Dr Larisa Corda, Channel Mum Women’s Health & Fertility Expert

Larisa Corda fertility expertHello, my name is Larisa Corda and I’m a Consultant in Reproductive Medicine.  In 2010 once my medical studies were complete, I decided to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, caring for women from pre-conception through to pregnancy and beyond.

I believe in a holistic approach, combining physical, psychological and lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise and spiritual well-being, into the treatment I give.

I have a particular interest in wanting to help women facing adversities and I campaign passionately for better welfare and healthcare for women around the globe.  I strongly believe that every woman deserves to be empowered with the necessary tools and information to be able to make her own  decisions and  judgements and that is one of the main reasons I am so excited to be working with Channel Mum.  As the Fertility and Pregnancy Expert-in residence, I’m here to help women of all ages and backgrounds get the information and support they need to move forwards in their own journey and achieve their goals.

How To Get Pregnant With A Boy – Channel Mum

Wondering how to conceive a boy? Then you might be interested in finding out the ways that are said to stack the odds in your favour when it comes to the sex of your baby. While there’s no sure-fire way to sway the gender of your child, various theories have been around for generations, and it can’t hurt to try. There are lots of theories and claims made about gender swaying, and today SJ is bringing you her top tips for how to get pregnant with a boy:

She already had two sons when she tried out some techniques for conceiving a baby girl, and sure enough she fell pregnant with little Evelina. If you fancy seeing the techniques she used, and trying your hand at making a little girl, you can find those right here

How To Have A Girl?

1) The Timing Or Shettles Method – This involves timing sex so that there is a higher chance of boy sperm (carrying the Y chromosome) meeting your egg. Dr. Shettles suggests having sex as soon as you ovulate.
2) Abstain from sex after you have ovulated so there is no chance of the girl sperm meeting the egg.
3) Orgasm. It changes your cervix to make it more favourable to the boy sperm.
4) Have sex 4 days before you ovulate as much as you can, but not before or after.
5) Use deep penetration methods so that the boy sperm reaches the egg easier.
6) Eat foods that contain lots of potassium and sodium.

How To Get Pregnant With A Girl – Channel Mum

Although we don’t like to admit it, many of us do have a secret preference for a particular gender. And you know what? It’s completely natural and nothing to be ashamed about. Here’s SJ with her six top tips:

Maybe you’ve always pictured yourself with a daughter, or perhaps you already have one or more boys and would like to balance it out. There are lots of theories and claims made about gender swaying, and SJ is bringing you her top tips for how to get pregnant with a baby girl in the video above.

More about SJ: She had two sons when she tried out these techniques in the hopes of adding a little girl to her family, and sure enough she fell pregnant with baby Evelina. Was it down to these tricks or was it sheer luck? We’ll never know for sure, but there’s no harm in trying them out! Watch more videos from SJ.

How To Have A Girl?

1) The Timing Or Shettles Method – This involves timing sex so that there is a higher chance of girl sperm (carrying the X chromosome) meeting your egg. Dr. Shettles suggests stopping having sex 2 to 3 days before ovulation.
2) Avoid orgasm – This is because orgasm changes the atmosphere of your cervix and makes it a more hostile environment.
3) Have sex every day – This will increase the volume of girl sperm, but remember to stop having sex at that 2-3 day mark!
4) Do shallow penetration sex positions – Girl sperm are more likely to be able to travel further because of their long life-span.
5) Increase your intake of dairy, calcium and magnesium – girl sperm a meant to thrive more in an acidic environment, so fill up on food that is high in these qualities.
6) Restrict your calories – Try eating between 1,500 and 1,800 calories to increase your chances of having a girl.
