Women are eating McDonald’s chips immediately after the loving to try to get pregnant – because they believe the salt content in the fries will help fertilisation happen!
To be clear, it’s not loads of women employing this method – just 3% of moms have tried the trick, and they haven’t fed back to suggest that the tip made any difference. There’s no evidence to suggest that eating McDonald’s fries after sex would help you get pregnant, as is the case with most old wives’ tales and fertility ‘hacks’. But if women are using this as an excuse to have a delicious post-sex snack, we’re all for it.
That’s not the only trick women are trying in the hopes of making a baby. 58% of mum surveyed had put their legs in the air and pretended to ride a bicycle for at least three minutes, while 37% eat dark chocolate every day, and 37% drink pineapple juice. 5% have also wore green and used green bedsheets.
