This is suggested by a recent study by researchers at Oxford and the University of Exeter in England that suggests maintaining higher level of glucose encourage the growth of male embryos while inhibiting female embryos.
The study recommends consuming wide range of nutrients such as potassium, calcium, and vitamins C, E, and B12. Breakfast, is particularly important, so never skip it!
Amidst a horde of myths, science has resulted into more complex theories about positions. According to Dr Landrum Shettles, MD, author of How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby, deeper penetration during intercourse seems to favour boys.
The woman’s vagina, he explains, is most acidic near the entrance, an environment that male sperm don’t fare well in.
Shettles says deeper penetration puts sperm closer to the egg, reducing the distance the sperm has to travel through the acidic vagina. This gives faster-swimming Y-chromosome (male) sperm a head start over the X-chromosome (female) sperm.
