Gender Selection: What Is Your Personal pH?

woman with test

What Do the Levels Mean?
pH levels range from 0 to 14, with 0 being the highest acidity and 14 being the most alkaline. To conceive a girl, your levels should range from 4 to 4.5 for the mucus reading and the sperm rating should be between 7 and 7.5. To conceive a boy, your mucus reading should range from 7.5 to 9 and the sperm reading should be above 9.

How to Increase or Decrease Your Readings
Calcium, Magnesium, and highly acidic food will lower the pH level of the mucus and semen. Foods high in potassium and sodium, such as salt and bananas, will raise your pH level. Women may also choose to use an acidic douche.

What Are The Risks?
While there are many websites and articles to tell you how to alter the pH level of your mucus and sperm, you should consult with a doctor before attempting the methods. Following the recommended pH levels is also not a 100 percent guarantee. If you are disappointed by the gender of your child and feel depressed or despondent, consider talking to a medical professional.

    Hi, I am a new member, I speak english as a second language that’s why you’re going to see many wrongs in my writing. Okay, so I have two girls 9 and 5 years. I want the third and the last one to be a BOY. I read a lot about all methods but the confusing thing is how raise my PH level? Each website give a different food chart . I followed one but untill now my PH level is 6.5. Can anyone help me please!!

    Read ‘Swaying’ by Lucinda Blanchard on Amazon. It’s a fictional account of two woman who really want a daughter and try lots of crazy methods to sway the odds including testing the pH. There is a really funny bit in it with the husband and his pot!

    I have tried everything too but ended up with a boy instead of a girl! I definitely don’t want another boy again…i have actually heard many people increasingly talk of PGD gender selection services like these guys offer. http://www.genderselectionclinic.org/. This procedure is supposed to offer a a guarantee that i will conceive so i’m definitely considering this as a serious option, even if it means travelling to another part of the world. I’m in the UK so cannot have it done here.

    So I’ll have to eat a lot of bananas to have the chance of conceiving a boy?! Cool 🙂

  6. I did not know this! There are so many ways to try for certain genders! I am going to remember this for my next child.

    what I’ve read, searched and collected in my head…5 years ago to today,
    the girl sperm survives in acid, and the boy sperm survives in alkaline.. the girl sperm last 72 hours and the boy sperm last 36 hours, the ovulating egg last 24 hours only.
    for a boy you should rise the alkaline in you by avoiding milk and eating bananas for potassium. and do ovulation test that indicates you’ll ovulate between 24 to 36 hours after, so do a second test 24 hour after, if is positive yet, then in the next 24 hours you’ll ovulate, wait around 6 to 10 hrs and try to conceive. don’t move, stay calm after. Only try that day, and be calm a week before starting.
    if you want a girl, just keep trying like 5 to 3 days before you ovulate. and add milk and cheese or yogurt to your diet to be more acid.
    🙂

    Interesting but as much and I want a boy to go with the gril I already have I don’t think I’ll be doing this.

    I have heard abt the female sperm lasting longer and the male sperm swim faster but don’t last as long. The pH thing is new to me. Interesting article.

  12. sayhola says:

    I never realized pH had so much to do with it – I always thought one gender of sperm lasted longer in the woman and the other gender died off sooner… can’t remember which is which, though. Anyone ever heard of this? Trying to get hubbs on board with ttc #2! 🙂 So happy with my son, the gender of our next won’t matter one bit to me–we were surprised at delivery and hope to be again someday!
