Our expert says:
The chances of you and your husband having a boy the next time around is about 50%. There is nothing specific you can do to ensure it is a boy under natural circumstances. The only way you can be 100% sure of getting a boy is the use of In-Vitro Fertilization and assessing the embryos by a procedure called PGD before implantation of the embryos. This procedure is normally done for medically reasons to determine sex-linked disorders. Using this procedure for gender selection has some moral and ethical issues that need to be dealt with first.
