Gender Selection : The Ultimate Choice

Children are a great blessing to their parents, and a gift to mankind. Being childless is a curse that many families bear in silence, especially around family gatherings and holidays. It is very important to appreciate all children for whom they are, regardless of their sex. Nevertheless, many couples regard the gender of their next child to be very important because they would like to balance the sexes of their children.
Did you know that to a great extent you can choose the sex of your next baby? There are certain techniques that may help you so that you will not be limited to having children of one sex. If you are concerned about the sex of your next child, this article will provide you with important information.
The following are common misconceptions about factors that influence the sex of your next child:

• Eating or avoiding certain foods will not make a difference.
• Having the female reach orgasm first has no influence.
• The depth of penetration at the time of ejaculation does not matter.
The following are factors that may in fact influence the sex of your next child:
• Position at the time of intercourse may slightly influence the sex outcome Couples who conceive during intercourse where the male enters his wife from the rear approach (“doggy” style) have a slight increase in bearing a son. In conceiving a daughter, the position of the couple at the time of intercourse does not seem to matter at all.
• The most successful results of gender selection over the last 20 years have been the obtained using albumen gradients for sperm selection of sex. Using this method you will have a child of the chosen sex 70% of the time. This relates to a 40% increase over the normal rate of having a boy or a girl.

Determine gender or gender selection

The sex chromosomes determine the gender of a child at the moment of fertilization. If the egg is fertilized by an X bearing sperm the child will be a daughter, and conversely if the egg is fertilized by a Y bearing sperm the child will be a son. The ratio of genders at birth is 51% males to 49% females. This ratio holds true for the human species, as proven by many studies.
