About having a baby girl

Do you want to have a baby girl? Scientists have alluded to the possibility of how to conceive a baby girl deliberately.  A biologist called Dr. Landrum Brewer Shettles devised the Shettles Method in the 1960s.

The method is a child conception idea that is reputed to assist in determining the sex of a baby. Shettles’ findings were chronicled in the book How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby which was published in 1971 and has been printed in various editions ever since. The book was coauthored by Shettles and American novelist David Rorvik.

In the book, Shettles outlines various steps and methods a couple can use to determine the sex of the baby based on the studies of the sperm.


It is important to note that it is the man who determines the sex of the child because he has both X and Y chromosomes. The former gives rise to a girl while the Y is a male sperm.

Shettles method is premised on the idea that the male sperm (Y) is more fragile than the female (X) one. The female sperm can thrive in acidic environments while the male one cannot.


This is how to conceive a baby girl:

1. Shettles says you need to have sex 2-3 days before ovulation


Shettles method states that having sex 2-4 days before ovulation favors the female sperm which can live longer than the male one. Thereby conception of a baby girl is most likely to happen. Scientists recommend that the woman keep an ovulation chart so that she can predict the days of her cycle that she ovulates.

Shettles further advises that you should avoid sex when you have clear, egg-yolk like vaginal mucus since it is a sure sign of ovulation. The male sperm can swim faster than its female counterpart to get to the finish line.

Word of caution- Doctors say that avoiding sex at this time could lead to no conception at all.

2. Take acidic foods

According to Shettles, a woman should take acidic foods in the days leading to ovulation. This will foster an acidic environment in the vagina. Since male sperms cannot survive in an acidic environment, they will be eliminated.


Acidic foods such as wholegrains which include breads, cereal and rice, meat, candy and cakes, maize will help to foster an acidic environment in the vagina.

In turn you should also reduce the intake of alkaline foods such as fruits in order to create an acidic ph.

3. Sex position

Shettles method advises that for conception of a girl to happen, deep penetration should be avoided. While the male sperm can sprint faster than the female one, it was not made for long distance since it will faint on the way.

In essence couples that desire a baby child are advised to have sex in the missionary position.


Shettles further recommends regular sex from the day when a woman finishes her period. It helps deposit lots of the longer lasting X sperm so that they are ready to fertilize the egg once it is released from the ovaries.

Regular sex is also recommended so that the male partner's sperm count can reduce the amount of short-lived X sperm.

4. Avoid Orgasm

It is also recommended that in the pursuit of a baby girl, women should avoid having an orgasm during sex. According to Shettles, female orgasm fosters an alkaline environment which favours the male sperm.

Shettles further claims that muscular uterine contractions give the male sperm a boost towards the fallopian tubes where conception takes place.


As a disclaimer, it is important to note that this method has an estimated 65% - 70% success rate. Moreover, the sex of a child is ultimately determined by probability. You may target a girl but eventually conceive a boy.

Therefore parents are advised to brace themselves for any eventuality.
