FoxNews has an article about a survey done by First Response that found on average it took 104 sex sessions to get pregnant, here is a link to the story:

Hi Melissa!!! Nice to "see" you!


Okay, well, this is funny, because DH (53) has a better sex drive than a lot of 21 year olds. It's a very regular thing for us, even before TTC, after starting though it was SUPPOSED to be every other day, but during the crucial week, it was usually every day. Ummm, since we are on an IVF cycle, we are BDing regularly until the end of this week, then abstaining for egg retrieval late next week.

DH and I have a very active, healthy and fun sex life, and we have definitely BD waaaaay more than that since we started ttc, but we've been trying for more than 3x what that survey is based on. I'm curious if this includes people actively trying while doing all the temping, OPKs, etc or just deciding they want a baby and it taking 6 months.

Man, you girls are horndogs! :)


Anyways, because I don't ovulate and now I am waiting for my dr appt next Thursday, we haven't been doing it very much. It's not only because of that: we both started school and work... so we are pretty beat by the end of the day.


When we first started and (DH not so me because I know my history and he didn't think of it as a big deal) we would BD about every other day... but since my cycles are whack and we are in need of a dr for that... we've backed off... also because of our schedules.


When we first got together it was about that... but then life dictates and life gets more busy and complicated.


I have a feeling that when we get our stuff straightened out, it'll probably be every other day during regular times and every day during the ovulation times!!!

How do you all have TIME for all that sex????? That's what stresses me out.....DH and I have a great sex life and have for 8 years.....but before TTC we did not do it 4 times a week. We seriously just don't have time -- we're weekenders. :) When we were TTC last year, we did it ED for three cycles, then

Don't even get me started on our crazy schedules! I honestly don't know how we fit in as much as we do. Ultimately, it's not the frequency that matters. As long as both partners are satisfied and feeling happy about a healthy sex life, that's what's important. My sex drive was actually much higher before my first m/c, and I even told DH I don't feel like myself anymore. But now that he's been gone for a month and not expected back for another month...well, let's just say I might not get much computer time when he gets home! lol
