Is it just a myth that women have babies because men couldn't handle the pain or is it true that women have a higher tolerance for pain? Do you cry when you prick your finger or just shake it off when you break an arm?

"Best Answer!" Ha!Ha! Although I won't be a credible adviser here 'cause I'm a man :) I think you're right about this. Very reasonable, practical, and observational. I think men can take more pain. Find that article!
just wrote a hub about it :)
Sounds like you have this one pegged with not only what appears to be the most logical answer:) but scientific as well. You also couldn't be more right on the money about sometimes they just don't get it. Thanks
I applaud you for being able to sleep in between contractions WOW Breathing techniques do help in some cases Thanks
Sleepiness is the body's natural response to pain. Having a baby is a little like going to the bathroom. My first though afterwards, "I could do this again!". Breathing + concentration really works wonders.
That's funny naming the stones . I've got more metal in me holding bones together and wire than I care to mention and have shrugged it off, but a tooth ache Ahhhhh
I am going to have to agree with you on this one and add that people who have experienced more pain (me/ accident prone Annie)) tolerate it maybe a little better because of the other intense pain we've suffered.
Ditto on the broken bones and horse thing except most of mine were on the ground either getting kicked by somebody elses horse or trying to save my dog lol Still have them and love them and glad to hear you still ride :) Thanks
Hmmmm That is very interesting from a health care workers experience and point of view. Thanks
I don't take pain meds of anykind
