Trying to Conceive a Boy

There are a few things you can try to increase your chances of conceiving a boy.

Male sperm is smaller and faster than female sperm. Male sperm can get to the egg faster than female sperm but it is more fragile and doesn't live as long as female sperm. It is best to have sex as close to ovulation as possible when trying to conceive a boy. You may want to abstain for sex before you ovulate because the female sperm will be alive and waiting for the egg.
