Curious to know the gender of your baby even before they arrive? Then this article is for you. There are many ways to know the gender of an unborn baby. The Chinese gender chart, also known as the Chinese gender calendar, is used by individuals to forecast a baby’s gender while he or she is still in the womb.

Some people use the chart as a reference when they are attempting to get pregnant in order to improve their odds of having a boy or a girl. In either case, using the chart might be entertaining if you or your partner want to establish a family or expand your family. So, before we get into how to use the Chinese birth chart, let’s understand what it is.

What is the Chinese Birth Chart?

The lunar age of the mother and the lunar month of conception are used in the Chinese gender chart to forecast the gender of a newborn. Some women utilise the chart to forecast whether they are bearing a boy or a girl. Before they get an ultrasound to determine the gender of their unborn child. Others, depending on their preferred gender, utilise the Chinese gender predictor chart as a planning tool. They aim to get pregnant during the months when the calendar predicts they will have a boy or a girl, based on their preferences.

How to use a Chinese Birth Chart?

The Chinese birth chart depicts gender predictions based on lunar dates. Due to this, you should use the lunar calendar (lunar age) to determine the pregnant person’s age rather than the Gregorian calendar. As a result of the differences between the two calendar systems, you are typically one to two years older according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

The chart divides into blue and pink boxes, with the months of the year listed at the top and a list of numbers running down the side, ranging from 18 to 45. The number column in the table denotes the mother’s age at the time of conception, and the months indicate the month of conception.

Steps to use the Chinese Birth Chart:-

      • Determine your lunar age at the time of the baby’s conception. For instance, even if you are only 34 years old according to the Western calendar, if your birthday is August 25, 1989, you would be 35 years old in the lunar year of February 2023.
      • Identify the lunar month in which your child was conceived.
      • To determine your lunar age, look at the Chinese gender chart and the numbers moving down the leftmost column.
      • Then, to determine the lunar month of conception, look at the numbers on the top row.
      • The gender of the child is predicted by the intersection of your lunar age and the lunar month of conception.
      • It’s a boy if the box is blue. If the box is pink, it means a girl.

Is the Chinese Birth Chart accurate?

The Chinese Birth Chart’s precision is in doubt. Some claim that it is more accurate than other ways of predicting gender. According to reports, it shows 70 per cent accuracy. Some claim that it is 90 per cent accurate. The Chinese Birth Chart has no scientific foundation. Hence, the highest accuracy we can provide is 50 per cent. Although expecting mothers have a desperate desire to confirm the gender of their unborn child. This practice has become increasingly popular with them. People prefer to attempt this procedure because it is simple.

History of Chinese Birth Chart

The history of the Chinese Gender Calendar Chart has been the subject of various myths. According to a narrative, an ancient royal tomb yielded the discovery of the chart, estimated to be approximately 700 years old. Another myth credits the unearthing of the map to the underground storage area of the Forbidden City during the Ching Dynasty. There are many more stories.

Although we did not have concrete evidence to support these stories. We view this chart as a humorous and speculative technique to determine the gender of your unborn child.


The Chinese gender Chart is an interesting way to know the gender of your unborn baby. But there is no evidence related to its accuracy. For accuracy, we recommend a medical checkup to determine the gender of your unborn baby. Ultimately, the joy of welcoming a new life into the world transcends gender predictions. The most important aspect is the health and happiness of the baby and family.
