    Hello madam....unfortunately there is no exact science there.it's purely a game of chance...the shettles methods advices sex as close to ovulation as possible on the premise that the male sperm is a faster swimmer and he also encourages deeper penetration so that the faster male sperms who are better swimmers get there first.well,these are all assumptions and doesn't guarantee a male child...there are more expensive IVF methods which gives you a much more higher chances than shettles method can give you.

    Please Dr how can I track my ovulation for dis month, my menstrual circle used to be 28days but November was on 6th, December was also on d 6th while dis January is 8th, so which day is likely to be my ovulation.

    Hello typically,women ovulate about 2weeks before their next menses..your last cycle was 33 and the one before that was 30...we will just have to assume you ovulate somewhere between day 15 and day 20 of your next cycle based on these new cycle lengths.If it were every 28days like before,then we know you will likely ovulate on day 14.it's not that straight forward.now you just have to take your chances and have sex from around day 14 through to day 20...it's hard enough sometimes having sex to have a baby,let alone timing it to have a male or female child.

    hi...It's me again.like I said last time, based on the cycle lengths you gave me last time,you will ovulate somewhere between day 14 and day 20'.....That's January 22 to 28..most likely January 24..please note that ,because your cycle has not been perfectly steady over the last few months,I can't give you an EXACT date.you can also buy an ovulation test kit and follow it's instructions.

    Gud evening Dr, plz wht is d treatment for chronic bedwetting for 13year old girl
    Dr. Adedayo A answered:

    Good evening madam...bedwetting can be difficult to treat sometimes and most children outgrow it.There's no single approach to treating bedwetting that works for everybody, but in most cases the recommended plan is to first try a combination of measures yourself. 1.reduce fluid intake to about 1400 to 2200mls daily. 2.regular toilet breaks during the day and just before bed. 3.reward good behaviour like those above and dont punish bedwetting cos its not his fault. 4.bedwetting alarm....special alarm with a urine sensor. If all these don't work,then he may need drugs called desmopressin,imipramine only prescribed by a doctor. I can't do that here.
