The Egg carries an X chromosome. A sperm may carry either an X or a Y chromosome.
So the sperm is the determining factor in the sex of your baby.
Dr. Shettles found that the male sperm could swim much faster than the female sperm but it would tire out quicker. The male producing sperm also die off quicker.

The girl sperm is tougher and bigger but swims at a slower pace. They also survive the longest.
The Shettles method suggests that certain vagina environments, sexual positions, and dates of intercourse related to when you ovulate will favor one sperm over the other, based on the sperm’s differences.
So what does this all mean and how can you sway the sex of your baby knowing what we know?
First, you’ll need to figure out exactly when you ovulate.
There are some really great kits out there that can help you determine this. Here’s a really good one with 50 ovulation test strips and close to 20,000 positive reviews.
Once you have a good view of when you ovulate each month, you’ll need to have sex two or three days before it happens.
That way the quicker male sperms will die off.
This gives the slower and more resilient female sperm time to swim up and make it just in time to meet your egg once it makes its way down into your uterus.
Dr. Shettles has also advised avoiding orgasm when trying to conceive a girl. he also recommends shallow penetration.
All of this helps keep the male sperm away longer.
Pretty crazy right? Some have tried to discredit this method over the years but with a whopping 75% success rate I’m guessing the Doc is onto something.

In The End…..
In the end, all you can do is try and it looks like the Shettles Method is not only fun but will really increase your chances of getting the baby you want.
But if you end up getting a surprise boy for whatever reason, I’m sure he’ll be just a perfect little angel too!
All that truly matters is a healthy bouncing babe that you can love.
I wish you all the luck in the world and lots of baby dust!
