Are you one of those women who love the idea of having a baby boy? We know how that feels. Getting pregnant means a 50-50 chance of conceiving a boy. A few years ago, you would have to do your thing and wait. These days, it’s entirely possible to decide if you want to have a boy or a girl, as there are many tried-and-true methods out there.

Some may sound a little weird; others may be absolutely wacky; but as long as you get pregnant with a boy, it doesn’t quite matter, does it? If you want to know the secrets of getting pregnant with a boy, we’ve got some great tips specifically for you. Check them out below.

1. Have Sex as Close to Ovulation as Possible

Did you know that male sperm cells swim faster than female ones? Meaning, if you can get those little ones to your egg faster, then the odds of conceiving a boy are extremely high. But keep in mind that male sperm cells also die the fastest, so for your baby-making sex to be successful, you will want to hop into bed as close to ovulation as possible. This ensures that male sperm cells reach your egg the first, so the result is a beautiful baby boy! Don’t know when you’re ovulating?

The easiest way to calculate the approximate date when you’re supposed to ovulate is by counting 12-14 days back from the date of your next scheduled period. So, if your next period should come on September 30, then you will probably ovulate between September 16 and September 18. Start charting your basal body temperature about 5-6 days before you ovulate. You’ll know the egg has been released when you notice an increase in your BBT. Also, take note of the characteristics of your cervical mucus, including consistency, color and amount. Ovulation discharge looks very much like uncooked egg whites, is very slippery and stretchy, and is expelled from your vagina in very large amounts, up to 20-30 times more than normally.

2. Male Sperm Cells Prefer Alkaline Environments

Eat like a man, girl — no, we’re serious. Male sperm cells have a preference towards alkaline environments. Normally, both your vagina and uterus are acidic to keep infections at bay and stave off pathogens, so this can make it difficult for boy sperm to unite with your egg. Before you start conceiving, eat more salty foods, red meat, and drink more soda. If your body’s environment is alkaline well before those little guys get in there, then they will be more likely to fertilize your egg.

3. Have an Orgasm

Does this sound embarrassing? Well, it shouldn’t. Orgasms cause a lot of vaginal lube that helps alkalinize your vagina and part of your reproductive tract, making it more conducive to producing boys. Instead of hopping into bed just for the sake of conceiving, try to relax and make your experience as enjoyable as possible. If you can reach orgasm before your partner does, then you’ll boost your chances of conceiving a baby dramatically.

4. Take… Cough Syrup?

Cough syrup, as its name suggests, is the medication you take when you get a simple cold or influenza. But according to some women, it’s enough to take a dose of cough syrup before sex to boost your chances of getting pregnant with a sweet baby boy. Apparently, cough syrup contains guaifenesin, which thins the mucus membranes of the cervix, thus facilitating the mobility of your partner’s sperm cells. If you make sure to keep your body’s environment as alkaline as possible, have sex right before or when you ovulate, and take a dose of cough syrup right before that, then you’ll likely conceive a boy! So stock up on cough syrup and get busy!

5. Avoid Sex One Week Before Ovulation

You’ll probably ask — “Wait, what?” But it’s true. Although you have a chance of conceiving if you start having sex up to 7-9 days before you actually ovulate, you should keep in mind that your partner’s body won’t produce enough sperm every time. Meaning, if you keep having sex every day, or every other day, during a whole week before you actually ovulate, the sperm count will be low right before you ovulate, or the day you ovulate. What does this mean?

It means that your chances of conceiving a baby boy will also decrease if there are not enough sperm cells, and specifically male sperm cells, to fertilize your egg. The conclusion? Stay away from sex one week before ovulation. If you make sure to chart your basal body temperature every day, and have sex right when you notice the increase, the probability of conceiving a boy will be much higher.

6. An Old Wives’ Tale: Check the Moon

There are, of course, some really weird ways to get pregnant with a baby. But for some women, it seemed to be very successful. One of them is checking the moon. If you have sex on the night of a moon quarter, you’ll definitely get pregnant with a boy. Whether this really depends on many factors, but who knows — maybe the tale is true after all!

7. Get Your Man to Drink a Cup of Joe Before Sex

Unless your man hates coffee, then he’ll certainly love a cup of Joe right before sex! Researchers aren’t sure how this works, but coffee appears to give your man’s little guys some extra energy to move to your egg. So if you really want a boy, get him to drink a cup of his favorite caffeinated beverage before sex to boost the likelihood to get pregnant with a baby boy!
