ok i have been doing half of the girl diet. Im pretty much cutting back on salt and the big no nos for girls and uping my dairy. I am taking calcium pills and folic acid. I am going to start using cranberry pills as well. My Ph right now is 5. Ive read the best PH for a girl is 4- 4.5

I am not TTC right now. My husband is deployed and and will be home early Dec and i plan to test the PH of his semen as well. But right now im just testing myself.

Anyways every time i test i am a 5 - 5.5. Is this too high to sway girl?? Should i do more of the diet and start the cranberry pills?

No 4.5-5 is fine! Dont forget you dont want to get so acidic that you kill all the sperm off!!

Thanks so much for the response. Im going from 5-5.5 I keep reading 4 is what i should get down to but it seems pretty low to me. Do you think 5.5 is too high for a girl? i never go over 5.5

I would maybe try to get down to 5, but if you cant its still acidic and if you are using timing also then i think the whole sway put together will really favour those girl sperm!!

You test the ph of your cm. You can get ph strips from ebay or amazon, most use the PHion brand.

Hi, I would still try to get it down to 4.5-5... 5 is pretty good.

You test your cm pH buy buying pH test strips.. You wash your hands and dry them... and put one finger in you vag and get the cm closest to you cervix... then wipe a bit on the ph test strip. do not read it once it has started to dry up.
