Most couples who are attempting to have a baby are instructed by their doctors to have timed sex. It’s a fact that infertility treatment is very exhaustive from the physical and mental viewpoint and the one other impact is that couples also find that their sex drive takes a downward trend. Before they jumped onto the “want to have a baby” bandwagon, sex was something they did for the enjoyment they derived from it and that was one way to connect with each other.
Many couples also feel that once they have made a decision to have a baby, they can be more carefree, forget about conception and just have sex; but when the pregnancy test comes back negative, this feeling undergoes a complete change. Patients don’t really discuss this very openly while a consultation is in progress, but some do ask why they feel like sex seems more like a chore for them.
Take a look at why this happens…
If you feel that your sex drive and your relationship with your partner have taken a beating, know that you aren’t alone. Take a look at how this happens:
Most infertile couples who are trying to have a baby, go through phases of depression, frustration, anxiety and constant stress. The tests and the treatment take a physical toll on them and have a negative impact on their relationship. The silver lining is that this situation doesn’t stay that way forever.
Once the couples find the solution they are looking for and they get pregnant, adopt or decide to live childfree, their relationship moves back into gear. Though things seem very tough at that point of time, once they move through all the turbulence, the skies do shine more brightly than before
