Ladies this way please-an experiment! Light hearted

(180 Posts)

So on my profile (hopefully) there is a picture of the famous fertility statues. They are currently on display at ripleys believe it or not in Orlando. In September 2008 I touched these statues and then conceived in my third month of trying in 2009. I had been trying for 9 months to Conceive dc2 when I saw something about the statues and saved a photo of them to my ipad. I dutifully touched the photo a couple of times and now in the tenth month of trying I am pregnant!
Now I know its probably a load of bull and it was probably just my time to get pregnant but anyone want to give it a go and report back on this thread? Would be interesting not very scientific at all experiment.
Let me know if the photo isn't there but hopefully it is on my profile.

Hi Treaclepie19. Sorry about your mc. Have just give the pic a good few strokes blush. What harm can it do. Fingers crossed!

I have given it a rub too! AF due Thursday maybe a bit late for this cycle but it's a bit fun and really hope it works

Shroomboom Sun 16-Mar-14 21:00:44

I rubbed it last April, dd was born in January after a 6 year struggle grin
It works!!!

I've given it a stroke. Cycle #4 TTC #1, had early miscarriage/ chemical first cycle.

hazchem Sun 16-Mar-14 08:46:20

I've just read right through this thread and I'm going to give this pic a good rub I'm in the 2ww 2nd cycle of ttc again after a 6 month break, I'm 2 years and 4 mc down the line so I'll try anything! While on holiday this summer we went to a place called adonis falls where there is a big naked statue and you have to rub his balls for fertility (which obviously I did ) so I've got double helpings of this space smile

HalfPintLulu Sun 13-Oct-13 07:48:01

Just given it ago - let's see what happens!

hazchem Sun 13-Oct-13 06:02:14

Just wanting to report back.

OH agreed to have a second about 3 weeks ago and I'm now 4+3 smile Due June but will probably be closer to July before it actually arrives.

How are you other strokers going?

hopefulgum Sat 24-Aug-13 00:03:44

Oh yes please, I will have some magic beans too grin hazchem I think giving it a stroke, might just rouse your DH's desire to ttc (but I don't mean the screen, it is your DH who needs the stroking..) grin

I am still faithfully stroking the screen. If I get upduffed after 4 years I think we can safely say this is a proven fertility treatment.

fifi669 Wed 21-Aug-13 19:06:10

Magic beans? Where?

<looks around>

Tuon Wed 21-Aug-13 17:18:40

Been trying since Mid 2011. I touched the picture.

I will also buy any magic beans you have for sale should they help my chances of conception. <desperate smile>
