I try to conceive on an ovulation day does that
mean I get a boy?
you can have a boy or girl with equal chances -
The determining factor for the days that provide
a girl or boy, is whether your ovule's ph is the
opposite to the sperm whch provides the energy to
create when cell and penetrate the egg membrane.
have been told that once you have 2 children of
one kind you are likely to continue having the same
you already have 2 children of one gender, you are
statistically likely to continue with the same gender
and you represent the very large majority of Mothers
we have helped. The chances are that as in the last
2 previous conceptions your ovulation comes at a
time when your polarity is for the same gender.
The conception calendar will establish a discipline
that avoids that ovulation and asks you to conceive
on another one which is only for your chosen gender.
Only 0.1% of men have inherited a total deficiency
of one chromozone so it is unlikely to be the case
with your husband.
I understand that the lifetime of sperm
is sometimes over 2 days. How does this affect the
end of the polarity period on the calendar?
cut-off time at the end of a favourable period allows
for a sperm fertility life of 60 hours which is
about the other methods, can I combine them?
majority of the other methods are old wives tales
based on sex positions or the chinese calendar and
they do not correspond to the way that cells develop
or are created in the body (the way nature chooses).
Since they are read about the users are not registered
so results are not known.
Dr. Landrum Shettles and David Rorvik, who wrote
How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby, claim that because
Y-chromosomes (for boys) move faster but don't last
as long as X-chromosomes (for girls), it makes sense
to have sex as close as possible to ovulation if
a boy is what you want. If you try to conceive two
to four days before you ovulate, you'll most likely
have a girl. According to Dr. Ravnikar, the Shettles
method, and others similar to it, could be sound
in suggesting that couples try for a boy baby closer
to ovulation since Y-chromosome-bearing sperm is
lighter but more fragile than those that carry X-chromosomes.
If you want a girl you should not have sex during
ovulation but a few days before as the x can live
longer that the y chromosome sperm. However Sperm
does not normally stay or live on and remain fertile
- so the method looses credibility as there as many
women as men around! The method has been available
for 25 years with no known success statistics.
The Whelan Method
In her book Boy or Girl?, Elizabeth Whelan, Sc.D.,
disputes the Shettles method and suggests the opposite.
Have there been any recent developments in the
in-vitro field? see
typical mother's question
IVF & sperm sort are very expensive and usually
they need 2 or three trials - example
of IVF fees
A new study published in the September 1998 issue
of Human Reproduction suggests that technology once
used for farm animals may benefit parents who want
girls. Researchers at the Genetics & IVF Institute
in Fairfax, VA, say they can help parents choose
the sex of their baby through flow cytometry, a
procedure in which DNA is stained with a flourescent
dye and sorted. The technology capitalizes on the
fact that Y-chromosome sperm (which produce boys)
has 2.8 percent less genetic material than X-chromosome
sperm (which produce girls). Researchers can use
a DNA detector to divvy up sperm, which is then
artificially inseminated into the woman.
So far, they've had better luck sorting samples
likely to produce girls — 85 percent of the cells
in these samples had an X chromosome. Sixty-five
percent of cells sorted for boys had a Y chromosome.
Of the 14 pregnancies among couples who wanted girls,
13 produced females. Some experts say the findings
are promising. "But it is illegal in most countries,
extremely expensive, the tests are over too small
a number and no one knows what damage is done to
the sperm during the artificial sort process.
Baby choice method relies on the receptors on the
ovule accepting or rejecting the different sperm
depending on the polarity of their energy according
and the mother's bio-clock. That is how nature alternates
the acceptance of a boy or girln sperm, and after
10 years of study of 000s of case histories it was
possible to predict the bio clock over the next
12 months. In fact an extreme diet can also infuence
the energy polarity of the female egg membrane which
has been used with cattle herds. if a woman is given
a high calcium, high magnesium, low sodium, low
potassium diet for a period of 6 to 8 weeks prior
to conception, her receptor sites on the ova shall
attract only X sperms and repel the Y sperms, resulting
in a conception of female child. To reverse the
matter, if a woman is given a high sodium, high
potassium, low calcium, low magnesium diet for 6
to 8 weeks prior to conception she will attract
only the Y sperms and repel the X sperms, resulting
into conceiving a male child.

back to questions
the product not too expensive ?
biologist worked for 14 years discovering and perfecting
the method so as to make his very great contribution
to mankind - and laboratory work is expensive. Now
costs are involved in the marketing and production
of individual calendars. It is a low cost for such
an important service. Remember if you are one of
the very few who do not succeed you do not pay anything
as you receive a refund. That is part of the purchase
BabyByGender method known by the medical profession?
senior gynaecologists, lead by Dr. Frederick Nadal
(Head of Clinique Beauregard, Marseille) have been
recommending it in France for some time. Rather
like the rythm method of contraception the BabyByGender
Method is in harmony with nature it has no medication,
treatment or side effects and is thus entirely outside
the medical field.
have more people not heard about it?
thousands have heard about it throughout the world
but like alternative medecines there are no big
corporation budgets available for media penetration
so it takes time.
is the success rate so far?
the official test results showned a success rate
of 97%. BabyByGender, measures the results, according
to an accounting calculation of the refunds provided
against the total purchasers of the calendar. The success rate has been
constant at just over 87%. Most other methods do
not have a register of users with results. So their
success rates cannot be measured. Nature decides
according to the acceptance by the egg of the X
or Y sperm and the only natural way to obtain the
desired gender is to attempt conception when the
polarity of the egg is correct. This can also be
done by an extreme application of a Calcium-Magnesium
diet or Potassium-Sodium diet. This could be harmful
at an important time for the mother an baby. However recommends a light and therefore harmless
application of the diet together with the calendar.
can't understand how the biologist can predict the
dates with so little information considering my
irregular menstruation cycle?
laboratories require information which identifies
a polarity charge cycle and is not dependent on
your menstruation cycle. In developing the method
the scientist made studies on thousands of conceptions
which revealed a predictability pattern according
to your personal data. Each of these provides many
parameters which eventually narrows down the conception
days for your chosen gender. The data on the studies
remain confidential to the scientists since the
cost of the research have to be recovered by commercialisation.
made scientific studies over 14 years to achieve
the method. Scientific research includes studies
of historical statistics and data based on known
(cell) behaviours. In the same way meteorological
offices predict the climatic changes for the next
few years because experts have made the study over
the last 100 or more years and inserted those historical
parameters with the help of a software program.
My doctor is very well known and does understand
your method and says that it is the father that
chooses the gender?
have been helping mothers since 1997. A Doctor is
not a biologist- it is unlikely that he has ever
seen a human egg under the microscope, probably
not, as it is not his expertise to be a biologist.
Also, Doctors can disagree with other Doctors on
most ailments and when they use drugs and remedies
they are often not conversant with the make up of
the drug or its side effects or that natural healing
can cure just as well on certain ailments. So the
DNA of the sperm is either Y or X but in order to
create the fusion energy for a new cell you need
the opposite PH of the egg (it also helps to penetrate
the egg membrane) The egg alternates its ph so accordingly
it decides to fuse with a Y or X sperm according
to whether its PH is acidic or alkiline. By going
backwards the biologists worked out a formula based
on various parameters to find out when the egg is
accepting a Y or X sperm and that is your BabyByGender
back to questions
my gender preference is not 100% guaranteed, should
I go ahead or not?
know there is a small chance of failure. Little
in life is totally guaranteed- even the contraceptive
pill is not guaranteed and has a failure rate, yet
most use it and rely on it When you choose to go
ahead you will be one of many thousands of mothers
all over the world making the same decision. You
have a 90% chance of success (according to our records
in the market place) if you follow the calendar
disciplines but any baby-boy or baby-girl will always
arrive as a perfect gift and joy. Statistics definitely
show that once you have 2 babies of the same gender
your chance are high that your next baby will be
of the same gender. This is because your ovulation
cycle is favorably based on a polarity for the same

not affect the polarity for a boy or a girl as defined
on your calendar.
if my favorable days for a boy or girl fall during
can just as easily become pregnant during your menstruation
time and provided your religion allows you, it is
a very fertile time. The favorable days are based
on the times when the alternating ph of the egg
membrane receptors are in opposite to the constant
but different ph or polarity of the y (boy) or x
(girl) sperm. Th opposites in ph ( such as acidity
and alkaline) provides the energy both to create
a new cell and penetrate the egg membrane They are
not based on your menstruation period, so any changes
with your cycle have no effect on your fertility
am not sure about my ovulation days, do I need to
very few women can work out or predict their ovulation
dates and actual pregnancies often occur outside
ovulation days and certainly we have had many pregnancies
during menstruation days. However the favourable
days have a strong ph factor of the egg and sperm
and pregnancies and ovulation are more likely to
happen at that time. Whatever day you ovulate, the
importance is to try to conceive on the days that
are right for the favourable days and not at ovulation
times which could be for either gender.
my husband's low sperm count effect my chances?
usualy -it only takes one sperm and quantity is
not an issue as long as there are sperms with either
the chosen X or Y chromozone, which is nearly always
am confused at the choice of gender selection available?
we made the method available on the Internet in
1998 (a majority of our mothers are not internet
patients) a great number of sites appeared copying
our words with no research or basis. They are not
based on the way nature provides new cells but on
other improbable factors if any and without research.
You will find comments like "doctor X was able to
work out from conception dates of 1000 women the
sex of the child immediately". It does not happen
that way. Our laboratory work took 6 years of tests
and the calculations according to individual analyses'
are possible only through a very complicated software
inter-linking the parameters of each mother.
I change the menstrual cycle to coincide with the
polarity cycle ?
most likely time to conceive is 1 to 2 days before
ovulation rather than on the day of ovulation. There
is little information to be sure that it can happen
the day after but it is likely.
are some ways of knowing when you ovulate but the
predetermination of the ovulation day is very difficult
- however let us say for example that you are happy
to think (as has been the thinking in the past)
that you ovulate 15 days counting back from your
expected first day of bleed, then in that event
you can change your menstrual cycle by taking a
course of 21 low dosage pills 15 + 21 + 3 (to bleed)
days before your estimation of the day before ovulation
ie in this case 39 days before your first favorable
day of the favorable period shown on your calendar.
Avoid re-scheduling if it's only one favorable day.
However after some years talking to our mothers,
it is clear that the ovulation day moves around
a lot and that sometimes it happens shortly after
bleeding and sometimes twice in one calendar month
but as expected, it often happens during a strong
polarity period as defined (favorable) by the conception
of our mothers conceive in the first 6 months and
it is of course on a favorable day, irrespective
of their menstrual cycle. mothers who have 2 or
3 babies of the same gender often find that the
favorable days mostly fall during their menstruation
time, that probably means that without the calendar
they would have had the same gender again-as they
may not have tried to conceive then. So conception
will now occur at or near their menstruation since
the calendar dates are being followed but this time
for the other gender.If after a few months there
is no pregnancy it may be more comfortable to change
the menstration cycle. Its easy to change but the
polarity of the ph is unchangeable. The cycle usualy
reverts back to its original cycle dates after a
I combine this with the Shettles method ?
have not studied the Shettles method fully but here
is my answer from my personal observations working
here. We have many people who come to us after they
have tried it- as i said it is not the way that
nature selects the gender> the weight of the different
dna of the x and y sperm is minute and not enough
to have one or the other win the race or to stay
behind and wait for the next ovulation, Only the
opposite polarities created by the different ph
s on meeting give the energy for the penetration
of the membrane of the egg and the fusion to create
a new cell, thats how the body (all mamals) works
biologically and there can be no other reliance
be it sexual positions or chinese calendars winner
of the race of 700 sperms over a tiny distance but
if it makes you feel happier and you are one of
the few mothers who can accurately predict the dates
of the next ovulation then by all means combine
both methods plus of course our recommended diet
which increases the right ph or polarity. See also
can read a little more about it in the book "Getting
pregnant" by Doctor Neals Lauersen and collette
can you explain twins of different sex being born
days when the ph of the mother is not definable
or strong, are called neutral days when you can
conceive either sex; if the the conception happens
during a favorable day for na specific gender according
to your conception calendar, then both eggs will
only accept either a boy or girl sperm as planned.
so you can have twins of different sexes when the
calendar is showing days when the polarity is not
definable or weak when you should not attempt conception.

we offer. You are balancing your family not only
for your own greater happiness but also for them.
Those who unlike you do not share the same imbalances
are not qualified to judge as they are not in the
same situation - if they were they would probably
share your views.Once a mother has 2 boys, the chances
are high that the next child will also be a boy
as she is continuing to conceive in the same monthly
ovulation cycle whereas with the calendar the ovulation
time for the other gender are avoided.
who might accuse us of playing God are doing the
same by telling what you should and should not do
- ignore them- It is not a case of engineering but
like those who use the rhythm method of contraception,
it is working with nature's way. You yourself are
part of Nature and therefore your desire is also
part of Nature.
Even the contraceptive pill received strong criticism
in the first 3 years for interfering with the size
and timing of the family and yet today it is seen
as part of every parent's normal entitlement to
decide when to have a child and the size of family
that they can manage. Now that parents can choose
the gender their next child this reduces the need
to have a larger family than desired bynot continuing
to keep trying for a boy or a girl.
is the right time to try conception for a baby boy:
some people say on ovulation day, others say 12-24h
before ovulation ?
is just a question of having alignment between ovulation
and a day when the ph of the sperm is acidic and
the ph of the egg membrane is alkaline and the BabyByGender
calenda gives you these dates - nature does not
choose according to any sperm lying around from
2 days previous to the ovulation. After ovulation
there is no hope of a conception at all ! If you
are trying for a boy you must provide an alkaline
ph as opposed to acidic.
I have read by Hazel Chesterman - Phillips called
"Choose the Sex of your baby - the Natural Way"
which again says that it is all down to timing (Shettles
method). My second son was conceived 2 days before
ovulation !! I assumed I must have just ovulated
early that month for some reason?
there is a difference in the weight and agility
of sperms with the boy or girl DNA which biologists
say there is not, then there would be very few girls
around as normally sperms do not lie around. There
were never any tests of the Shettles method as users
were never registered. We have had many clients
who have tried it - Dr Shettles did agree at the
end of his life that the ph was very important for
nature to choose the gender, so that dieting creates
the right PH to conceive a boy or girl. that's what
is basis of by the BabyByGender calendar whioch was
not available during Shettle's lifetime.
