How to Have a Boy: Is It Possible to Influence the Gender of Your Baby?
The first thing you need to do is decide whether you want your child to be male or female.
If you are still undecided, then I suggest that you read my previous post How To Have A Girl: Can You Affect the Gender of Your Child?
If you decided that it’s best if your son/daughter will grow up as a girl, then I recommend reading on. Otherwise, continue reading.
It is possible to influence the gender of your baby. There are many factors that affect this decision such as genetics, hormones, and even social pressures. These factors can all be influenced through education and training. However, there are other ways too which may not involve any sort of special training at all!
There are several methods that can be used to influence the gender of your baby. Some of these methods include:
1) Fertility Treatments – There are various fertility treatments available today that can help you get pregnant.
These treatments can include artificial insemination (AI), IVF, and egg freezing. These procedures require specialized expertise and medical knowledge so they’re usually only performed by doctors with advanced degrees. That being said, it is important to be aware that these treatments are not 100% effective, so they cannot be relied upon to produce the desired results every time.
2) Gender Selection Clinics – There are also several gender selection clinics in many parts of the world that can help you get pregnant.
These clinics tend to only deal with fertility treatments since gender selection itself isn’t seen as a medical issue and requires no training to participate in.
3) Gender Prediction Methods – There are many gender prediction methods that involve certain steps to figure out the gender of your baby.
Some of these methods rely on superstition while others rely on actual science. It is normal for most people to use a combination of these different methods in order to strengthen the outcome.
4) Gender Prediction Software – There are also several pieces of software that can help you predict the gender of your baby.
These programs rely on complicated algorithms to analyze the fluctuation of hormones during your pregnancy. Most of these programs cost money to buy, but there are some that are available for free download.
5) Gender Prediction Sites – There are several websites on the internet that claim to be able to help predict the gender of your baby.
It is important to be wary when using these sites since many of them are unreliable and can provide results that aren’t accurate at all. Most of these sites rely on advertising in order to keep themselves up and running so it’s common for them to use click-bait titles and post misleading content that will either scare or excite you into clicking on it.
6) Gender Predictor Apps – There are several apps on the market today that claim to be able to help predict the gender of your baby.
These apps operate in a similar way to the websites in that they rely on advertising in order to make money. It is important to be careful when using these apps since they are unregulated and do not need to show any proof that they are actually effective.
Now that you’ve chosen your method, it’s time to get started!
IVF, or in vitro fertilization, is a relatively new approach in the medical industry that has helped many couples achieve pregnancy. It involves stimulating the ovaries to help them produce several eggs. These eggs are then removed and fertilized with the father’s reproductive cells, which have also been harvested. After ten days, the embryos can be implanted into the mother’s uterus to ensure proper development.
While this procedure has allowed infertile couples to have children of their own, there is still a relatively high amount of complications that can occur. In fact, many couples see their savings wiped out by the astronomical cost of the treatment and some women even suffer physical stress due to the hormonal injections they are required to take on a daily basis.
However, if you have the money and want a baby as soon as possible, IVF is an option for you.
Option 1: Gender Selection Services – These services claim to use changes in your diet, physical activity, and other factors such as stress to determine the gender of your baby. Option 2: Recreational IVF – This method uses the same techniques and medications that are used in traditional IVF treatments but this process attempts to put the mother in a happier and less stressed state of mind.
With so many advances in the medical field it is hard to believe that there is still not a surefire way to ensure you have a baby boy. However, with these two options you can at least increase the chances of having exactly what you want.
Deciding which method is right for you is completely dependent on your situation and personal preference. Think carefully about your choice before moving forward.
Once you’ve finished reading, click on “NEXT” to select your fertility treatment.
The cost of the IVF procedure is around $15,000 (US dollars) for one cycle of treatment. This does not include any medication that may be required during the IVF process.
Of course, the cost can be lowered if you do not require all of the medication or have a less expensive clinic perform the injection; however, this may not be safe and is not advised.
If you do not have $15,000 (USD) to spend on this process, you can choose the gender selection option instead.
The cost of the gender selection procedure is significantly less expensive than the IVF option; however, the success rate of having a baby of the desired gender is much lower.
You have chosen Option 1: Gender Selection Service.
