Women without appendix 'more fertile'

B.B.C. Article
Women who have had their appendix or tonsils removed appear to be more fertile, a 15-year study suggests.
The researchers, at the University of Dundee, analysed medical records from more than half a million British women.
They argue the operations could directly affect fertility or there may be a "behavioural" explanation.
Experts said the findings might lead to new treatments, but advised women not to have their tonsils and appendix taken out unnecessarily.

"134 pregnancies in women who had had their appendix removed
149 pregnancies in women who had had their tonsils removed
and 143 pregnancies in women who had had both removed"


So if you only had your tonsils removed, your chances of getting pregnant increased, but reduced again if you had your appendix removed too, even though only having the appendix removed increased your chances?

Is this research for real? Or did some bozo with a cute pen decide this?

Yep... I'll get my coat.
They came, they saw, they concurred.

Despite your protestations to the contrary, I have never sought to have you banned.

Now, however...
