The late Dr. Landrum Shettles developed a baby gender prediction method that he felt was the best supported by scientific evidence. He wrote a million copy best selling book explaining his methods called How To Choose The Sex Of Your Baby. Dr Shettles claims a 75%-90% success rate using his simple, three step, natural, in home methods, and many thousands of couples have enjoyed an even higher (up to 98%) success rate using these very same methods to help them predict the gender of their next baby.

The Shettles method is based on the fact that it’s the man’s sperm that determines whether the baby you conceive is a girl or a boy. This is because the woman’s egg carries only the (xy) or (girl) chromosome, and the man’s sperm comes in two varieties, one carrying the (xx) or girl sperm (which results in a girl baby) and the (xy) or boy sperm (that results in a boy baby.) Dr Shettles also realized that the girl sperm was physically larger, stronger (longer lived), and a slower swimmer (slower to reach the egg.) The boy sperm conversely is the smaller, more fragile (dies off quicker), and is a much faster swimmer of the two (can win the race to fertilize the egg most of the time.)

Dr Shettles also realized that timing of conceptual intercourse, and the depth of penetration during this intercourse could help to determine if the resulting baby was a boy or girl. The mother-to-be also needs to track her day of ovulation precisely, in order to time conceptual intercourse precisely as well. Here are Dr Shettles three easy at home baby gender selection steps:

1. If a baby boy is desired abstain from sex until the day before ovulation, and abstain again the second day after ovulation. Also when trying to conceive a boy sexual positions that allow deep penetration are best (“doggie style” or missionary position with the woman’s legs extended up towards her head.) Why is this? Because of the differences in the two sperm. This timing, and deep penetration allows the fast swimming boy sperm to win the race to the fresh waiting egg, resulting in the boy baby you want.

2. If a baby girl is desired, the couple should have sex practicing only shallow penetration, and abstain from sex for a couple of days before ovulation and until a couple of days after ovulation. Here again this gives the short lived boy sperm to much time and distance to survive and allows the slow but longer lived girl sperm a time and distance advantage, and assures (hopefully) you will conceive a baby girl.

3. Dr Shettles determined that vaginal acidity also plays a role in which sperm succeeds in fertilizing the egg. He found that a lower ph (higher acidity) favored the girl sperm (it kills off the boy sperm) and a higher ph (lower acidity) allowed for the survival of the boy sperm, and gives them the chance to outdistance their female counterparts and again win the race and fertilize the egg resulting in a baby boy.

Although these concepts are pretty simple, the timing can be critical, so make sure you understand the steps fully. The more diligent you are in implementing these simple, all natural, at home steps, the higher the probability of your dream of choosing the gender of your next baby will come true! The accuracy of this gender predictor is only as good as you are at implementing these steps into a conceptual plan you can follow, and if you want to take any “guess work” out of it, drop by my site to pick up one of the avaliable eBooks on the subject…you’ll be glad you did!

So if you are serious about choosing the gender of your next baby to complete your family, why not give Dr Shettles methods a try, even if you fail you will still have that beautiful little baby girl or boy to love and cherish!
