Can You Laugh Your Way to Love and Pregnancy?
Laughing can improve your general health and odds at successful IVF treatments. But did you know it could also help you out in the bedroom, too?
Is laughter truly the best medicine—specifically for couples trying to conceive? One recent study finds that laughter could improve the results of fertility treatments. Though more research is needed for conclusive results, it’s clear that a good belly laugh can provide a variety of general health benefits. From getting pregnant to falling in love, laughter pays dividends.
For couples undergoing IVF treatments, research says a little laughter is a small price to pay for the possibility of increased success in family planning. From relieving stress to lowering blood pressure and improved blood flow, creating upbeat environments with giggles and chuckles might do some good. “In addition, the Mayo Clinic cited instances of how a hearty laugh cheered up lagging moods, and strengthened the immune system,” according to an article in the Liberty Voice.
But did you know that laughing could also help in the traditional baby-making department? “In dating relationships, it has been shown that women who laugh are considered more attractive, and women generally seek men who have a lively sense of humor. Humor, although it hasn’t been proven in large-scale studies, has been recognized for its ability to enliven romantic relationships,” says the article on laughter.
The research also shows that the benefits of laughing are not connected to sincerity—”Laughter, whether fake or real, can de-stress and deflate worry, and naturally it can lighten the mood in the bedroom.” The article also likens the benefits of laughter with orgasm, stating that perhaps faking isn’t such a bad idea.
Stress can be the culprit to many health factors for couples trying to conceive, and while not proven totally effective, laughter can be a worthwhile remedy. The general health benefits aside, being purposeful in relieving stress and being happy is worthy of the effort.
Whether scientifically proven or not—even if it sounds a bit foolish to fake laughter and orgasms—why not give the experiment a try in your own relationship? Like the old saying goes, sometimes you have to fake it till you make it. If being deliberate in creating a life full of joy, laughter (even the occasional orgasm) can improve your health, then why not?
