Description

The longer a couple is trying to get pregnant, the more strain will be placed on their sex life, explains Dr Rodino.

"For some couples, infertility represents one of the most stressful times in their life."

She says the repeated pairing of sex and failure about not being pregnant can change someone's sexual identity.

"You lose that spontaneity and intimacy where the main goal of sexual intercourse is to get pregnant," Dr Rodino says.
