Ashley Spencer’s How To Conceive The Gender Of Your Choice – Phony or Real?

How to conceive the gender of your choice book by Ashley Spencer is one of the top books on baby gender selection niche on the net. Another top-of-the shelve one is Alicia Pennington’s “Prince or Princess” and of course”How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby”also known as “The Shettles’ Method” by Dr Shettles. Hereafter is a review of Ashley’s book.

Ashley treats baby gender selection in three major categories as most books on baby gender determination are won’t to do. The three categories being, Getting The Ovulation Right, Diet Control and Sex Positions.

Under each group, Ashley tells you what to do and what not to do to get a baby boy and what to do and what not to do to get a baby girl. I must say the book is not precisely divided into these three sections but it is easily discernible to baby gender writers.

What couples are asked to do are no brainers. In fact, they are things you and I do always but differently. However, Ashley tells us how to do them, when to do them during sex-for-baby, with the objective of determining the sex of our baby.

Ovulation And Pregnancy

Ashley says getting the ovulation day correct is the pillar on which baby prediction method rests. The influence of the 24 hour window on baby gender formation is well covered, just as you have materials on pregnancy and menstrual cycle. For women who do not want to buy ovulation kits, Ashley gives you telltale signs of ovulation. She tells you though that these are not 100% accurate and you will need ovulation kits supported with these signs so as to get close to 100% accuracy.

Diet Control

In Ashley Spencer’s “How to conceive the gender of your choice”, different diets for different body pH conditions are covered. She gives a list of foods that will make the woman’s body alkaline for a baby boy and those that will make the body acidic for a baby girl. Ashley is funny, she has some foods she calls “Electric Foods” and yet some others she labeled ”Trouble Food”. Trouble food? No, they won’t give you stomach cramps which will send you to your medic, but they may scale down your chances of determining the gender of your baby correctly.

Sex-For-Baby Positions

Ashley covers the effect of sex positions, orgasm, and ejaculation on baby gender determination. You have sex positions for a baby boy and how the pull-out system will favor a certain sex. Categorically, you are informed why the usual missionary method will tilt the chance in favor of a girl and why the cowboy and doggy styles will favor a baby boy. Men have a bonus here; Ashley tells you the sex methods that put you in control when you are at it.

Pluses Of The Book.

· They are natural methods.

· Not expensive.

· No visits to medics. No drugs, no Chinese charts etc.

· Methods are no brainer

· No side effects

· Fun to carry out. You enjoy yourself while at it.

A Flawless Book?

Definitely no. There are rooms for improvement especially in using charts to explain the different sex positions. The book could also have been more appropriately titled by having the word “baby” in the title, but having a family picture as the cover is commendable.

What I Dislike In The Book.

Ashley writes with some cynicism. Her reference to Henry the 8th and why pilots have more baby girls than boys, to me, takes away some seriousness from this issue of baby gender determination. For a Mother who was ready to spend $100,000 to have a boy after three girls, Ashley should know that having a baby of choice is a serious business. One would expect her to stick with her natural methods that work. However, if you are the light-minded type, you may not see it the way I do.


Ashley book draws largely from what has been scientifically proven and largely believed. It is not a bad book on baby gender determination and with almost 12,000 couples as satisfied buyers working out at 95% success s rate, you cannot ask for more. Even those high-tech methods costing fortunes cannot do better. To answer the question in the title of this essay, “How to Conceive the Gender of Your Choice” is real and not a scam. It is not phony. With a 60 days iron clad guarantee and the very affordable price, it is a good investment on how to choose the sex of your baby.
