Have you ever wondered how to determine the sex of your babies and do you really think it’s possible? Science thinks it’s possible and according to science certain conditions determine the sex of your child.
According to science, the sex of the foetus is influenced by the hormone levels of the parents at conception, with more boys being conceived earlier on in the cycle.
If couples have a lot of sex they are more likely to conceive before the woman reaches her peak fertile time which is around two days before ovulation, at an earlier point in her cycle.
So when a couple maximise opportunities for making love with intense bouts of activity, with less consideration to where a woman is in her cycle, more conceptions are likely to occur earlier in the fertile period and therefore give a higher chance of having a boy.
So what about girls? Just as boys are more likely to be born at the end of wars and through frequent sex, relatively more girls are born in times of prolonged parental stress. A classic example of this is the 1995 Japanese earthquake and the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York in 2001. After both events, relatively more girls were born. Prolonged financial hardship also produces a similar trend.
Researchers investigating miscarriages in California found that there were more miscarriages of male babies when the unemployment rates were higher between 1989 and 2001.
So it is being argued that as more sex produces boys, less sex produces more girls.
So what are your thoughts about these discoveries? Do you really think they could be true or are they flawed?
