Decades ago some scientists had researched what might influence the sex ratio at birth. They documented the seasons and regions affect the sex ratio at birth. US National Center for Biotechnology Information published a study of The Association between Season of Pregnancy and Birth-Sex among Chinese in 2014. The statistic data is from 3051 Chinese children born in the Northeast regions of China during 2006 to 2008.

Now we can see that January, February, March, April and September have higher boy counts. The Chinese I-Ching has a theory to support this prediction. This probably is something to do with Chinese I-Ching Hexagrams. I-Ching states the natural phenomena of our universe, and then applies it on people, family and the nation relationships. The nature rule of the universe (Dao) is Yin and Yang. I-Ching uses the symbol of broken bar Chinese Yin as Yin and the solid bar Chinese Yang as Yang. Yin is female or cold. Yang is male or hot. One trigram has 3 bars and one hexagram has 6 bars. Yin-Yang and Hexagram can apply on the months. Each month has its own hexagram. December has the first Yang growing from the ground. January has two Yangs on the ground. February has three Yangs on the ground. March has four Yang bars and April has five Yang bars. Full six Yangs are in May. In June, Yang completely dies and Yin is born.

Yang is connected to the boy. The energy of Yang grows from December to May. The energy of Yin grows from June to November. The first Yang of December is too weak. The full Yang of May will die soon. The energy of Yang is growing strong from January to April. It turns out that the conception months in January, February, March and April are favorable to conceive a baby boy. Summer season is favorable to conceive a baby girl. The following chart is the relationship between boy counts and pregnant months.

Comparing this chart with the statistic sex ratio birth data chart, they are pretty close except August and September. We can say that Chinese Baby Gender Predictor Chart is somewhat accurate but not precise in China. But this doesn't mean Chinese Baby Gender Predictor Chart is accurate for other countries.

For women age under 30, the boy count is 75 and the girl count is 69. The ratio is 1.086. For women age over 29, the boy count is 89 and the girl count is 103. The ratio is 0.864. The sex ratio of statistic data for women younger than 30 is 1.083. The sex ratio of statistic data for of women older than 29 is 1.052. Both of data show younger women have better chance to conceive baby boys.

Use Zodiac-Lunar Months for Chinese Gender Predictor Chart

The Chinese Gender Predictor Chart has 12 months. Every three years Chinese Lunar Calendar needs extra lunar month in order to synchronize the cycle of the sun. When a Chinese lunar year has 13 months, we have difficulty to apply the leap month on Prediction Chart. If the I-Ching theory is behind the Chinese Gender Prediction Chart, then we should consider using Chinese Zodiac Month, instead of Chinese Lunar Months.

Therefore, we compromise the Chinese Zodiac Months with Chinese Lunar Months into new Zodiac-Lunar Months the following chart. The days of Zodiac-Lunar Months must in both of lunar month and its corresponding Zodiac month. We strongly recommend using Zodiac-Lunar Months for the Chinese Baby Gender Prediction Chart.
