Today many couples can decide to choose the gender of their baby. Many cultures have ways to choose baby gender that are based on the female ovulation cycle. These methods have been around for hundreds of years with varying degrees of success. Some parents are absolutely convinced that they conceived a baby boy by following certain techniques, changing their diet, using various “positions” in the bedroom or even drinking particular concoctions. Although most doctors and fertility experts claim that we can’t influence whether we have a girl or boy, there’s certainly a lot of compelling anecdotal evidence out there to the contrary.
Determining when you ovulate is vital when you are learning how to conceive a boy. According to Shettles method it recommends to have sex as early as 24 hours before ovulation to no more than 12 hours past ovulation in order to increase your chances of conceiving a boy.

So what are the basic things to do? First is that you enter in the first and last day of your menstrual cycle a few months prior to when you actually want to conceive, it will tell you the length of your cycle. Then you are directed to conceive approximately two weeks prior to the start of your next period, or mid-way through your cycle. Since women typical menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days, this is somewhere around day 14. Though the time before you ovulate may vary every month, for most women the time after ovulation (your luteal phase) is the same length from month to month. But as we know not all women has a 28 day cycle and sometimes, women will ovulate earlier or later in their cycles, so not every month is exactly the same for every woman.
For those mothers who want to conceive boy it’s important to know exactly when you ovulate so that you aren’t too early (if you are, the odds are better for a girl.) Because in the event that you will conceive well before the egg is ready, the boy sperm will deteriorate, weaken, and die off before conception can even happen. But if you conceive on the day of or just after ovulation male baby may be granted.
Ovulation calculators work best for women who have very regular cycles. They’re not helpful for women with very short (less than 21 days), very long (more than 35 days), or very irregular cycles. Ovulation calculators can be helpful in ascertaining approximately when you will ovulate. But for those who isn’t knowledgeable about their cycle or whose cycle is irregular, they aren’t proof. The accuracy of an ovulation calculator depends on how regular your menstrual cycles are and whether you ovulate at the expected time.
