LAUGHING: FUN WAY TO GET PREGNANT, REALLY!

Laughing Can Help Fertility

Much has been written about the healing power of laughter and it can be an important factor in changing your mindset and lowering your resistance.  Laughter can lower your blood pressure, reduce stress (and stress hormones), increase endorphins (natural painkillers) and strengthen the immune system.    Best of all it’s free and fun! 

Has laughter ever been studied in regards to fertility? There was actually a study done in Israel on women undergoing IVF.   Half of them were entertained by a clown for about 15 minutes after the embryos were transferred into their wombs.  The routine included jokes, tricks, and magic and was performed on a one-to-one basis.  The study sample included 219 patients (110 in the intervention group and 109 in the control group). There were no significant differences between the groups regarding age. The pregnancy rate in the intervention group was 36.4%, compared with 20.2% in the control group. Researchers thought “laughter may have an effect on the embryo-uterine interplay through neuroendocrine pathways or non-ovarian stress reduction, augmenting uterine receptivity”.[1]

Although this study was done on women undergoing IVF, I can’t help but believe that the beneficial effect of laughter can help women who are trying to conceive naturally too.
How can you laugh at a time like this?  You just have to figure out what tickles your funny bone.  For me, watching the television show where people send in their silly home videos was a guaranteed laugh.  Sometimes I’d have tears running down my face I would laugh so hard.  Try it!  I didn’t always feel like laughing, but I’d start watching and I couldn’t contain myself!  Many cable channels play the reruns at all hours and you can find almost anything online, so it’s pretty easy to find at least one episode per day.  It’s those belly laughs that make you cry that are especially healing and cathartic.
