Many married couples find themselves asking the question of the best sex positions to conceive a baby boy, and this guide looks at some of the ways you can improve your chances.
We’ll be looking at some of the recommended sex positions you can use to increase your chances of having a baby boy.
Best Sex Positions to Conceive a Baby Boy
#1 – Doing it from behind
This is one of the most popular sex positions to those who are hoping to conceive a baby boy. This sex position, often known as doggy style, involves the woman positioning herself on her knees, and the male penetrating from behind.
The position allows for deeper penetration, which in turn means the sperm has to travel a shorter distance. This position can also be a lot of fun for couples, and it’s the first recommended position for conceiving a baby boy.
#2 – Try it standing up
This can be a bit awkward to get the hang of, but it holds similar benefits to doing it from behind. Find a comfortable place where both partners can relax.
This position increases the chance of having a baby boy due to deeper penetration, and it’s also thought that male sperm have a strong advantage over female sperm as they have to swim upwards.
Gravity will be pulling the sperm down, and male sperm are stronger than the females, so there is an increased chance of the male sperm successfully navigating to the egg.
#3 – Use a sex position that makes you orgasm
This may sound too good to be true, but when a female orgasms, alkaline levels in the vagina strongly increase, which strongly benefits the male sperm.
Use a sex position that you know you enjoy, and where you have a maximum chance of reaching orgasm.
It’s also worth noted that there are a few other tips you can implement to increase the chances of successfully conceiving a baby boy.
After ejaculation, the female should try to keep her hips elevated for around 20 minutes. This gives the sperm time to find their way to the eggs and will increase the chances of success.
It’s also highly recommended that you wait until the female is ovulating before attempting to conceive. It’s recommended that you avoid intercourse in the days leading up to ovulation.
Whilst it can be tricky to work out exactly when the female is ovulating, there are some great kits than can be purchased relatively inexpensively that can help to guide towards the correct time.
It’s also known that consuming a higher number of calories for the day can help lead to the conception of a baby boy.
Whilst it’s not scientifically proven, many experts recommend eating a diet high in protein, including high energy foods such as bananas, fish and vegetables.
