Sex can be a source of frustration when you're trying to conceive. Sex becomes a reminder of what isn't working the way it should. 

Few people ever consider the idea that sex might not lead to pregnancy every time, until they actually try to get pregnant and struggle. When things don't "work the right way," sex goes from being a stress reliever to being a stress creator. 

Add in the stress of timing for ovulation, or being told by your doctor to have sex on particular days, and sex may feel more like homework than a way to connect and show love for each other.

Has sex become a chore for you? How do you tackle it these days?
