Clowns Help Women Get Pregnant

A study of 229 Israeli women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to treat infertility found that a 15-minute visit from a trained "medical clown" immediately after the embryos were placed in the womb increased the chance of pregnancy to 36%, compared with 20% for women whose embryo transfer was comedy-free. The study was published in "Fertility and Sterility."

After controlling for factors such as the women's age, the nature and duration of their infertility, the number of embryos used and the day on which they were transferred into the uterus, researchers found an even greater effect of therapeutic laughter: the women who were entertained by a clown were 2.67 times more likely to get pregnant than those in the control group. In the trial, the professional medical clown visited patients during the half-hour after embryo transfer. (Time)

This is why there are so many clowns in the world. Uncle Spermy has extraordinary motility.
