I agree with Jolene regarding timing. Female sperm live longer and are slower swimmes, male sperm live a shorter time and are quicker. Also, sperm live about 48 hours in the body. To try for a girl have intercourse 3 to 4 days prior to ovulation, remember to find the day of ovulation take the length of your cycle minus 14. So if you are fairly regular at 28 to 30 days, you ovulate between day 14 and 16 depending on the month. I hope this helps!

Myth. But one thing you can try is the time you have sex. Girl sperm live longer then male, but male swim faster. So if you want to try for a girl...try having sex a day or two before you start ovulating (theory is the male ones will have mostly died off by then)

In my opinion I don't believe there is anything to you can "do" to conceive a girl or boy for that matter. This is one of those things that is left for God to decide, or for non-believers...for fate to decide. I've read the articles in baby magazines that say certain foods you eat produce girls or boys, same for sexual positions and such. But I just honestly don't buy itno any of it. I'm sure there is lots of information online about these sort of things and you could read up on it & try it out. All I can do is wish you good luck on your next try that you get the girl your heart desires.

That is a myth.  The sperm decides the sex of the is predetermined.  Sorry!  I hope you get your baby girl!  Don't give up!
