Is it true that having sex right before ovulation will increase my chances of having a girl?

In brief: Not exactly

Male sperm swim faster but die off faster, female sperm swim slower but live longer. The closer you are to ovulation, the more likely you will have a boy.
A girl more likely when you miss exact ovulation.
