Tis the Season to Conceive?

Tis the Season to Conceive?

When you think about a windstorm, ice storm or other natural disaster that could befall a community, you probably don't think about pregnancy as a casualty. But that's precisely what happens when the power goes out and people have less ways to occupy their time.

In Louisville, Kentucky, they're attributing a windstorm back in September for the recent increase in Ob/Gyn visits. And, according to demographer, Michael Price, "there have been several documented increases in conceptions in the last decade in large populations such as New York following major power failures."

When the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful it's as good a reason as any to spend some time getting cozy with a loved one. Just make sure you're aware of what an extended power outage could lead to.

Do you know of anyone conceived during a storm or power outage?

Life without my boyfriend was a real mess for me and my parent I wanted a dramatic change and I thought magic could be the solution. After discussing the resolution with DR ABAKA, he gave me hope that he will restore my relationship back because he already engaged me. I felt confident that he will actually make my boyfriend to return home and he did! It’s fantastic what this great spell caster have done for me, his help is priceless!

Haha, that does make sense! Another reason that people might be more prone to get it on during awful weather is that it puts your body into a state of stress (the whole flight-or-fight action). I read somewhere that when we're stressed, we feel threatened, and when we feel threatened, our biological urge is to defend our genes, and one of the best ways to defend our genes is to procreate. It's totally subconscious. Not to open up another can of worms, but this theory helps explain why lower-economic people tend to have many more children than those of higher economic status.
