Would you like to understand how to use the Chinese Calendar 2017 or 2018 to predict the gender of your baby?
Yes? Perfect. You’re in the right place.
I created this blog because I wanted to share with you everything I’ve learned in the past years about how to properly use the Chinese Gender Predictor to increase the chances of conceiving a baby boy or a baby girl.
This is a pretty long article, but I assure you this is one of the most complete articles about the Chinese Baby Calendar you’ll ever find available online.
This is another big reason that motivated me to create this blog: I wanted to offer you the correct version of the Chinese Table, show you how to use it and answer the questions that you might have about it, like I did when I first started researching about this topic.
If you go through this article and through the articles posted on this website, you will also discover the correct version of this “famous ancient chart”, as well as the correct ways of using it. By doing so, you’ll discover:
- the most likely sex of an unborn baby;
- the precise time intervals in which a woman has more chances to get pregnant with a child of the desired gender than to get pregnant with a baby of the unwanted gender.
However, after all, it is not so important whether the tables you use are the right ones or not, because it seems that the methods based on this table, called sometimes Chinese Birth Calendar, are appropriate only for spending your time in a funny way, since they lack scientific proof and some facts contradict these tables’ ability to guess or predict an offspring’s gender.

Chinese Gender Chart for 2016
Chinese Gender Chart is another name of the famous ancient tool traditionally used for sex prediction and predetermination. Let’s analyze a little bit this name. It’s called a “chart” because it is just a simple table. It has 12 columns and 28 rows, 12 x 28 cells and, of course, the heads of these columns and rows. Its name contains the word “gender” because its cells indicate one of the two values of the human gender: male or female. The value of any cell is either “boy” or “girl”. These values can be represented in the table in different ways:
- with their initial letters, “B” and “G”;
- with colors; usually, pink is for girl and blue is for boy;
- with various images, like: head of a baby girl and of a baby boy, the two gender symbols, etc.
Chinese Lunar Meanings
The word “Chinese” is present in almost any name of the famous legendary chart, sometimes referred to as Chinese Baby Predictor, because of four reasons:
- It has been traditionally used in China for gender prediction and selection; you’ll see later in this article what this means.
- It’s based on a Chinese legend that seems to date from the 13th century.
- It’s based on a Chinese lunar (or, more correctly, lunisolar) calendar, the Han calendar, which differs a lot from the calendar that is mostly used in the world, especially in its Western part – the Gregorian calendar.
- It exclusively refers to Chinese lunar (more correctly, lunisolar) months and to Chinese lunar ages – its columns and rows, respectively. The lunar months and ages differ pretty much from the Gregorian ones.
It’s called sometimes “Birth Chart” because it is based on mother’s birth moment, which determines mother’s Chinese lunar age at conception, which is indicated by one of the rows. This well-known table is also named “Pregnancy Calendar” due to the fact that it is based on baby’s conception moment (namely, on the moment when mother got or will get pregnant with that baby), which determines baby’s Chinese lunar month of conception, which is indicated by one of the columns.
The 2 Functions of the Calendar: Prediction & Predetermination
Another well-known name of the famous table is this: “Chinese Gender Predictor“. It is called so because it is claimed to be able to predict the more likely gender of a fetus. In other words, it is thought to be able to guess if a baby that was conceived but it is not born yet, is a girl or a boy. To be more precise, this chart reveals the most probable sex of a fetus. The name “Chinese Pregnancy Calendar” attributed to this table indicates the other function of this chart, apart from the predictive one: its pretended ability to predetermine the sex of a child. To put it more accurately, this simple table is thought to be able to tell when a woman should get pregnant for increasing her odds of conceiving a baby that has an intended gender: male or female. So, it reveals when she ought to make love so that she conceives a boy or a girl, depending on the preference. Its name’s word “calendar” comes from the fact that this chart is based on and it refers exclusively to the Chinese lunar calendar.
To Sum Up
More exactly, this website provides a full description of the well-known legendary Chinese table that is claimed to be able to do these two important things related to a baby’s gender:
- predict it, and
- predetermine it,
by using only two pieces of information:
- Chinese lunar age of mother at conception, or, when the table is Gregorian explained, just the mother’s birth moment, and
- either the Chinese lunar month of baby’s conception (or, when the table is Gregorian explained, just the baby’s conception moment) or baby’s desired gender.
Practically speaking, if you know about a woman who got pregnant but she hasn’t yet given birth to her child, and if you know when that woman was born and the moment when she conceived her baby, you could guess whether her fetus is a boy or a girl by simply looking in this simple table, called sometimes Chinese Calendar Gender. What is interesting about this simple table is that you can use it not only for guessing the sex of a fetus, but also for controlling it. More precisely, if you know the birth moment of a woman and if you have decided on the desired gender for her offspring, this chart is believed to let you easily and quickly identify the time periods in which she should make love, for getting pregnant with the aiming descendant: either a girl or a boy.
Gender Selection & Prediction
There are two concepts you ought to know, when it comes to the legendary table used as a baby gender calculator:
- “sex prediction”, which refers to the attempt of guessing the sex of an unborn baby;
- “sex selection”, which refers to the attempt of predetermining the sex of a future being.
It’s important to know that there are also scientific methods of both gender selection and prediction which, unlike the ones based on the legendary chart, are really trustworthy and effective, since they are discovered, proved and supported by scientists from all over the world.
About the Calendar Accuracy
One of the first questions you should ask yourself about any strategy of gender prediction or predetermination is the one referring to its effectiveness: “Will this method work?” Well, when this question relates to any technique based on the ancient Chinese table, the answer isn’t very good. To be more precise, you shouldn’t rely too much on any such chart, neither when aiming for a baby of a certain sex, nor when trying to guess the gender of an unborn child, because of several essential reasons:
- Neither this old chart, nor the methods of sex prediction and selection based on it are scientifically demonstrated. However, when it comes to the empirical evidence, several websites claim that the births in some hospitals and clinics confirm an accuracy of over 80% for the strategies of gender selection and prediction, centered on the ancient table.
- The effectiveness of the 2017 Chinese Baby Predictor Chart is contradicted by two simple situations, which occur pretty often, all over the world: twins with different genders conceived by the same woman at the same time, and babies with distinct sexes conceived in the same Chinese lunar month by women with the same Chinese lunar age at the moment of conception.
- It seems that this legendary chart has astrological origins, because it would represent the map of sky at the date and time of the baby’s conception, realized using a map of the Universe that is computed for the exact time and location of the birth of that baby, according to the Wikipedia pages dedicated to the Conception Chart and Birth Chart.
Due to the facts pointed out above, the old table and its techniques of gender selection and prediction are appropriate only for having fun.
Most Likely & More Likely
Anyway, it’s essential to understand that this legendary astrological table and its methods don’t guarantee neither the fetal sex, nor the periods to conceive a baby of the desired gender. They just present elements with high probabilities:
- the most likely gender of a fetus carried by a pregnant woman;
- the time periods when a woman is more likely to conceive a girl or a boy.
High probabilities are those greater than 50%, not necessarily those of 100%. So, these methods offer the gender and the periods with the highest chances.
Mistakes Found on Other Websites
Many Internet websites that provide information about the Chinese Gender Predictor Chart for 2018 and about the strategies based on it are full of mistakes regarding:
- the meanings of the columns and rows of the famous chart; more precisely, they incorrectly suggest the Gregorian months (January, February, etc.) and the Gregorian ages, ignoring the Chinese lunar (or, more correctly, lunisolar) meanings for the months and ages;
- the descriptions of the manners of interpreting this table.
