Correlation with TRT (with or without HCG) and Conceiving Daughters?

I’ve been on trt + hcg for over a year now. Best decision of my life. However the more i look at men i suspect to be on trt or have used lots of gear in the past, the more i see that they only conceive daughters. Or at least the vast majority of their offspring is female. Whether it be in weight lifting, baseball or mma. Am i looking too deeply i to this or has anyone else noticed this correlation ?

Of course having a child of any sex is a blessing in itself. Life is precious.

My question to anyone who is reading that has conceived during TRT, did you have a boy or girl?

Also has anyone else noticed this

Hoping this thread catches on.

So higher sperm counts are correlated to boys and lower sperm counts with girls. Can we make an inference therefore that TRT results in lower counts, and therefore a higher propensity to father girls? Its certainly backed up with what you are seeing, and something I have thought of deeply myself.

That’s pretty interesting if so. I’ll read the details later

Tfan866 thanks for that article. There does seem to be a correlation between high sperm count and having fathered a boy. I wonder if because “we” are on trt we are basically bound to only father daughters. Although I dont mind, i would love to have a 50/50 shot at fathering a boy. I could list the names of the bodybuilders, baseball players, fighters etc that I have googled searched, and time after time they seem to only father daughters. Some in their younger years did father a boy, but it seems to me that the time they fathered a boy was before the usage of steroids or trt. I hope that we are not doomed to only have a child of one sex.

Wondering if I should start a new thread asking the guys on here whether they fathered children on trt and have a poll with numbers showing whether the child was a boy or a girl.

I have several friends that were on TRT for a while and conceived on it. They have an equal number of boys and girls collectively. Two of them just had kids last year with one having a boy and the other a girl.

Thank you dextermorgan for the input

Before being on TRT we conceived a boy. When we try again I’ll let you know lol. On HCG and try and will be when we start trying again.
