Not specificly: The present tech is limited to random fertilization during IVF and selecting the gender after the embryo is forming.

Is it possible to increase height for a 17 year old male because there are documents that suggest it's possible. Is there exercises that might help?
No: If your growth plates are no longer open, growth is over. Typically by the time a boy is 17, the growth plates are near complete fusion. There are no height enhancing exercises. If a 17 year old boy has delayed puberty there may be some growth potential left as the biological age would be younger than 17. ...Read more

Hope this helps! ...Read more

There is no special position, tea, day of the month or whatever else you heard that makes any difference.There are a lot of myths out there about gender selection & all work half the time. If you are not pregnant after a year of trying, consult with the OB or a fertility center. ...Read more
I had to have a c-section with my first child due to failure to progress, is there any hope for a vbac or is my body just not made to deliver a baby vaginally?
Check with OB: If you went through labor before your first, your OB must have thought you could have a regular delivery. Your health & status with subsequent pregnancies & the projected size of baby may allow a vbac, but i would only do so in a facility capable of immediately taking you to surgery if problems arose during your attempt. Many try & are successful.Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
