When you’re trying to conceive a baby boy you’ll probably try many of the hints and tips that are around. There have been suggestions that taking various supplements can alter the cervical mucus in favor of the male sperm, whilst others will increase the health and number of sperm, etc.
Male sperm and female sperm are very different, in many ways. Male sperm are fast swimmers, but are weak and are easily destroyed if subjected to adverse conditions. Female sperm swim more slowly but appear to be much more resilient so they survive a lot longer.
Therefore in order to get pregnant with a boy, you need to do everything you can to help the male sperm reach the egg first and fertilize it.
The supplements that are recommended for the ‘mother to be’ when trying to conceive a boy are as follows: Evening Primrose Oil, Green Tea, Vitamin E, and Folic Acid. These are said to alter the cervical mucus and in some cases make it more alkaline, which favors the male sperm.
The supplements that have been recommended for the ‘father to be’ are said to have a beneficial effect on the sperm and are as follows: Zinc, Ginseng, Vitamin E, and Folic Acid. These are all recommended for raising the sperm count and also strengthening the sperm.
Whilst supplements are pretty safe under most circumstances, you should always read the information that comes with the product. If in any doubt at all, you should seek the advice of a healthcare professional before taking the supplement.
Taking supplements is just one thing that you may wish to try when you’re trying to conceive a baby boy.
