Hi Potpourri. I believe if you're trying for a boy you have to BD when you're ovulating exactly. I have 2 DS's & would like a girl this time so my friend told me to BD for days leading upto OV & then stop a few days before. This is meant to be because the male sperm swim quicker but don't live as long but the girl sperm live longer but swim slower.Saying that it must depend a lot on the man's sperm count or what he produces.Hope that helps?

It doesn't work, trust me.
I have 4 boys, all conceived on "girl" dates.
