There are many different ways of conceiving. If you are trying to conceive and have been looking for tips on getting pregnant, you have come to the right place. The most common method of conceiving is naturally, when a man and a woman have unprotected sex while she is ovulating. There are many other artificial methods of insemination that have mixed success rates. A woman could opt for an IVF or an IUI procedure. There are also many fertility treatments available for both men and women. If conceiving is not an issue, you may be interested in a gender prediction test, or perhaps you want to try for a boy or a girl. Either way, we have reviewed many resources for you.

Conceiving a Boy

Conceiving a boy is not like flipping a switch. In fact, there have been no concrete methods found that can guarantee the conception of a boy. There are methods that claim to produce a boy based on diet, exercise, time of the month, sexual position, and a number of other factors. These methods, while many swear by them absolutely, offer only a glimmer of hope.

One method, using the Chinese lunar calendar to time sexual intercourse, claims to be 99% effective. Another method says to ensure the male reproductive fluid exits the man as close to the ovulation point as possible. So unfortunately, if your question is "How do I have a baby boy," the answer is very confused and inconclusive. If it makes you feel better, the news is the same for those that want girls.

Conceiving a Girl

In order to
conceive a girl, there are three basic tips that many people believe to be true. Continued below....

Keep in mind that while some of these methods have been studied by doctors, they are not hard and fast ways for making a baby girl.

The first tip is to have intercourse 3-4 days prior to ovulation. This way, all the Y-chromosome sperm have died. The second tip is to make sure the woman does not orgasm. When a woman orgasms, the environment in the female reproductive organ shifts in favor of sperm carrying the boy making Y-chromosome. The last tip, is to, um, only insert a little bit. The deeper the insertion, the better chance a Y-chromosome makes it to the egg.

Conceiving Twins

There is not much you can do in order to increase your chances of having twins. The majority of twins are fraternal, meaning the woman produces two eggs which are both fertilized.

If you have a family history of twins, you may have a higher chance of having twins yourself. The trait which allows two eggs to be released during your cycle is believed to be hereditary. There have been some studies done to determine if there was a way for a woman to naturally increase her chance of having twins. Although their findings require more study, some ideas include: taking a folic acid supplement, eat more dairy, gain weight, attempt to conceive while breastfeeding, or waiting until you are older to attempt to conceive.

Conceiving with PCOS

If you are wondering if it is possible to get pregnant if you have been diagnosed with PCOS, the answer is yes.

There are treatments and therapies available that may make it possible for a woman diagnosed with PCOS to have a baby. It is also entirely possible to have a baby without treatment, however the chances are far lower. PCOS and pregnancy can exist in the same woman; it does not necessarily lead to infertility. Also, there have been studies that show after a woman with PCOS has a successful pregnancy, the PCOS can go dormant, or go away completely.
