There's no proof to suggest that enjoying massages has any direct impact on boosting a woman's or a man's fertility. However, studies have shown that massage can help reduce stress -- and excess stress can cause fertility problems in some couples. So massage may be beneficial in helping you relax -- and thus, improve fertility indirectly. But that's also true of any activity that helps you calm down, whether it's yoga, taking a nap, or watching your favorite laugh-out-loud movie. The most important thing is to try to stay relaxed and minimize stress while you try to get pregnant and after you conceive.
