Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHER and sharing your question with our community! Congratulations on your baby girl and your hopes to grow your family.

Thanks to medical and fertility advancements, there are some ways to choose the sex of your child. However, these sex-selection techniques, often called family balancing, does not always work. This method can also be very expensive and time consuming as well. If you are interested in specifically having a baby boy, I would talk to your doctor about this medical option to learn more about it and see if it’s the right fit for you.

Infertility treatments like artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization are some other ways you may be able to select the sex of your baby. 

Another sex selection method some people try is known as the Shettles Method. With the Shettles Method, it is said that having intercourse as close to ovulation as possible will increase your chances of having a boy. Some other ways it says will increase your chances of a boy include not having intercourse 4-5 days before ovulation, only have intercourse right at the time of ovulation or right before, use an ovulation predictor kit (available at many pharmacies) to detect when your body will release luteinizing hormone (LH) right before ovulation. The Shettles Method also claims women should orgasm during sex to increase chances of a boy.

The Shettles Method is not guaranteed and is often criticized by the medical community. I would talk to your doctor to see what they recommend to increase chances of having a boy baby.

Please keep me updated!
