Women could increase their chances of getting pregnant by using a 100-year-old fertility technique, research revealed in May.

The procedure, which involves flushing a woman’s Fallopian tubes with poppy seed oil, was first used in 1917 and has significant fertility benefits, a study found.

Results revealed almost 40 percent of previously infertile women conceived within six months of trying the unconventional procedure.

It could offer couples the opportunity to have a successful pregnancy without relying on costly IVF, researchers from the University of Adelaide’s Robinson Research Institute said.

Up to one in five couples in the US struggles to conceive within the first year of trying despite having regular unprotected sex
