Most of the articles that you can read relating to how to conceive a son tend to revolve around what the woman should be doing. However in this article we offer some advice on the kinds of things that a man can do that can further increase the chances of them having a boy with their partner.
How To Conceive A Son Tip 1. Abstain From Making Love
When a couple are attempting to have a son and the man would like to increase their chances of more of their sperm carrying the male gene reaching the eggs and fertilizing them they should abstain from ejaculating 4 or 5 days before the woman ovulates. The reason for a man to avoid ejaculating in this time period means that a great number of sperm will be able to build up. This in turn also means that there will be a larger number of sperm carrying the male chromosome that should be able to reach the eggs and fertilize them first.
How To Conceive A Son Tip 2. Keep The Scrotal Temperature Down
If you want to improve the chances of you as a couple having a son rather than a daughter it is important that you don’t allow the temperature around the scrotum to become too high. So you should make sure that you avoid wearing clothing that is too tight. Also the thought of having a relaxing hot bath may seem like the perfect way to start making love to your partner but again the heat from the water could be very detrimental to you having a son.
Ideally the temperature that the scrotum should be at is slightly less than what your normal body temperature is. The problem with the temperature being too high is that it not only will it reduce the sperm count overall but also the sperm carrying the male gene (Y chromosome) is going to die first as it is much more fragile.
How To Conceive A Son Tip 3. Keep A Check On What You Are Eating
Just as with women what you eat can have a serious effect on whether you are able to conceive a boy or girl. As well as eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables you also need to reduce your alcohol intake. The problem with alcohol, although it helps you to feel more relaxed there are properties within it that can create the wrong kind of environment in which the sperm carrying the male (Y) chromosome thrives.
Having said that if you want to increase your chances when looking at your diet for ways on how to conceive a son you should be looking to have some caffeine before you make love. According to one particular method that couples are using for conceiving a son it recommends that you consume two cups of coffee about 15 minutes before making love. Dr Shettles who developed this method (known as the Shettles Method) believes that caffeine provides both types of sperm with a boost. He also believes that it provides slightly more of a boost to the sperm carrying the male gene.
