It’s very amusing to discover what you remember as a 14 year old in human biology class. All those things you thought were utterly pointless – oh look, turns out they come in handy after all.
I knew that there are two kinds of sperm – the ones carrying the Y chromosome (boy sperm) and the ones carrying the X chromosome (girl sperm).
But I DID NOT KNOW, until recently, that boy sperm behave differently to girl sperm! It’s been scientifically proven that :
Boy sperm are smaller, swim faster, but die quicker.
And girl sperm move slower, but they last longer.
Keeping this in mind, since we want a GIRL, we are supposed to have sex every day from 2-3 days BEFORE ovulation, and none during and after ovulation. This allows the boy sperm to die off and gives the girl sperm longer time to swim to the egg.
Therefore, having sex close to ovulation (and none during or after) boosts the chances of conceiving a girl.
It’s all about timing.
It’s all about knowing exactly when you ovulate.
I’m sure it’s all about that notorious phone call, “HONEY COME HOME NOW! WE HAVE TO HAVE SEX. RIGHT. NOW.”
