- A newspaper in India has given its readers six tips for getting a son. Thus the daily Mangalam advised future mothers to sleep to the west and only on certain days to have sex when the sperm would be stronger.
But the BBC that the tips presented to scientists, says the strength of sperm does not affect sex determination. All suggestions are scientifically wrong and the probability of a girl or a boy is completely arbitrary and is generally known as determined by the presence of the Y chromosome in the sperm.
India is still a cultural preference for getting boys instead of girls. For example, there are abortions are becoming committed on the basis of the sex. In some cultures, the preference for sons is deeply rooted. Men are seen as the stronger sex and breadwinner.
