Is There Any Way To Tell If My PH Is Naturally Acidic Or Alkaline Before Conceiving If I Don’t Have A Way To Test? Can You Go By Smell Or Appearance Or Secretions?

By: Sandy Dean:  If you are researching conceiving the gender of your choice, you probably are starting to realize that your vaginal PH has a lot to do with your ability to be successful in choosing your baby’s gender.  If your vaginal PH is alkaline, you’re more likely to have a boy.  If it is acidic, you are more likely to have a girl.  Some women tend to stay in one range over the course of their lifetime.  Others find that even small variables make their PH swing wildly.  Some women are lucky enough to be in the right general range for their desired gender.  For example, someone who wants a girl may already be quite acidic and so then all she would need to do would be to test herself right before she conceives to make sure her PH is still correct. If so,  she could then turn her attention to using the correct timing and to the correct sexual positions.  But how do you know if you are in the right range and if not, how far out of range you are?

I sometimes have people ask me if you can tell if you are acidic or alkaline by smell or by the texture of secretions.  For example, someone might say: “I want a boy baby.  And I know that I need to be alkaline for this to happen.  I don’t have a PH tester.  And I know that I can’t know my exact PH without one, but is there anyway to know if I’m just generally alkaline?  I’ve heard that if you are acidic, you will have a lot of vaginal infections and you’ll have grey discharge or notice a fishy smell.  Is this true?  I do have a lot of infections, but there isn’t always a strong smell.”

Your vaginal secretions change during your ovulation cycle.  The mucus changes in texture in anticipation of ovulation in order to make it easier for the sperm to fertilize the egg.  So, while I’m not a doctor, I think that gauging your PH based on these secretions isn’t a great idea as they are constantly changing anyway.  While bad bacteria can thrive in an elevated PH, this is indication of an infection and not what your PH might be when you normally are not infected.   Not only that, but your PH can change because of your diet, because you have sex (female orgasm can change PH significantly) and for other reasons.  That’s why women who are trying to choose their baby’s gender are encouraged to check their PH very often and then make tweaks as necessary.

Honestly, PH testers are very inexpensive.  While you’re at it, check out the reusable ovulation predictors that make your timing easier.  (Here’s an example of some on Ebay.) It’s so important to know your PH while you are actively trying to conceive.  And since it can change, it’s important to continue to test regularly.  Unfortunately, I don’t know of a reliable way to know your PH other than to quickly, easily, and cheaply test yourself.  Once you know your number, there are some good resources to help you determine the optimal range for a boy baby.  I’ve listed some of the resources on some free blogs.   If you want a boy baby, see  http://conceive-a-boy-baby.comIf you want a girl, see
