Can You Get Pregnant Right Before Your Period
While there are no guarantees when it comes to natural gender selection, there are a few things that can be done to increase the likelihood of having a little boy or a little girl. If you are specifically wanting a boy or girl, it certainly doesn't hurt to try a few natural techniques. You may not get the gender you want, but it sure is fun trying and the result is the same regardless -- a happy and healthy baby, and that is what really matters. In order to understand how the timing of when you have sex can impact the gender of your child it is important to look at two different things -- first, how ovulation works and second, how the differences in sperm affect this timing. Let's look at ovulation first. Every month, there is a window of fertility that is approximately five days long. Three days prior to ovulation to one day following ovulation are the best times to conceive. Remember, the egg only has 24 hours of viability, and that sperm can live for up to five days in the reproductive tract. Each woman is different however, but this is the generally accepted "window of fertility" that occurs every month.
