Has IVF affected your sex life?

A study is being done regarding the affects of going through ART on a couple's sex life: 

An Indiana University study has found that women undergoing in-vitro fertilization report that the process of infertility treatment has many negative impacts on their sexual relationship with their partner. Little attention has been given to the sexual dynamics of couples as they navigate infertility and treatments such as IVF, despite the important role that sex plays in a couple's attempt to conceive a child.

You can read the rest of the article at: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121030062407.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily%2Fhealth_medicine%2Ffertility+%28ScienceDaily%3A+Health+%26+Medicine+News+--+Fertility%29

They found that women going through IVF had a decreased sex drive, along with other sexual problems.  Do you feel that IVF has affected your sex life?
