First Response did a survey that found out on average it took 104 sex sessions to get a BFP: http://www.ivillage.com/how-many-times-did-you-have-sex-get-pregnant/6-a-258392#comments?ice=iv:mb:msg:mm.

How many times would you estimate that it took for you to get your BFP?

A hundred and four times?!?!?! holy smokes!! Strangely enough, it took me the longest amount of time (six months) to get pg with my first child. After that, it's almost as if my body was like "OK, I know what to do now!" Because my second child was unplanned, the 3rd came from a misused condom and the 4th was conceived on day 8 of the cycle (which I thought might still be early enough to avoid conception)!

I do wonder if in some women, the body just kind of "learns" all about the conception thing and then "gets with it" more easily after the first time. Not very scientific, I know.... just a theory!

yeah, 104 seems like a huge number, and honestly, I'd have lost count after a while, well before I got to 104.
