Nutritional supplements may be able to help people with a variety of sorts of problems or conditions. While most nutritional supplements have not necessarily been proven through clinical trials and scientific study, many people believe they have had positive results with supplements. Supplements have been able to help people when they are trying to conceive, for example. There are even supplements that you can use to help with gender selection when you are trying to conceive a baby.
The nutritional supplements that you can use to help with gender selection will, in many ways, depend on whether you are hoping for a girl or for a boy. If you want to conceive a girl, there are several supplements that may be able to help. Cranberries, for example, lower the pH in the reproductive system. This makes it more difficult for the weaker sperm, that is, the sperm that produce boys, to survive. This favors conceiving a girl. Cranberry supplements should be taken the week before you ovulate. There are also herbal tablets, such as Lydia Pinkham’s tonic, that may be able to help conceive a girl, as well.
The supplements that you can use to help with gender selection if you are interested in conceiving a boy are, of course, different than the supplements you would use for a girl. You should use Evening Primrose Oil, in order to improve the quality of your cervical mucus, which allows the faster boy-producing sperm to reach the egg before they would die off. You should take care not to take evening primrose oil after you ovulate, as it is possible that evening primrose oil could keep the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus.
There may be other nutritional supplements, as well, that can help you with gender selection. While not all of these will be identical, if you look hard enough you will eventually find that the supplements for boys tend to have certain specific ingredients, while the supplements for girls have certain different ingredients.
