I recently read somewhere that women who work in a male dominated work place have slightly higher levels of testosterone and are therefore more like to conceive a boy. I'm just a little curious because I work in a heavily male dominated field and was wondering if this really would make me more likely to have boy? and why?

There is a theory that women who are competitive generally produce more testosterone, which sways boy....do you have any kids so far? I am a teacher, which is generally a more female specific profession, and yet I have 2 boys.......

Eh, not really thinking that has as much pull as other factors. I am genetically low testosterone. My dad is low and my mom has none naturally (they both use medication to keep the levels in the normal range). I tested in the low range, but I do make some naturally. My mom has one girl and two boys. And I have two boys.

By that fact, we should have nothing but a bunch of girls.

hmm kind of goes like that for me.

when i conieved my dd i worked in a bakery with all female staff.
when i conieved my ds i worked in a diy shop doing alot of building and heavy lifting most of the staff where male.

i now work in a bookies which normally a male enviroment but its like a office job and staff are all female so hoping that means girl again.

It doesn't seem to work that way at my workplace. We only have a couple male staff and roughly 10 female staff. We have had about 15 boys and only 2 girls conceived there over the years lol
