We discuss common experiences of “scheduled” and less enjoyable sex during the journey of conception, along with tips to maintain a healthy sex life. We also explore strategies for individuals with conditions like endometriosis, vaginismus, and vulvodynia, providing ways to enjoy sex without pain. Addressing performance anxiety during the ovulation window, we offer solutions to alleviate distress in relationships. We touch on re-igniting intimacy during fertility treatments, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing relationships and connection. Lastly, we briefly cover pregnancy sex and provide insights for new parents reclaiming their sensual side.
