I just read some research concerning pain and redheads.
The Research Institute at the University of Loisville showed redheads had a lower pain threshold .
However, research from McGill University said redheads responded better to pain relief treatments and had the highest pain threshold than other hair colors. (It has to do with Melanin and skin color)
This interested me because I'm a redhead anxiously trying to become pregnant
What do you all think?
I do not think any pregnant woman cares about hair color, give the meds.

In response to Barbpick's post
Just pondering some research because I am a student. Some people like to know about research so they can learn and grow (IMO).
"Just give the med and shut up"...uh... that's not the type of nurse I want to become!
But thank you for your interesting insight...
