Does sexual desire change when couples try to conceive pregnancy?

Around 90 per cent of the couples I see agree that their sex lives are affected one way or another by trying to get pregnant. In the early days, many find that their sex

life is enhanced because it can be liberating not to have to use any form of contraception. Indeed, it is quite likely that this will never have been the case before. Most women spend their entire reproductive lives trying not to get pregnant, so suddenly not having to worry about this can feel very erotic and sexually liberating.

For other couples, however, and these are the majority of those I see, their sex life starts to suffer soon after they decide to try for a baby. Typically, this happens after four or five months, when pregnancy has not occurred and anxiety and tension start to creep in, but the deterioration can begin at any time if sex becomes planned from the start. So, if you are in this situation, and your sex life and libido are not what they were, you are far from being alone. Let me reassure you, with a little extra effort and communication between you both, you can get your sex life back on track.
