What was the gender and did you use OPK to detect surge in LSH?

OPK and Baby's Gender

Postby jenniona » Tue Jul 08, 2008 10:45 am

I was just reading through my copy of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" (it makes for good bathroom reading! lol) and came across Chapter 17's info on choosing gender. According to Weschler (who is citing the Shettles method of gender selection), BDing after you detect O with an OPK increases the chaces of having a boy. If you want to have a girl, she says you should BD several days before your peak day (no closer than two days before). She does state that if you have problems with infertility it might not be worth trying for to specifically conceive a girl. So, I was curious as to whether BDing after OPK detects surge does indeed effect gender. So here's a poll. ;) Thanks in advance for answering!!

I used OPK's both times I've conceived, I have 1 boy and a girl on the way. Both times I waited for +OPK, then BD that night and the following day.

Thank you for responding Ziza! So it's not a a sure-fire method. (Of course it doesn't claim to be.) :)
