Is Sex on Demand Ruling Your Life? - Trying to Conceive

Foreplay Is for Rookies
While your husband may be initially attracted to the aggressive new you, over time your pit-crew mentality -- in-and-out service in less than 10 minutes -- may start to wear thin. You may be surprised when you start to sense some reluctance as you call his services into action. Since when did sex have to be special for him? In your pre-ovulation days, your husband could have one leg caught in a bear trap and yet would somehow manage to have sex if you showed even the slightest interest. Getting in the mood was an oxymoron -- was there ever a time when he wasn't in the mood?

Now the roles have reversed -- he is the sensitive one and you are the one who wants sex for sex. This sudden shift in the relationship is sure to leave both parties feeling a little off balance and can have dire consequences on your relationship if ignored. Your husband may start to feel like you are using him for one purpose and one purpose only -- to make a deposit in your joint account. As his enthusiasm wanes, you are likely to get more and more annoyed as your mind can only process one thing during your fertile days, "ovulation + sex = BABY!" This vicious monthly cycle is sure to lead to some bad bedroom behavior if you don't take the time to consider both of your feelings. So, before you flip the calendar and map out next month's ovulation plan, take a few minutes to consider these tips to managing the inevitable... sex on demand.
