By: Sandy Dean: People sometimes ask me which gender is harder to conceive. Often, the people who are trying for girl babies think that their goal is more difficult because they have to plan well in advance. On the other hand, the people who are trying to conceive boy babies will tell you that they have the harder task because the foods needed to make their body alkaline are more specialized and aren’t naturally or already included in most people’s diet. I suppose both have valid points, but honestly with the right tools, conceiving either gender isn’t particularly difficult. In the following article, I’ll tell you the challenges to conceiving a boy or a girl and will also describe how to overcome them.
What’s Hard Or Difficult About Conceiving A Girl Baby: If there are any challenges to conceiving a girl, it’s this. When you want a girl baby, you need to conceive early in order to discourage the Y or boy sperm that only lives for a few days. When most people attempt to conceive, they will try to guess or test their ovulation day. Usually a positive result means that ovulation has happened (or at least the hormones that indicate ovulation are now present.) However, by the time you get this positive reading, sexual intercourse would be more appropriate for a boy baby because late timing helps the short lived boy sperm. But when you want a girl, you’ll want to have sex a couple of days before you get this traditional positive.
The Way Around These Challenges: Planning so far ahead of time can be a little tricky, but there are many good saliva predictors that will show that your hormones are rising days before ovulation actually occurs. So while you may need better tools or you may need to plan more carefully, I wouldn’t necessarily call this process hard or difficult.
The Challenges In Conceiving A Boy Baby: As I just described above, the one advantage you have when you’re trying to conceive a boy is that you can conceive after you get those traditional positives that tell you ovulation has already taken place.
Instead of timing though, your challenge in conceiving a boy baby will often be in becoming more alkaline. Why is this important? Because an acidic environment is hostile to those boy producing sperm. And many of the processed meat and dairy based foods in today’s modern diet are acidic. So when you want a boy, unless you already have more of a plant based diet, you will likely need to make more dramatic changes to the foods that you eat than you might have if you were trying for a girl.
The Way Around This: As with the saliva protectors that allowed you to get around early planning described above, there are ways to get around the challenges of becoming more alkaline. In addition to your diet, douching can help change your PH and your acidity. So, if you are having trouble with your diet and are not getting the results that you want, know that you can douche in addition to your diet. Douching can often help compensate for not being as compliant as you would like with your foods and meals.
So, to answer the question posed, conceiving boys and girls both pose small challenges, but I wouldn’t call either process hard, especially with the right tools. Just remember that there are always three things to consider: timing, PH, and the distance to the cervix. And the way you approach these vary depending on which gender you want.
