. Now, this was a very small study. There were only 740 women in the study, so it’s probably not a great idea to just eat tons of bananas because of one small study. Having really high potatassium can cause heart palpitations, so overdoing it on any one food is never a great idea, especially if you want to get pregnant.

I’d advise that if you want to try bumping up your calorie intake, eating bananas, and embracing breakfast, test your PH before the process so that you can see if this is having the desired affect on your PH. You should see it becoming decidedly more alkaline. Some women will douche with specific formulas right before intercourse if they can’t get the PH that they are looking for, but others are able to hit the target with diet alone.

Finally PH is just one piece of the puzzle. Timing is also important since the Y or male sperm are short lived. You would not want to conceive before ovulation because many Y sperm do not live long enough to wait for the egg. Also, you want to use optimal sexual positions that will put the sperm close to the cervix to help the vulnerable Y sperm have less distance before reaching their destination.

So yes, potassium, breakfast, and calories have shown an extremely slight rise in the likelihood of getting a boy baby. But the advantage is slight, so you want to be very sensible about this (while discussing any concerns of health issues with your doctor.) You never want to overdo it on a certain food. And you want to combine this optimization with using the right timing and positioning. If you don’t like bananas or just don’t want to increase your potassium, there are other foods that can affect PH and give an alkalizing affect as well.

If you’re curious about optimizing PH, timing, and sexual positions, I’ve put together some free websites to outline the steps you’d want to take. If you’d like a girl baby, see http://conceive-a-girl-baby.com If you want a boy baby, see  http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com.

Is It True That Men That Can Produce Baby Girls Have Stronger Genes Than Those Who Produce Baby Boys?

By: Sandy Dean: Most people know that in terms of your baby’s gender, it is ultimately the man’s sperm chromosomes that determine if you have a boy or girl baby. Because if one of his Y sperm fertilizes the woman’s egg, then the result is a boy baby. If one of his X sperm chromosomes fertilize the woman’s egg, then the couple will have a girl baby.

However, this doesn’t tell you the whole story. Even though men have equal numbers of X and Y sperm, there are things that people attempt to do in order to get the girl or boy baby of their choice. And these attempts are usually based on some characteristics that we know about those different sperm chromosomes. For example, we know that the boy sperm are faster but weaker. They will make it to the egg more quickly. But they will die off days or hours earlier than girl sperm. Although the X or girl producing sperm are more slow, it takes them longer to weaken or die off. So, people often assume that the girl sperm “are stronger.”

This sometimes makes people wonder if men who produce girl babies have “stronger” or “better” genes. I might hear someone say: “I am in love with a man who I want to marry. I am hoping that we will marry within a year. Once that is done, I would like to have a family with this man. He has two sons from a previous marriage. This worries me because I have heard that men who produce girl babies have good genes while men who produce boys do not. I love this man, but it’s important to me that my future children are healthy and have good genes. If he can’t produce girl genes, then I might have second thoughts.”

This actually isn’t an uncommon thought process. People sometimes comment to me that they think that men who seem to produce more girl sperm or who have daughters are more virile and strong. Consider this. Men produce the same number of boy and girl sperm, regardless of the gender of baby that they have already produced. So if the this thinking were true (that men who have daughters have good genes) then what happens to the boy sperm that this man also has?  Because he does have both.  Men do not have either girl producing or boy producing sperm. They have both. And they have them in equal numbers.

Not only this, but there are other factors (besides the man’s sperm) that help determine whether a couple has a girl or boy baby. The mothers PH, as well as timing and the sexual positions used can also influence baby gender. In other words, this woman’s boyfriend could have two daughters because his ex wife was always acidic during conception. There are a number of combinations that can contribute to having a boy or girl baby. And the woman or mother can influence this also. It is not always the man.

So to answer the concern, because men have equal amounts of girl and boy producing sperm and because the mother can influence baby gender also, there is no validity whatsoever to the assumption that men who produce daughters have good genes or that men who produce son’s have bad ones.

Does Your Sperm Count Have To Be High To Have A Boy Baby?

By: Sandy Dean: I sometimes hear from couples who want to have a boy baby or a son. However, some are afraid that one of them doesn’t have what it takes in order to make this happen. As far as the man or father to be is concerned, some worry that their sperm count isn’t high enough or isn’t optimal.

I might hear a comment like: “I am pretty sure that my husband has a low sperm count. I believe this for a couple of reasons. First of all, we are having some trouble getting pregnant. We have been trying for eight months and I am still not pregnant. Second, his brother and wife had to do fertility treatments in order to become pregnant because his brother had low sperm count. So I am afraid that this condition has run in my husband’s family and now his sperm count is low. We are wanting a boy baby. But I have read that a high sperm count makes this more likely and that a low sperm count makes girls more likely. Is this true? And, if so, what can I do about it?”

Well before I get to the low / high sperm count issue, I do want to stress that it didn’t appear to be certain that this was going to be an issue. She was assuming that her husband had the same condition as his brother, but her husband had not been tested. So this was only an assumption that could have been wrong. And, eight months is not an alarmingly long time not to become pregnant. Most specialists don’t even encourage you to get a check up until you have been trying for at least a year or more without success.

With all of this said, for the sake of argument, let’s say that she was right and that her husband indeed had low sperm count. I honestly didn’t think that this would make much of a difference in terms of baby gender. But I did research this to be sure. And although I could find references to studies which supposedly indicated a five percent bias toward boy babies for men with higher sperm counts, I didn’t find the studies themselves.

Supposing that the studies were true, a five percent bias is not all that statistically significant. Typically, the odds for males and females are equal because men produce equal amounts of boy and girl producing sperm. So, even assuming that this is true, it’s taking the odds from 50 / 50 to 55 / 45. Sure, the odds are slightly better, but in this scenario, plenty of daughters would be born to men with high sperm count and plenty of sons would be born to men with low sperm count.

Not only this, but there are so many other variables that can dramatically influence baby gender. I believe that reasoning behind this “high sperm count theory” is that because boy sperm are faster, if you have then in higher numbers, the odds are better that they will win the race to the egg. But frankly, if you have a higher sperm count, you are still going to have the same ratio of X to Y (or girl producing to boy producing sperm.) So if the amount of boy sperm were to increase because of a high sperm count. So would the girl sperm. To me, it would almost cancel each other out.

Granted, having a high sperm count gives you a better chance of becoming pregnant. You have more sperm which can potentially fertilize the egg, so you have more of a chance of success. But, this would be true no matter which gender you want.

In my opinion, if you want a boy, you are better off making sure that the woman is alkaline, making sure that you are having sex after ovulation, and using deep penetration when you have sex. Because I believe that the combination of these three variables could potentially raise your odds for a boy baby much higher than 55%. And frankly, these variables are much easier to manipulate and control whereas sperm count is not.

If I Want A Boy Baby, Should I Have Sex More Than Once Per Day? Is There Any Benefit To This?

By: Sandy Dean:  It’s very common for people who have decided that they’d like to conceive to want to get started right away.  This is understandable.  The decision that it is time to have a child is an exciting and important one.  And no one wants the process of conception to take very long.  Many people fantasize about the entire process only taking a few months.  No one wants to have to seek out the help of a fertility specialist or to wait too long to start a family.

To that end, it makes sense that couples want to maximize their efforts. Many think that it’s probably a good idea to have sex as many times as possible while the woman is fertile and can become pregnant.  So some couples consider having sex not only every day, but multiple times per day – at least while the woman is ovulating.

Someone might say: “my husband and I have started thinking about conceiving our first child and we would like for it to be a boy.  I’ve heard that it is harder to have a boy than a girl and therefore it may take many more tries to get pregnant.  I want it to happen right away.  I know that this is silly, but I don’t want to wait.  Ideally, I’d like for it to happen the first month.  I’m considering having sex every morning and night about two weeks after my period.  However, one of my friends says that you should abstain instead.  Is there any benefit to having sex multiple times?  It seems to me that every time we have sex, we have more chances to become pregnant.”

I’m not a doctor or specialist.  My answer is based on my research and my own process of conceiving.  It is thought that if your husband is a relatively young, healthy male and does not have any known issues with a low sperm count or low quality sperm, then there is no problem with having sex as often as you like.

However, if a man has an issue with low quality sperm or a low sperm count, than it is a better idea to let a couple of days pass in order to “built up” the sperm count.  If you don’t know if your husband falls into this category, many couples will use the strategy of assuming there isn’t a problem – unless they try to conceive for 6 – 12 months with no success.  Otherwise, if your husband is healthy and relatively young, there is no reason not to assume that he has normal sperm – unless other indicators pop up.

For a boy, your odds of success are increased if you have sex AFTER conception.  So having sex multiple times per day before you get a positive ovulation test would actually hurt your chances of having a boy.  It might help your chances of becoming pregnant, but it would also give you the window that would encourage a girl baby.  If you really want a boy, a good plan is to wait until you’re sure that the woman is ovulating (by a positive ovulation test and not just estimating or picking an arbitrary number after your menstrual period.) Once that occurs, there’s no issue with having sex multiple times.  And yes, it would increase the number of sperm and thus the number of chances for pregnancy. (By the way, most people think it’s easier to have a boy baby because you have that positive ovulation test to give you the green light that the time is right.)

However, once your ovulation window has closed, there is no benefit to continuing on.  You can’t become pregnant once your egg is no longer available for fertilization.  Of course, there are reasons to have sex other than conception.  But during your ovulation window, it makes sense to take advantage of your opportunities.  But if you want one gender over another, you have to be more picky with your timing.

Plus, a boy conception requires an alkaline PH and it helps to use deeper penetration to get closer to the cervix.  For step by step tips for having a boy, check out  http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com

Does Sex Destroy The Ovulation Egg?

I sometimes hear from people who know that a woman’s egg (which is released during her ovulation window) is somewhat fragile.  Most people realize that it has a short life span, but not everyone realizes what contributes to it eventually dying off.  I’ve had people ask me if the sperm itself kills the egg.  Someone might say,”my husband and I would like to become pregnant, but we have been trying for 8 months with no luck. I’m starting to think that my body kills off my husband’s sperm.  Sometimes when we have sex, I have an itching sensation.  Is this possible?  Does the act of sex break down the egg and kill it off?”

I am not a doctor, but according to my research, most of the time, it does not.  For most women, time is the greatest enemy of the egg.  Once it is released, it only has days in which to live before it begins to weaken and then die off. If it is not fertilized by sperm, this die off becomes a menstrual period and then you have to wait for your next ovulation period in order to try to become pregnant again.  So for most women, the sperm has the ability to fertilize the waiting egg, not to kill it off.

However, there are rare exceptions.  Some women have a sperm allergy where they are allergic to the proteins in sperm.  So when the couple has sex, the woman might actually get hives or have itching / pain.  This condition can be painful, but assuming that the couple can have sex, this condition does not affect fertility.  However, there is another condition in which the woman has antibodies to sperm.  Instead of the antibodies killing the egg, however, they kill or damage the sperm, which can make it difficult for the couple to become pregnant.  This condition is called immunologic infertility.  It is a relatively rare condition.

Your doctor can test you for either one of these conditions and can treat accordingly if you have one. However, both conditions are pretty rare, with the sperm allergy being more common of the two.  Most gynecologists recommend getting a check up if you’re not able to conceive after a year of trying because it can take some months to get your timing right.  Not every attempt at conception results in a pregnancy.  To increase your chances, you will want to test your ovulation (using predictors like these on Ebay) and then have sex after you get a positive reading (assuming that you will be happy with either gender.)  This ensures that you are depositing sperm when the egg is fresh and new and will give you the best chance of conceiving.  If you are just guessing as to your ovulation time, you might be surprised at your test results.  Some women ovulate much sooner or later than they assumed.  So if you are missing that window, it will not be very easy to get pregnant since the egg might be early or late and the sperm is just missing it each time.  But to answer the original question, most of the time, sex does not harm the egg.  But there are some rare cases where the woman will have a sperm allergy or have antibodies to sperm.  If this is suspected, your doctor can test for it.

I’ve Had Four Baby Girls. Does This Mean That I Can’t Have A Boy?

By: Sandy Dean: I sometimes hear from people who have given birth to the same gender of baby over and over again. As a result, they do not believe that they are able to have anything other than the gender that they have already have. Because many have experienced say, multiple girl babies or multiple boys, they’d like to try for what they don’t have but they worry that this might not be possible.

For example, I could hear from a woman who says: “believe it or not, I already have four daughters. I conceived my first child (a girl) while I was still in high school. I got married in my twenties and had two girls with my first husband. And I have had one additional daughter with my current husband. Now, I want to conceive again. Things are great in my life and I feel like i just have one more baby in me. This time, I would like to have a boy, but I worry that because I’ve already have four girls, it’s not possible for me to have boys. I wouldn’t worry as much if all four of my girls had been conceived with the same man, but this just isn’t the case. So now I’m worried that the problem is me and that I can’t have a boy. Is this true? And isn’t it supposed to be the man who controls the baby’s gender? What are the chances that all three of these men could only produce girls?”

Frankly, I don’t ever believe that getting the gender of your choice is impossible. There are definitely easy and very inexpensive (and in some cases free) things that you can do at home to try to greatly improve your chances. But first, let’s talk about what determines your baby’s gender. To make a baby, you have the father’s sperm chromosomes and the mother’s egg. Off all of the sperm that a man contributes, only one is going to make it the egg and result in a pregnancy (except in the case of twins or multiples.)

Men produce two types of sperm chromosomes in roughly equal numbers. People often think that some men only produce boy producing sperm chromosomes or female producing sperm chromosomes but studies have shown that this isn’t true. Not only do men produce both, but they produce them in roughly the same numbers. If an X sperm chromosome fertilizes the egg, you get a girl. If it’s a Y, you get a boy.  In most cases, the odds are about 50 / 50 for each.

So, in this case, why was it that three different men had produced X chromosomes that resulted in four pregnancies with girl babies. Well, it could have just been sort of a fluke. Sure, it’s a little against the odds, but it happens. It would be like flipping a coin and having it land on heads instead of tales four times in a row. You wouldn’t expect this, but it could happen.

Or, there might be something else at play here. Sometimes, the mother’s PH, timing, or sexual positions used can make a girl or boy baby more likely. For example, women who are acidic have a better chance of getting girl babies since this weakens those boy or Y sperm. That’s usually the first suspicion when you see a woman who continues to have girls – that she is very acidic and therefore there are less boy sperm that survive long enough to even make it to the egg.

This is unfortunate, but you can attempt to address it. You can change your diet or use douches to make your PH more alkaline. And you can make sure that you wait until after ovulation to attempt to conceive. And when you do make the attempt and have intercourse, you want to use deep penetration. (These things help you to get a boy baby.)

That’s why my answer to the original question is that I don’t think it’s impossible to get a boy. I think it might be very helpful to test your PH and your ovulation and then to respond according to what you find.  (It’s certainly possible to have acidity with four girls. And this is something you can address.)  Sometimes, getting the gender of your choice is all about making sure you make the most of every variable.

If I Have A Period Twice In One Month, Does My Ovulation Schedule Change? What Does This Mean If I’m Trying To Conceive A Boy Or Girl?

By: Sandy Dean: Many women use their menstrual periods to help them determine when ovulation is likely to be on its way. Menstruation or being on your period is something that is hard to ignore, so it makes sense that this is the time that many women consider to be the beginning of their fertility cycle. And, when your period is regular, this can make sense as long as you follow up with an ovulation predictor to confirm what you already suspect. But what happens when your cycle isn’t regular? What happens when you skip a period or have more than one a month? Does this mean you’re ovulating twice or not at all?

I recently heard from someone who said: “my menstrual periods have always been very erratic. There have been times when I would go for a couple of months and not have a period at all. And then other times, I’ve had a couple of periods in a month’s time that occurred only a couple of weeks apart. Am I ovulating during the months when I’m having periods and not ovulating when I’m not having one?” I’m trying to conceive a boy baby and I know that sexual intercourse needs to happen after ovulation but with my erratic menstruation schedule, I am just not sure how to proceed.”

It’s very difficult to answer these questions without knowing more. Some women ovulate in the absence of menstrual periods. And some don’t.  Also, not all women who have regular periods are also regularly ovulating. The only definitive way to tell for sure is to see your doctor for testing (which is preferable)  or to test yourself with an ovulation predictor. These predictors pick up surges in your hormones which confirm ovulation. Sometimes, when I explain this to women who don’t have periods or who have multiple periods, they are still confused as to when to start testing. They will often ask me if they should wait until they have their next period to begin.

In my opinion, waiting truly isn’t necessary. People use their period as a starting point because it makes things easier. However, there is no need to wait when your cycle is so irregular. You could just as easily chose a day and test until you get a positive reading to indicate that ovulation has either happened or is getting ready to happen. The idea is that you continue to test until you get a positive. For some women, this may take a while especially if they don’t ovulate on a regular schedule. And others might be lucky and find that their positive reading comes quite quickly. But testing for hormones is a much more reliable way to tell if you are ovulating then trying to use your period as a starting point and then to just guess. Because not all women ovulate mid way through their cycle and some women ovulate in the absence of periods or even when they have excess periods.

So to answer the question posed, your ovulation schedule may or may not change if you have two periods in one month. The answer really depends on the reason you’re experiencing the two monthly periods and why you are have been ovulating in a regular or irregular pattern in the first place. Many people worry that irregular ovulation means you either can’t get pregnant or that you can’t get pregnant with the gender of your choice. This isn’t accurate. It may take longer since you may have less opportunities for conception, but any time you ovulate, you can become pregnant. And any time you ovulate at the right time and then schedule your attempts at conception around that time, you can influence your baby’s gender.

I know that I’ve given you a lot to think about and that sorting it out can be a little difficult.  If you’d like to read more about this process and see it explained step by step, check out http://conceive-a-boy-baby.com/ (for a boy baby) or http://conceive-a-girl-baby.com/ (for a girl baby)
