I wish it were so

If this were true, wouldn’t Valium be the new fertility drug??

Nothing makes me tense up quicker than being told to relax.

    The doctor actually says that IVF/ART is necessary for a lot of women, but she believes that stress does play some sort of role, somewhere, in some patients. Then she studied a whole sixteen, no doubt very carefully-selected, patients – a group the size of which should change no-one’s opinion about anything. As usual, the media are taking it all completely the wrong way.

    And it still, as others have pointed out, ignores the most important thing – *if* stress is important, how do we reduce it? Not by telling women to calm down, that’s for sure. Nothing makes anyone’s blood boil faster. I have actually made deliberate efforts to avoid friends who try to soothe me, in favour of people – my mum would be top of the list – who worry with me when I raise a concern. The former cause me too much stress! The latter help me control it.

    Double ick. I’d have fifty kids by now if relaxing did the trick for us.
