As I'm experiencing GD over boy #2, oddly, the Shettles method was mentioned on the show The Doctors today and by my OB yesterday. For me anyway, it has proven true because my two boys were conceived within 48 hrs of ovulation. I really wanted to try Shetlles the second time, but long story short, it didn't happen and I'm very bitter about that.
Now a lot of people here say that Shettles doesn't work, but I just think it does have an impact. Who agrees?
Here's the excerpt for the Doctors web site?
Do sex positions determine sex selection?
Joana, 36, has three daughters and wants to conceive a baby boy. She
asks OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson if any sexual positions or timing of
intercourse can assist in the conception of one sex over the other.
concept of sexual positions and timing of intercourse in relation to
the gender of offspring is known as The Shettles Method, named after
OB/GYN Dr. Landrum Shettles.
“It’s the daddy that actually decides the sex,” Dr. Lisa says. “[The]
mom can only contribute the X [chromosome], whereas the dad can
contribute X and Y [chromosomes].”
(male) chromosome-bearing sperm will move faster, but only live for
about two days, while the X (female) chromosome-bearing sperm will move
slower, but have a longer life span.
