Please note,these are only studies that support swaying.  There are studies that do not support it but they are not listed here.  Also note that the studies supporting EGS are in the Swaying gold forum.  Please remember.....

SWAYING IS NOT 100% ONLY PGD IS!!!

 pH Studies: 

 

"CM pH from 9-9.9 favors boys"

Y sperm thrive in a high cm pH, however you don't want it to be any higher than 9.9 for cm and ew (dh can be higher).  You can change cm pH threw diet, supplements,  baking soda douche) or with lubricant (pre-seed. but it isnt' high enough for a great sway)

2006- Lowering men's pH of  semen.  Men who take Cranberry pills can lower their Ph.

http://ezinearticles.com/?Your-Semen---A--Diet--For-Better-Sperm-Taste&id=138648

 

DH’s  pH does matter! But his pH when coming out of the body should not drop below a 7 (below a 7 and he will be shotting dead sperm).  So you want his to be 7-7.5.  Once semen is out of the body it can be lowered to a pH of 4-4.5.

Several animal studies from 1950s confirm that male pH actually matters a lot! “Weir began in 1953 a new series of experiments in which he developed two strains of mice, one with an average blood pH of 7.42 and the other with an average blood pH of 7.46. He found that the interbreeding of those mice with the blood pH of 7.42 altered the female/male sex ratio from 50:50 to 60:40 and the interbreeding of the mice with the blood pH of 7.46 altered the ratio to about 40:60. By cross breeding or reciprocal mating of different sexes of the two strains, he demonstrated that it was the blood pH of the male and not the female which determined the sex ratio of the young.” WEIR, J. A. 1953. Association of blood pH with sex ratio in mice. J. of Heredity 44:133-138. WEIR, J. A. 1955. Male influence on the sex ratio of offspring in high and low blood pH. J. of Heredity 46:277-283. I found this at: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/4225405.html. (This link contains references to several other interesting studies, which might be worth looking into.)

 "High sperm count favors boys" "Low sperm count favors girls"

After much research I have found studies that say high testosterone favors high sperm count, and high testosterone favors male offspring, therefore high sperm count favors male offspring.

 

1998:  This studies shows that low sperm count (or damaged sperm count) favors girls
http://www.andrologyjournal.org/cgi/reprint/19/1/5

 

2003:  This study shows that high testosterone  favors boys
http://humrep.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/extract/18/5/1133-a

 

2004:  This study show that both testosterone for the male favors boys and it also shows that hormones in the female can also play a role
http://humrep.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/19/6/1250

 

Theory: High sperm count favors boys and low sperm count favors girls.  For dh under 48 hours of abstance or over 7 days is low sperm count and over 48 hour to 6 days (with day 4 being the highest) is high sperm count

  Cervical Mucus Studies: "Egg White Cervical Mucus favors boys"

The most fertile cervical mucus favors boys because: 1.  Y sperm swim fastest in it than x sperm 2.  They live longer in ewcm 3.  Usually the pH of ewcm is right for y sperm

 

2003: This is a great study that shows how the 4 different stages of cm affect different sperm migration

http://humrep.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/18/9/1782

 

2004:  This study shows when Y sperm are in ewcm that they swim faster and thrive in the environment.  It goes on to say that y sperm in ewcm have a "68% of the male offspring births"

2004:  This study shows that cm has a filter affect and can 'chose' sperm. 

http://molehr.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/10/2/137

 "CM pH from 4-4.5 favors girls"

Y sperm hate low pH. X sperm can handle low pH with no problems. You can change cm pH threw diet, supplements, douche (lime) or with lubricant (refresh)

Vitex increases LP length and progesterone levels.  The first is important for preventing miscarriage and the second is proposed (on this site) to increase the chance for a girl.

Timing:
There are two timing methods to choose from for ttc a girl: cut off or o+12.  O+12 has better success rates.

2006- Want a girl? Then go on a diet and lose some weight.

[ 23 Jun, 2006 1331hrs IST IANS ]

WELLINGTON: Want to have a baby boy? Tuck into the burgers, fries and ice cream. Want a girl? Then go on a diet and lose some weight. It works for cows, according to John Roche, a scientist at New Zealand's dairy research organisation Dexcel. "And we would expect what holds true for one mammal will hold true across the board," he said. Dexcel and Ireland's Teagasc agricultural organisation studied 1,200 cows in an 18-year research project from 1986 to 2004. They found that cows that gained weight before conceiving were more likely to give birth to bull calves. Those shedding kilos before conception had a better chance of producing heifers (females).
Roche told the Waikato Times , published in Hamilton at the heart of New Zealand dairying country, the research underlined the theory that humans had some control over the sex of their children. "Many theories have been put forward," he said, citing weather patterns, phases of the moon, bathing rituals and the timing of intercourse. "However, there has been little consistent scientific evidence till now."
Roche said it was not clear exactly why weight affected the sex of a cow's offspring. Although the male determined the sex of the embryo at conception, the female had some control over whether to keep a male or a female one. "It's an evolutionary adaptation," he said. "In the wild, males compete with each other for a partner and the bigger male has a distinct advantage. "Female size is not as crucial. Therefore, any particular maternal characteristic that results in a larger offspring is likely to produce more males. "If anything reduces the size of the offspring at birth, it is a disadvantage to the individual to be born male - therefore, there is a greater probability of it being female." Roche said a cow losing weight before conception may have some mechanism that prompted it to reject a male embryo because it was not up to supporting the development of a bull calf.

 


 2007- “Smoking and Conception”  According to this, women who smoke heavily (at least a pack a day) are 1/3 less likely to have a boy. And if dad smokes too, then your chances to have a boy are cut in 1/2. http://www.smh.com.au/news/National/Smokers-more-likely-to-have-girls-study/2007/04/11/1175971135421.html

2013- "Either way, in this battle of the sexes, males likely aren't in control. In fact, the female body probably determines the offspring sex, Garner added.  "The sperm aren't deciding the sex of the offspring. The sperm are these pawns in this great Machiavellian game that's being played out over generations," Garner said." http://news.yahoo.com/baby-boy-girl-mammals-choose-115204964.html
