New Theory to Sway for a Girl
January 6, 2013 at 2:48 PM

I just read on that there is theory to sway for a girl where you BD everyday from when AF ends until after O.  The theory is that the frequent release of sperm ends up favoring girls and I assume also that the number of girl sperm left when O occurs will be more that the number of boy sperm that will die off.

What do you guys think of this?

    Complete opposite for me! dh and I were frequent daily sometimes multiple times a day and had a boy. We then had 2 girls and had infrequent sex (my libedo really dropped after having our first baby lol)

    When we tried for our boys we had sex everyday multiple Idk about that theory...we weren't swaying for a certain gender just trying to get pregnant.

    I had sex everyday leading up to ovulation and skipped ovulation day and did the 12+O this time and got my girl. With my oldest son, I had sex once on ovulation and with my 2nd son, we did the deed every other day. I also took some supplements and used sylk lubricant this time to help sway for a girl.

    I have new to the group and I have been reading up on both for years now because it intrigues me. But from my understanding frequent release favors boys because the y sperm swim faster and the die off faster. But the x sperm live longer and move at a slower more steady rate. Slow an dsteady wins the race, if you keep putting semen in there that  move fast then it won't happen. I hope that makes sense. If not let me know and I will try to find the links again

    Yep, I knew that and we did frequent release for our first attempt which was this past Sun. For a girl, you either want frequent release where you BD every day for at least 7 days, OR abstain and DH/SO has NO release for 7-14 days. Both cause low sperm count, which favors girls. talks all about it. They say abstaining has a higher success rate, but neither of us are willing to go days without sex so we chose FR. I was actually able to put a small drop of DH's sample under our microscope and could see his sperm count was nice and low.
