Add Laughter to Your Fertility Protocol

In a recent blog, Suzanne Rico advises "Laugh Until You Cry (and Then Laugh Again." She describes how she and her husband found the humor when hubby accidentally grabbed the dog's ear medicine instead of the Gonal-F as they were heading on a getaway to Palm Springs.

"For the rest of the cycle, we laughed about it — and that felt good," she writes.

Laughter does feel good — and there are health benefits. Some studies have shown laughter boosts the immune system, lowers blood sugar and keeps the blood flowing in your body normally. And don't forget the medical clown study that found women who were exposed to 15 minutes of jokes and magic tricks after an IVF embryo transfer were more likely to get pregnant.
