If My Period Changes Dates From Month To Month Does This Mean I Can’t Become Pregnant With The Gender Of My Choice

By: Sandy Dean:  Most women who are either trying to become pregnant or trying to avoid a pregnancy realize that the timing of their period becomes very important.  Because the menstrual period is at least indicative that ovulation has already occurred for the month – so you can plan accordingly.  After all, in the vast majority of the cases, a period occurs because no pregnancy has taken place for that month.  And your ovulation and menstrual cycle start all over again.  (I say “the vast majority” of the cases because some women actually have continued to have periods even while they were pregnant.  It is relatively rare.  But it does happen.  So you can’t say with one hundred percent certainty that you are not pregnant once you get your period, but for most women, this is the case.)

Whether a woman is trying to avoid or achieve pregnancy, she will often use her period to gauge when she might need to avoid or attempt sex (and therefore a pregnancy.)  But what happens when your period is hard to gauge?  What if you are trying to become pregnant and your period happens at various times throughout the month?  For example, someone might ask: “are you even fertile if you have periods at different times from month to month and when the date is always changing?  I want to become pregnant, but last month, my period came on the 20th and this month it wasn’t until the 28th.  So I have no idea when I can become pregnant.  This would be hard enough if I didn’t care about gender.  But I do.  I want a girl and I have heard people say that this is going to be even harder to achieve? Can you become pregnant when you are always having your period on different dates? Can you get the gender that you want?”

The Timing Can Work If You Are Careful: The answer is yes on both counts, and I will explain why.  You don’t need periods to happen in the same way every single time to become pregnant.  Many women have cycles that vary from month to month.  And your menstrual cycle (your period) and your fertility cycle (where you ovulate) are two different things.  Ovulation occurs first when the egg is ready to be fertilized.  If there is no sperm present to fertilize the egg and no pregnancy occurs, then your period starts.  These two parts of your cycle can both vary as to when they occur.  Certain factors can delay or affect them.  And some women just have cycles that vary naturally.

However, this doesn’t mean that both processes aren’t happening normally even if their timing might be a little different.  Now, determining when they might occur can be very important when you are trying to become pregnant.  Because you want to have sex AROUND the time of ovulation.  The egg only lives for a short while.  So if you have sex too early before the egg is released then you won’t be able to become pregnant.  If you wait too late after the egg has been released, then the egg won’t be viable anymore.  That’s why timing is so important.

Knowing EXACTLY When The Timeframe Is Optimal: The good news is that you don’t have to guess.  Ovulation predictor kits mean that you can know when this has occurred so that you can have sex at the appropriate time (and when pregnancy and conception are most likely to occur.)  In terms of baby gender, this is a bit more tricky.  Because the timing needs more precision in this case.  For a boy, you want to have sex after ovulation.  This isn’t that difficult because no matter when your period occurs, the ovulation kit can tell you exactly when you are about to ovulate.  You know ovulation is very close so if you have sex a short time later, then you are a little more likely to get a boy.  A girl conception is a bit harder because by the time you get a positive reading in most kits, you’re at the timing for a boy.  That’s why the saliva predictor (as opposed to the urine) kits are better for couples who want a girl.  They are more sensitive and give you a more generous lead time, which is more conducive to a girl baby.

But no, having your period at different times of the month doesn’t mean that you can’t become pregnant.  You likely can, at least in my opinion.  You may just have to monitor with a kit, but this is very easy to do.  And if you want a certain gender, you’ll have to monitor a little more closely and use other methods.

Now, timing isn’t the only variable that matters.  If you’re trying to control your baby’s gender, timing is very important, but you also need to consider PH and the sexual positions used.  I have set up free websites to explain each of these variables in ways that I hope are easy to understand.  I’ve put together a couple of cheat sheets to try to make it easy.
