January is the month when most couples get pregnant — with January 2 officially named “National Baby-Making Day” — so now is the time when millions of young couples get it on in the hope of welcoming a new little one nine months down the line.
According to a new study, fertility experts say this happens because of the combination of a desire for a fall baby, of wanting to spend time together before going back to work, and of having sex to cure winter blues.
''While there isn’t much medical science to back up these tips, our members swear they have all helped and we have hundreds of bouncing new babies to prove it,” says one of the study’s authors.
The researchers also found that 71 percent of couples will try unconventional methods to boost their chances of conceiving, like "wearing socks during sex, eating McDonald's fries after making love and even wearing frozen underpants."
Some moms-to-be ate dark chocolate every day, and regularly drank pineapple juice, said to help with fertility.
