Re: did anyone try the dr. shettles method?

I just read a little bit about it. Sounds like a lot of work and calculations.

I do find it very interesting that caffeine would give the Y sperms a "jolt" but not the X's. I wonder if there is any information/correlations with caffeine intake of parents and instances of ADHD in their sons. I only ask because I work in a special ed setting where there are many more boys than girls and more often than not, there is an ADD or ADHD classification for the boys.

We tried it, and I'll let you know in July if we were 'successful.' Of course that is really irrelevant when all we truly hope for is a healthy-10toes-10fingers-baby. But we'd thought we'd at least try it.

I read up on it as I had no idea what it was and I have to say, it made me giggle. Very cute..but sounds like a lot of work as well!Chat Icon

Not to be off subject, but DH and I seem to be using the What I Say It Is method: He insists it's a boy because well, he wants one therefore it is. men.Chat Icon

We are using the thing someone on here posted that the earlier you get PG during the O time, the more chance it will be a boy and vice versa. Something about the male sperm being faster but the female sperm living longer.

Ultimately though we will be happy with a Chat Icon or Chat Icon
