The closer a sexual intimacy is to ovulation, the higher the probability of conceiving a boy. If sexual intercourse was on ovulation day and the day after, almost certainly a boy would be born. It is because man spermatozoids are more active and quicker reach an egg.
Would you like to know how to calculate an ovulation for conceiving the gender of your choice: a boy or a girl? We will tell you how to schedule your active planning calendar in order to conceive a boy.
How to calculate the ovulation day in order to conceive a boy
Practically 100 percent guarantee of successful conceiving a boy is provided by sexual intercourse (SI) on the ovulation day. The lesser probability of conceiving a boy (however, the probability is still very high) is, if sex will happen on the day prior to the ovulation day, approximately within 12 hours. It stands to reason that the key element to predetermine a male child is to:
NOT to make love within 2-7 days prior to an egg retrieval, but only on the ovulation day and the day after.
What’s the point?
The fact is that man spermatozoids containing the Y-chromosome are very active, but mainly live less than a day. Women cells are more viable, but slow and heavy. Thus, we need to fulfill two conditions:
- To prevent X-sperm cells’ availability in Fallopian tubes during ovulation;
- To provide an open contact 12 hours prior to or 12 hours after an egg retrieval. Provided that Y-spermatozoids will reach the intimate destination point first.

How to calculate the most precise ovulation day, if the period is irregular
In order to conceive a boy in an irregular period, it is required to practice safe sexual intercourse, until tests (LH test or spinnbarkeit test) will be positive or doctor will tell you that ovulation will be today or tomorrow during a folliculometry. Now you can start to measure a basal body temperature and when a curve begins to stream up proceed with an active planning.
Note (!): The basal temperature measurement is not the most reliable method to predict ovulation. As far as the temperature starts to grow after ovulation, and often it is increased gradually and not irregularly. It means that if there will now be any other symptoms or signs of ovulation, you could be late with an active planning
Conceiving a boy in regular period by ovulation date
If the period is regular like clockwork, it is then required to determine the duration of your second phase and deduct the number of days in period. It is easy to determine the luteal phase duration – subtract the ovulation day from the number of days in period.
For example, a menstrual period lasts 29 days, tests + basal temperature + senses + cervical mucus nature suggest that ovulation was on the 14th day of period. It means,
29 – 14 = 15
The regular duration of second phase for a certain woman amounts to 15 days. In general, the normal duration amounts to 12-16 days.
Did you know? If a woman precisely knows the number of luteal phase days and the increased BBT lasts more than this number, it means a possible pregnancy.
