How to use the Chinese Gender Chart?
Based on this ancient pregnancy chart, the gender of a baby is determined by only two factors, which are the mother’s age and the month when the baby conceived (see the chart below). But remember, both of them are based on the Chinese (lunar) calendar. If you have no idea of how to convert your age and the western calendar month into the Chinese (lunar) age and the Chinese (lunar) month, please use our Lunar Age Calculator for a quick conversion. If you need a fully automated Chinese Gender Chart for gender prediction, please visit this page. Or if you want to use the automated chart for gender selection, please click here.
Alternatively, you can use the Chinese Gender Chart (western calendar version) which we have already made the conversion for you from year 2005 to 2015.
The numbers down the left side of the CGC represents the mother’s age at the time she conceived the baby. The columns of the chart represent the month when the baby is conceived.
For gender prediction, follow across and down to where the month and age intersect, and you will find either a blue box for boy or a pink box for girl. For example, if a 24-year-old (lunar age) woman conceived on the first lunar month, her baby would be a boy and if a 28-year-old (lunar age) woman conceived on the 6th lunar month, her baby would be a girl.
For gender selection, pick the age when the mother plans to conceive. At the same row, choose to conceive at the months with blue boxes, if you want a boy. And conceive at the months with pink boxes, if you prefer a girl.
You may not agree that men play little part in determining the gender of babies, according to the chart, but recent medical studies do demonstrate that the sex of the baby is actually chosen by the female. See ‘Myth: Sex of the baby is chosen by the male; Reality: Sex of the baby is chosen by the female’.
