"How do I get my man into bed when he sees sex as a TTC chore and I desperately want to get pregnant?"

This is something that many of us who have been TTCing for months struggle with. No man likes being used just for his sperm and being on the clock. It kills the mood. It can even lead to performance issue.

But for those of us who need to have sex every day or every other day of our fertile window and beyond, we need our men to keep up.

We need it when we need it. And, we need it fast and done, so that we can go on with our day. Or just go to sleep. 

No one likes to talk about it...but frequent sex is awful. You can chafe and be sore. You can have great discomfort, especially if you are not well lubricated because you are trying to fit into your busy day and your mind is on a hundred different things. It can, and does, feel like a chore. 

So what to do? What do YOU do? Is this process easy for you? Or do you struggle too? What coping techniques have you come up with?
