Don't beleive in Shettle's method


Hi All, I would like to tell you attempts to conceive a boy and ended up with a girl.

1. I used OPK(Clearblue ovulation kit) to track ovulation and it turned to smiley face in the morning around 10 am and we had sex aroung 1pm that night.
2. we abstained from sex 4-5 days before the actual day.
3. my husband wear loose knickers which is believed to give more sprem count
4. The only thing I didn't do was having an orgasm before my partner.(which is still optional )
5. I had lot of cervical mucus that day.

But it didn't work as i got a baby girl.

So anyone who wants a particular gender I would say go for PGD_gender selection. I know its expensive but it gives you 99.9% accuracy.

Thanks

we weren't trying for a particular gender either time. in fact, second time we weren't trying at all but with bella we dtd 4 days before ovulation & lauren was seven days before (we really weren't trying!), so both were likely to be girls from dr shettle's theory.

We dtd the day after I ovulated and had a girl!

It is absolutly not possible to get the sex you want based on any menthods like this, or what you eat, or when you DTD or anything. The fact remains all the evidence pretty much points to 50/50. Well slightly 51% boy and 49% girl. I am afraid that you get what you are given.
