Does A Woman’s Acidity Play A Role In The Gender Of Her Baby?

By Sandy Dean: I recently heard from someone who wanted clarification about the role that a woman’s acidity plays in whether she has a girl or boy baby.  Basically, she said something to the affect of: “I’ve heard that if you are acidic, this helps your odds for either getting a boy or a girl baby.  Which is it?  And is this myth true at all? And if so, why?”

I believe that vaginal acidity does play a role in the gender of a woman’s baby. However, it is only one out of a few different variables.   When a woman is more acidic and less alkaline, this vaginal environment is conducive to the X sperm making it to and fertilizing the egg first, which will give you a girl baby.  The reason for this is relatively simple.  The boy sperm (the Y’s) don’t react well to that type of environment.  They are weakened by it and they are the less strong of the two sperm chromosomes to begin with.  Some will even die off as the result.  So what happens is that theoretically,  you have more surviving X’s making it to the egg than you have Y’s. This increases your odds of getting a girl.

What If I’m Acidic But I Want A Boy?: Now, the above might be good news to you if you’re trying to conceive, you already know that you are acidic, and you want the gender of you baby to be a girl.  But what if the above is also true and you want a boy? Well, there are things that you can do to make your vaginal environment more alkaline.  The most common two things that people will try is changing their diet, trying a douching regimen or both.  You can use the same testing methods that you used to determine if you were acidic to chart your progress to determine when you achieved your goal.  Many women who started out quite acidic are able to achieve an alkaline reading, although sometimes it takes experimentation as to which foods or douches work best and it does sometimes take a bit of patience.  It’s common for people to be in a big hurry to change their PH.  But often, what people don’t realize is that they are often waiting for the right timing anyway, which leads me to my next point.

The Right PH Needs To Be Combined With Other Optimal Conditions: Many people incorrectly assume that their vaginal PH is all they have to worry about.  If you only focused on this, you might be successful of increasing your odds of getting the gender that you want.  But you would have left other opportunities ignored.  If you can also obtain the right timing and the right sexual positions for the gender that you want, then you are further increasing your odds.  Remember how I said that an acidic environment isn’t exactly optimal for boy sperm? Well, neither is conceiving before ovulation.  Boy sperm don’t live as long as the girl sperm. So if you want a girl, not only should you try to be acidic, you should also try to conceive before ovulation.  This will further weed out the boy sperm.

However, if you want a boy, you’ll need to focus not only on moving away from an acidic PH, you’ll also want to make sure that you are having conception sex after ovulation.  This allows you to give those vulnerable Y’s their best chance to make it to the egg.  The sexual positions that you use can also matter a great deal.  Many people focus only on PH when trying to chose their baby’s gender.  But to cover all bases, you need to control every variable that you can if you want to raise your odds of success to the highest levels you can possibly achieve.

There can be some confusion as to how you know your PH or how to pinpoint your ovulation.  I’ve tried to address this in a couple of free websites where I take you threw step by step, depending on whether you want a girl or boy baby.
