How to Conceive a Girl Using the Chinese Calendar Method

Did you know that you can increase your chances of conceiving a girl by scheduling your sexual intercourse?

The simplest timing strategy is the Chinese Calendar method, which uses a table to indicate when you ought to make love for having a daughter. Read this article to discover how to properly use this Gender Predictor Calendar.

A Natural Strategy – a Timing One

You should know that this method of increasing the chances of conceiving a baby with the preferred gender is a natural one. On this blog I also published articles focused on the other natural techniques of gender predetermination:

Just like the Shettles Method mentioned above, the Chinese Gender Calendar Method is also a timing strategy, because it schedules the sexual intercourse – namely, it tells when you ought to make love for increasing your likelihood of getting pregnant with a girl or boy, as you prefer. But, unlike the Shettles Method, which has some scientific explanations (which are, however, pretty contested), the Chinese Method is based on a legend and on astrology, and it has no scientific support. You can read more about this legendary strategy and its accuracy in my other posts on this blog.

Before going into details about how you can use this ancient strategy, let’s make an idea about its essence: the Chinese Gender Chart.

A Table with Chinese Lunar Meaning

How to Conceive a Girl Using the Chinese Calendar Method

So, you want to enhance your likelihood of getting pregnant with a daughter, right? And you are curious how you could do this using the legendary Chinese strategy, aren’t you?

Well, this ancient technique of gender predetermination is based on an interesting tool, which, if you know how to use, you’ll discover that utilizing the Chinese Calendar Method is actually a piece of cake.

In this article I teach you how to use this tool, which is, in fact, just a table, with rows and columns. But there is a small problem with this table: it can’t be understood by everyone. Why? Well, that’s because its dates are not common; I mean they are not Gregorian, like we all identify the time in the Western part of the world.

Instead, the dates displayed in this interesting table refer to the Chinese lunar calendar, the civil calendar that is still used nowadays in China, but only for traditional purposes, like determining the days which are favorable to moving, getting married, decorating your house, meeting friends, etc.

So, this famous table has rows and columns, namely horizontal lines and vertical lines, respectively. The columns indicate months, while the rows indicate ages. But not any kind of months and ages! It’s essential to be aware that the lines of this ancient table refer to the lunar months and lunar ages, which differ from the common months and ages used in most of the world, especially in the Western regions.

3 Ways of Using the Chinese Method of Sex Predetermination

Now, regardless of whether you’re aiming for a boy or if you’re trying to figure out how to conceive a girl, Chinese Calendar Method of gender predetermination can be used in only three manners:

  1. Either you employ a chart that is not Gregorian (Western, common) translated, namely, that doesn’t include the Gregorian (Western, common) dates that correspond to the lunar months and lunar ages. In such a situation, you would have to calculate your lunar age and search the Gregorian periods that correspond to the lunar months which are indicated by the famous chart to be the ones in which you are more likely to get pregnant with a baby of the gender you want.
  2. Either you use a chart that is translated in common (Gregorian , Western) dates, which means that the table you use contains, in addition to the lunar months and lunar ages, the common (Western, Gregorian) dates that correspond to these lunar things.
  3. Or you simply use a Chinese Gender Calculator, which is a program that determines the Gregorian periods that are favorable to conceiving a girl or a boy, depending on the values you introduce in that calculator.

I decided to present the three ways of using this method in descending order of difficulty. To be more precise, the first one is the most difficult one, while the last one is the simplest and quickest one. But I strongly recommend you to read the description of each of these ways, because they all have benefits and drawbacks. And, knowing the pluses and minuses of each way, you can better choose the manner in which you will use this famous strategy.

So, you have only three options when it comes to using this legendary method of gender predetermination. But this doesn’t mean that you must use it in only one manner, no! You can use even all the three manners mentioned above and detailed below. In fact, employing this well-known table in all the three ways pointed out in this article increases your chances of using correctly this ancient technique of enhancing your chances of conceiving the baby you want – either a daughter or a son.

Same Chart Is Used for Gender Prediction

Be aware that the same legendary chart is used not only for gender predetermination (namely, influencing the sex of a future baby), but also for gender prediction – namely, guessing the fetal sex (the gender of a conceived, but unborn yet baby, carried by a pregnant woman); this is why this ancient table is also know as the Chinese Gender Predictor. In this article I talk only about the three manners of using this famous table as a tool for gender predetermination. There are, of course, other three similar modalities of employing this chart for gender prediction, but I didn’t cover them in this post.

So, the three manners described below use the legendary table as a tool for gender predetermination, not prediction. To put it more accurately, the three modalities below show you how to conceive a girl using the Chinese Calendar Method.

Approach #1:   Make All Calculations

If you use a chart that is not Gregorian translated, namely which doesn’t contain the common dates that correspond to the Chinese lunar months and to the Chinese lunar ages mentioned in the table, you must compute your lunar age and discover the Gregorian periods which correspond to the lunar months that you identify in the table.

In this section I teach you how to calculate your lunar age, which is different from the common (Gregorian, Western) age that we all compute in most of the world. The Gregorian periods corresponding to the lunar months of any year are published on various websites on the Internet and I published in this post the common periods for the lunar months of 2016.

Here’s the famous chart, which is also called “Chinese Pregnancy Calendar”:

As you can see in the table above, the columns – vertical lines – indicate the twelve lunar months, while the rows – horizontal lines – correspond to the lunar ages from 18 to 45.

                Steps

Here are the steps you ought to follow in order to use this legendary table for increasing the probability of conceiving a daughter:

  1. Decide on the year in which you intend to conceive a girl.
  2. Determine your lunar age in the year of the intended conception, by adding one to the difference between the year of the planned conception and the year of your birth.
  3. Identify the row, namely horizontal line, which is labelled with your lunar age at conception.
  4. On this row, identify the cells labelled with “G”, namely “girl”.
  5. For each of these cells, look at the top of their columns (vertical lines) and read the numbers of the lunar months that are displayed there.
  6. For each of these lunar months and for the year of intended conception (decided at the first step), determine the common – Western, Gregorian – dates when these lunar months begin and end.

These Gregorian dates actually define the time intervals in which, according to this legendary method, you are more likely to get pregnant with a daughter.

You can quickly find these Gregorian dates on various webpages on the Internet. I included the Gregorian dates for the year 2016 later in this article.

                Rules for Calculating the Lunar Age

The simple formula that I mentioned at the second step above is deduced from the two rules that define the special age called “Chinese lunar age”:

  1. From the birth moment to the end of the lunar year of birth, the lunar age of a person is one lunar year.
  2. Each Chinese Lunar New Year adds one lunar year to the lunar age of every person.

                Things Needed

To sum up, in order to apply this legendary method of gender predetermination, we need to know, about the future mother, only these three things:

  1. the day when she was born;
  2. the gender of the baby she wants, namely whether she prefers a girl or a boy;
  3. the year during which she intends to get pregnant with the preferred baby.

In addition to these three items – mother’s birthdate, preferred gender for baby and year of intended conception –, we also need:

  1. obviously, the Chinese Birth Chart – which I displayed above;
  2. the common (Gregorian, Western) dates when the lunar months of the year of planned conception begin and end.

These Gregorian dates can be found on the Internet. I included below the common dates for the lunar year that corresponds to the common year 2016:

  • 1st lunar month: 8 February 2016 – 8 March 2016;
  • 2nd lunar month: 9 March 2016 – 6 April 2016;
  • 3rd lunar month: 7 April 2016 – 6 May 2016;
  • 4th lunar month: 7 May 2016 – 4 June 2016;
  • 5th lunar month: 5 June 2016 – 3 July 2016;
  • 6th lunar month: 4 July 2016 – 2 August 2016;
  • 7th lunar month: 3 August 2016 – 31 August 2016;
  • 8th lunar month: 1 September 2016 – 30 September 2016;
  • 9th lunar month: 1 October 2016 – 30 October 2016;
  • 10th lunar month: 31 October 2016 – 28 November 2016;
  • 11th lunar month: 29 November 2016 – 28 December 2016;
  • 12th lunar month: 29 December 2016 – 27 January 2017.

                Concrete Example: Born on 27 July 1992, Wants Girl in 2016

Let’s see now how the six steps mentioned earlier in this article can be applied to a concrete example, through which we’ll also discover how to express the lunar months in common (Gregorian, Western) months.

As I previously told you, in order to employ this legendary method of gender predetermination, we need to know three things about the future mother: her date of birth, the gender she prefers for her future baby and the year when she plans to conceive that baby. Since now we are in 2016 and both this article and this blog are focused on conceiving girls, we’ll suppose she wants to conceive a daughter in 2016.

So, let’s consider the case of a woman who is born on 27 July 1992 and who wants to get pregnant with a girl in 2016. This means we just covered the first step: we decided on the year of planned conception. It’s time now to move on to the next step: computing her lunar age during the year of the planned conception. Let’s apply that formula! We must subtract 1992 from 2016 and add one to the difference; we get 25. So, that woman has 25 lunar years in the lunar year that corresponds to the common (Western, Gregorian) year 2016.

There is an essential remark that I must make: that woman is 25 lunar years old only during the lunar year that corresponds to the common year 2016, namely only from 8 February 2016 to 27 January 2017. These two common dates can be found on various websites on the Internet; on 8 February 2016 there was the Chinese Lunar New Year for 2016, and on 28 January 2017 there will be the Chinese Lunar New Year for 2017. So, that woman was only 24 lunar years old before 8 February 2016 – more correctly, in the lunar year that corresponds to the common year 2015 – and she will have a lunar age of 26 lunar years after 27 January 2017, or, more correctly, during the lunar year corresponding to the common year 2017.

Let’s return to our calculations. After having computed the lunar age of that woman in the year of the planned conception, we have reached the third step, in which we must identify the horizontal line that is labelled with the lunar age at conception that we obtained above: 25. You see that row, don’t you? Okay, it’s time now to get to the fourth step: we must identify, on this row, the cells which are labelled with “G”, since we supposed that woman wonders how to conceive a girl. Chinese Calendar Baby Chart contains these values on the row marked with “25”, in this order: “G B G B G B G B G B B B”. So, there are five cells marked with “G”, on the first, third, fifth, seventh and ninth columns.

Since we have completed the fourth step, we must perform now the fifth step, in which, for each of the “G”-cells identified above, we have to look at the top of their columns (vertical lines) and read the number of the lunar months displayed there. You certainly see that the first “G”-cell is on a column marked with “1st” (lunar month), the second “G”-cell is on a column labelled with “3rd”, the third “G”-cell is on the column identified as “5th”, the fourth “G”-cell is on the column marked with “7th” and, finally, the fifth “G”-cell (the last one on that row) lies on the column labelled with “9th”.

Here’s what we have discovered so far: as claimed by this legendary method of gender predetermination, a woman born on 27 July 2016 has higher chances to get pregnant with a girl in the lunar year corresponding to the common year 2016 (namely in the period 8 February 2016 – 27 January 2017), if she makes love in the periods defined by these Chinese lunar months of this lunar year: 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th. But what precisely are these periods? When do these lunar months of 2016 begin and end? What are the common – Gregorian , Western – dates that correspond to these lunar months?

We find answers to these questions by simply following the final – namely, sixth – step described earlier in this post. To be more precise, for each of the lunar months identified at the previous step, we must find out the Gregorian dates of beginning and ending. On the Internet there are numerous webpages which display the common dates corresponding to the Chinese lunar dates. But I also included, earlier in this post, a list with all the Western dates when the lunar months for 2016 begin and end.

                Benefits

Why would you prefer to follow the first approach of using the Chinese Gender Calendar method of gender predetermination, namely calculate your lunar age at conception and search Gregorian dates for lunar months?

Well, I think that the greatest advantage of this first modality consists in its reliability. To put it more accurately, only when you perform all these necessary tasks (compute, search), without making any mistake, you can be sure that you use correctly this technique. Just make sure you visit trustworthy websites.

Another benefit of making all calculations is that you better understand the rules of the underlying calendar of this legendary strategy of gender predetermination – the Chinese lunar calendar. When used in addition to the other approaches (translated chart and calculator), this first approach also allows you to check whether that Chinese Birth Chart is correctly translated or if that calculator works fine.

                Drawbacks

Obviously, this first manner of employing this method is pretty time-consuming. And it might also seem relatively complicated, if you don’t know anything about this special calendar, still used nowadays in China, but only for traditional purposes.

Approach #2:   Use a Translated Chart

A second manner of using this famous method of gender predetermination consists in using a chart that is Gregorian translated for the year in which you intend to conceive a baby girl, namely, which contains not only the lunar months and lunar ages, but also the common – namely Western, Gregorian – dates:

  1. when these lunar months, corresponding to that year, begin and end;
  2. which define the time intervals in which a woman can be born so that she has the specified lunar age in the lunar year that corresponds to the year for which the chart is translated.

It’s essential to be aware that this chart can be Gregorian translated only for a certain year. I included below the famous chart translated for the year 2016. This means that this chart shows the time periods in which you are more likely to conceive the baby you want – daughter or son, in the lunar year that corresponds to the year 2016, lunar year that lasts from 8 February 2016 to 27 January 2017.

If you intend to get pregnant in another period than the one that I have just mentioned, you have to use a chart that is translated for the lunar year that includes that period. So, here’s the Chinese Baby Gender Chart for 2016:

                Steps

Here are the steps of this second manner of using the legendary strategy of gender predetermination for increasing your likelihood of conceiving a daughter:

  1. Decide on the year in which you intend to get pregnant with a girl.
  2. Find a chart which is translated for that year of intended conception.
  3. On the left side of such a chart, identify the interval which contains your date of birth.
  4. On the row (horizontal line) of the interval you found at previous step, identify all the cells labelled with “G”, namely “girl”.
  5. For each of these “G”-cells, read the time intervals displayed at the top of their columns (vertical lines). These time intervals are the periods in which you should make love because, according to the Chinese Baby Calendar method, you are more likely to conceive a daughter.

                Things Needed

For this second approach, you need to know – or decide on – the following things:

  • the year in which you would like to conceive;
  • the gender of the baby you want;
  • your date of birth.

In addition to the three things above – year of intended conception, preferred gender and birthdate –, you also need:

4)   a chart that is Gregorian translated for the year in which you intend to conceive.

                Benefits

This second modality of using the legendary method is, obviously, much simpler to understand and apply than the first manner, and even much quicker.

                Drawbacks

The major disadvantage of this approach is that the Gender Chart you use might be incorrectly Gregorian translated. Another drawback is that this modality requires you to use the chart mechanically, somehow without thinking – I mean, without knowing too much about the underlying lunar calendar or about the lunar age.

Approach #3:   Use a Chinese Baby Calculator

We finally reached the quickest and simplest manner of using the legendary method of gender predetermination: the use of a Chinese Gender Calculator, which is a program, displayed as a form, with some textboxes in which you must introduce your date of birth, the year in which you would like to conceive and, of course, the gender of the baby you want. After filling in all the required fields, this program provides the periods in the chosen year when you have higher chances to get pregnant with a girl or a boy, depending on your option.

                Steps

In general, these are the steps you need to perform when using this third approach:

  1. Decide on the year during which you intend to conceive the desired baby.
  2. Decide on the gender you prefer for your future baby.
  3. Find a reliable gender calculator.
  4. In the form that is displayed by that calculator, introduce all the required information: year of planned conception, birthdate, preferred gender.
  5. Click on the button which generates the results – the periods that are favorable to conceiving the desired baby. This button may be labelled “Compute” or “Calculate” or “Find out periods”, etc.

The periods that will be displayed should be the ones indicated by this ancient method, periods recommended for making love.

                Things Needed

Just like for the other two modalities of using the Chinese Calendar Method for conceiving a girl or a boy, you need to know your birthdate, the gender you prefer and the year of planned conception. Unlike the other two modalities, you don’t need the legendary chart, but the program that replaces the chart, which calculates all you need. Such a program is available on several websites on the Internet, but, when choosing this calculator, make sure it is a reliable one, in the sense that it uses the right chart and it computes correctly.

                Benefits

The quickness and the simplicity are by far the major advantages of this approach.

                Drawbacks

It might be difficult to discover a reliable calculator. Moreover, just like in the case of the second manner – the one with the translated chart –, such a program requires a mechanical use of the legendary method of gender predetermination, which excludes the necessity of understanding the way this method works and some aspects of the Chinese lunar calendar and of the lunar age.

Conclusion

If you are wondering how to conceive a girl using the Chinese Calendar Method, I think this article contains all you need to know about the modalities in which you can employ this legendary strategy of gender predetermination. Based on the pros and cons of each of the three manners, I hope you will choose the right approach(es).

    • Tiffany Moore says:

      Hi Tanya,

      Can you give me some examples? From my research, most of the Chinese Gender Charts are wrong because they incorrectly suggest the Gregorian months (January, February, etc.) and the Gregorian ages, ignoring the Chinese lunar (or, more correctly, lunisolar) meanings for the months and ages

      But if you give me some links/examples, I could give you a better answer.

      Usually, this is the number 1 mistake, people don’t convert it to Gregorian Months
