Speculation over whether or not she'll ever have a baby has been going on for years, but based on what appear to be cupping marks on Jennifer Aniston's skin, it looks as though she may be trying to get pregnant for real this time.
The odd discolored patches of skin were visible on her back as she walked the red carpet at the premiere of Lifetime's Call Me Crazy yesterday -- even though it appeared as though she tried to disguise them with makeup.
And while cupping, which is a form of Chinese medicine, can be used to help with releasing toxins from the body and treating congestion and inflammation -- it's also said to help with infertility.
The process involves a therapist placing a cupping glass on the skin to create a vacuum, which stimulates blood flow to the area where the cup is located.
Ok, so how exactly does cupping help with fertility? Supposedly it can help women who are trying to conceive naturally and/or through IVF by helping with ovulation, regulating hormones, thickening the uterine lining, and assisting in implantation, among other things.
And since Jen has always been a huge fan of yoga and a holistic lifestyle, it really wouldn't come as a huge surprise if she's turned to cupping to help her finally become pregnant. Now that she's happily engaged to Justin Theroux, she's at a good point in her life to become a mom. And at 44, if that's something she truly does want -- she should probably get a move on and try and conceive as soon as possible.
Hmm. I could be wrong, but based on the cupping evidence, I'd say there's a pretty good chance of us seeing a "Jennifer Aniston is pregnant!" headline before the year comes to a close. (OMG. She has to have a baby, already. She just has to!)
Have you ever heard of using cupping to help with getting pregnant?
