Can Relaxin help PE?
I’m very excited because this is the first time I’ve started a thread.
HELLO EVERYBODY !
When my wife was pregnant, I remember learning that, as she approached her delivery date, the concentration of a hormone called “relaxin” would increase in her system, causing her tendons and ligaments to loosen. This hormone is apparently essential for successful delivery, as it allows the different portions of the pelvis to separate slightly for allowing the baby to pass through the birth canal.
When I read about stretching in connection with PE, a light bulb went off. Could relaxin help to loosen the suspensory ligaments and tunica, thus promoting faster progress with PE??
Please don’t everybody go out and buy this stuff. Bad side effects include joint instability and consequent injury. Generally, you don’t want your tendons and ligaments to be loose. But still, I’m intrigued by the possibilities.
In particular, I’m thinking about whether relaxin could be administered topically, as an ointment or gel, which would then preferably affect only the areas to which it was applied and not cause a systemic loosening of connective tissue.
I’m also thinking about dosage. Too much and the ligs and tunica could possibly be overstretched and deformed. But, then again, maybe not. We’d have to consult an expert in this area.
Has anybody though of this? Are there any products available that employ this principle? Do we have a doctor in the house?
