Chinese Conception Chart, Calendar and Calculator

What are the Chinese conception chart, calendar and calculator? Can I use the Chinese conception chart for twins and baby’s gender? Discover the Chinese conception chart and its accuracy.

The Chinese have a civilization, which dates back to the period of the ancient Egyptian pyramids. No wonder they were behind The Great Wall of China and other technological wonders that do not fail to awe and baffle many even today. One of their lesser-known inventions is the Chinese conception chart.

The exact age of the chart -like many things in the Chinese community remains a mystery, but it is believed to have been found about 700 years ago in a tomb somewhere in what was then the Chinese empire during the reign of the Qing (pronounced ‘ching’) dynasty.

True to the Chinese appetite for stratagem, it was revealed to the world in 1975 during their cultural revolution. Even today, many people all over the world use it to predict the gender of their unborn babies. There are many who attest to its accuracy. Unfortunately, no studies can ascertain this claim. Many use it for fun. It is available on display at the Beijing Institute of Science.

Whatever your attitude towards the Chinese chart is, you have to admit that if anyone is an expert on the delicate intricacies of procreation it is probably the Chinese. After all, they make a significant portion of the human population. However, a little caution is healthy and I cannot claim with all certainty that it works. That will be up to you to decide.

Chinese conception chart for twins

How the Chinese conception chart for twins works makes a very interesting read. First, to use it you must know that the Chinese Lunar calendar is what is used instead of the usual Gregorian calendar. Therefore, you have to convert the number of years into the Chinese system. It is a Chinese conception calendar after all.

One year is added to the age you could be having right now. For example, if you are 23 years old right according to Chinese calendar, you are at least 24 or possibly 25. This is because the Chinese count the nine months spent in the womb towards the baby’s age, unlike in the West. When a baby is born is therefore born, he or she is already 1 year old according to the Chinese lunar calendar. Paradoxically, their government does not allow a single family to have more than one child.

Once you have added one year to your age, determine the month of conception or the month you wish to conceive as the case might be. Then use the table to see the expected sex of the newborn baby. It can also be used in reverse. Pick the ideal gender of the baby then work backwards to your age then determine the date of conception. It is quite fun.

However, the Chinese conception chart for twins struggles to explain other situations such as the occurrence of mixed gender twins and other multiple conceptions. Although the statistics vary by ethnicity and location, around 1 percent of births are multiple births. The Chinese pregnancy calendar does not provide a method to predict mixed gender or multiple conceptions in these cases. You could nevertheless take a leap of faith it does not hurt. The blessing of a newborn outweighs any outcome.

 Chinese Conception Calendar

The table above shows the Chinese conception calendar. The numbers on the right indicate the age of a woman looking forward to conceiving. The age shows a direct relationship with the gender of the new born depending on the month of conception. For example, at the age of 34 if I want to conceive in November next year, I will be 36 according to the Chinese conception calendar, and I will conceive a baby girl.

 

Modern Science vs. the Chinese Conception Calendar

The ancient Chinese probably knew something that we have only come to rediscover hundreds, perhaps thousands of years later. That is, the timing of conception often can determine the gender of the unborn.

At conception, gender is determined by chromosome characteristics. The egg carries an X chromosome while the sperm can carry an X or a Y chromosome. If the sperm carrying an X chromosome fertilizes the egg, the woman trying to get pregnant, conceives a girl. If the sperm carrying a Y chromosome fertilizes the egg, then she conceives a boy instead.

Studies indicate that the sperm with the female chromosome have a longer life span than the male sperm. However, the male sperm appear to have a higher mobility. Sperm mobility is measured in two ways, percentage of sperm showing any kind of movement, and the quality of the swimming, which is called the forward progression. Poor mobility means the sperm is a poor swimmer and will not get a chance to fertilize an egg.

Though only theoretical, it is believed that if intercourse takes place closer to ovulation, then the probability is greater that the child will be male, due to the high forward progression and the decreased life span of the sperm. The sperm with the female chromosome have a longer life span than the male sperm, but exhibit decreased mobility. Therefore, intercourse that takes place before ovulation increases the probability of conception of a girl.

When it comes to conception, the age of the woman also matters. Therefore, the Chinese were not only right in discovering that the timing and age affects the gender of the unborn. In fact, there are certain modern clinics that claim to have perfected the Chinese art of conception with very high accuracy.

Chinese Conception Chart Calculator

You can easily get the gender of your unborn child using a Chinese conception chart calculator. By feeding your date of birth and the month in which you wish to conceive, you get the expected results for your unborn baby. With the Chinese conception chart calculator, you do not have to wonder whether to add a year or nine months to your current age, the calculator does it for you correctly and fast.

Chinese Conception Gender Chart

The Chinese conception gender chart is a perfect tool for predicting the sex of a baby. A mother to be can decide when she wants to conceive and what gender her baby should be. This helps her prepare psychologically for the gender she desires.

However, should the result turn otherwise, it can be devastating for some who did not want a certain gender. One just has to hope she is lucky enough to conceive the boy or girl she desires since the Chinese people believe in good luck.

Ancient Chinese Conception Chart Accuracy

If it is true then there are clearly defined strategies for women who want to conceive a boy or girl. For a boy, a mother’s age of 18 or 20 and attempts to conceive during the months from April onwards provides a 94% probability for conceiving a boy. Similarly, anyone wishing for a girl should concentrate their efforts when they are 21 and 22.

Attempts from March onwards at this age should result in 85% probability of conceiving a girl. It is a bit unfair for those who are older There are still great opportunities to conceive a boy at ages 30 and 31, or a girl at 36 and 37.

  • The Chinese conception chart accuracy is faulty because there are no reports of 19-year-olds conceiving only boys.

There are no records of studies giving significance to the number of conceptions of a particular gender in relation to the Chinese lunar month of conception
