Having more sex increases the odds of getting pregnant, according to “breakthrough” research conducted by Indiana University:

Women’s bodies respond to regular sexual activity by their immune system releasing more “Type 2 helper T cells” and immunoglobulins, or antibodies, as a preparation ahead of a possible pregnancy.

This means that having more sex results in a different kind of immune system for women, and one which makes them more fertile and likely to fall pregnant.

Tierney Lorenz, the lead author of the report and a visiting research scientist at the Kinsey Institute in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University, said in a press release that the research was a breakthrough.

Studies, what would we do without them?
