Onegirlforme-I would watch Cm and Ph closely while on antibiotics. I heard that some women swayed for girls but conceaved boys becasue of antibiotics. If I was trying for a girl I would wait for next cycle and watch my PH closely.
Prayingfor purple-my girl friend conceaved boy while on contraceptive+ antibiotics as well.
you definately have a point here. There are some real dangers related to using antibiotics.
Some people are allergic, some are carriers of some bacteria that you son't want to expose to antibiotics. For example if you have someone with dormant TB, it is better for that person not to overuse antibiotics because you don't want TB bacillus to become "a smart one".
Also, antibiotics were over-prescribed and heavily abused in the past. This abuse + heavy use of antibacterial soaps, detergents and cleaners made bacteria more resistant. The whole medical society in western world took 180 degrees turn and become very stringent in prescribing them. At the same time, in very many countries of the world people can still buy antibiotics over the counter and without prescription.
In our case we are tryng to sway for a specific gender and we are looking for ways to get some extra help.
The truth is that Robitussin is not ment to serve the purpose of thining cervical mucus so sperm can trawel faster. It is created to treat congestion and caugh.
Baking soda is ment to treat heart burn and not to raise PH of reproductive tract. There are a real dangers in overdosing yourself with this one. Simproms are muscle tremor, dizziness, confusion, weakness and thrembling.
.PGD, the queen of gender swaying because it is the only techicue giving 100% results, envolves pumping your body with injections to produce numerous oocites that can be surgicaly removed, fertilised and planted back. I am not sure that all these hormonal injections and surgical procedures are harmless as well.
Furtermore, if you go to your GP and mention drinking large amount of bicarbionate drinks to alkalinize your reproductive tract and taking expectorants with Guaifenesen to make your Cm thiner; red flags will fly.
However, if you go to fertility specialist and mention the book "Taking care of your fertility" and show him/her a page 178 talking about improving cervical fluid quality by using antibiotics and expectorants, he or she will probably know what you are talking about.
Goal of getting pregnant or swaying odds in our case is very often justufying means.
I think that we are all working hard on our dream and on swaying our odds.
It is the metter of the personal preference of how far each of us is ready to go.
Nobody should do anything what makes him/her feel uncomfortable.
This suggestion is again not ment for everyone. It is for despearate girls who have stubborn PH and are not able to get their PH up with dieting, awful BS drinks, lemon water and supplements.
This is a desperate measure for desperate times.
I know, that if my PH do not change with all of this in next two months-I am ready to try this as well. I am not carrier of any nasty bacteria and I am ready to take my chace and do this if I have to.
