Passing a kidney stone is similar. So eat a lot of fatty food for awhile, then you will get your free kidney stone to experience contractions. The thing with kidney stones is you have no control over the pain as it passes though to your bladder. Then you will have mercy on your wife.

Try cluster headaches... they don't call them "suicide headaches" for nothing! I wanted my life to end when I had one. Women who have had them say that they FAR exceed anything they went through with childbirth.

If MEN had to have babies, the human race would have been extinct long ago.

And every time I see a mother juggling two kids and one more in a baby carrier along with seven bags of groceries, I'm amazed.

How do they do it?????????

All I can say is: I'm sure glad I was a boy . . . . . .

I just have to chime in here! I worked as an RN in labor and delivery for 4 years. Three years of that was at an Indian Health Service hospital where they gave NO pain meds. I saw the type of pain these women went through. THEN, I had a baby myself with NO pain meds. 99.9% of women forget how bad the pain is because of Post Traumatic Stress where we block out painful memories. Right after I had my baby however, I stubbed my toe. Holy Hannah, a flood of painful memories of my labor came rushing back and I REMEMBERED my pain! It was exactly like stubbing my toe! It shoots up your body! But you have to stub your toe every 5-10 minutes for a good 20 hours to appreciate what labor really is for women...BAD. My motto now is epidural, epidural, epidural! Just have a woman test the labor simulator herself and she'll tell ya if it's realistic or not!

Is there a test to compare 'pain' across both genders? Say, shingles vs birth? birth vs kidney stones? shingles vs kidney stones? Or, we can as women who have given birth and had shingles. I have. Shingles won.
