is there one?

Hi,
This question kinda just popped into my head a couple hours ago....and i i dont really know the anwser.
I mean i know theres ones to find out if he can have kids, but can they tell what hes more likey produce?
I guess the real question(s) is can this test show that?
Or is there anther kind of test that can maybe do that?

I mean no big deal if there isnt i just it would be cool if there is or ever could be one

Re: is there one?

No there are no test to tell whether a guy is more likely to produce girls or produce boys.
Gratned one can increase one's chances of a certain sex but it requires quite a bit of work and knowledge of the female's cycle. You see sperm come in two ways boy sperm which are faster but die quicker and then there are girl sperm which live longer but are slower. Now the theory is if one has sex the day of ovulation then there are higher odds the baby will be a boy. But if a couple have sex a couple of days prior to ovulation then the odds are in favor of a girl baby. This isnt set in stone....in other words one can have sex on the day of ovulation and still have a girl. It all comes down to what sperm gets there first.

I've also heard that a woman being on top during sex produces more boy babies because the "boy sperm" is faster. Probably an old wifes tale though.
