Observing cervical mucus changes has been part of the fertility awareness method and fertility charting for quite some time, however, not many women are aware of how effective this method is at improving the odds of conception.As part of this study, researchers asked women to identify the type of cervical fluid they had as one of four types: Previous studies found that women who had intercourse on a day when they had transparent and slippery cervical mucus were 2 to 3 times more likely to get pregnant than on days when they had dry or damp mucus.Though the only way the claim could strictly be true is if your chances of winning are absolutely zero, or if you buy zero cards - probably not the ringing endorsement Ryanair intended.” Grimes conceded that the airline's slogan was "more catchy" than his calculation.He was keen to note that calculations like the one in his tweet are "quite removed" from his usual line of work, which focuses on mathematical modelling of tumours and science writing. "I was simply procrastinating on a short-flight instead of actually being productive, but as most of my work consists of cancer modelling or debunking dangerous pseudoscience in media, it was a pleasant distraction.
But, it’s not necessarily what you wear, that would be a study in itself.
