Clicky poll time - BDing

Okay, maybe this belongs under FFC, but I've been writing down on my calendar how many times DH and I BD, because I always gripe I don't get it enough. We made it up to 9 this month, and I'm pretty sure I initiated at least 7 of those. What about you guys? [Poll]

Re: Clicky poll time - BDing

  • I voted 7-8, but that might be a little conservative. It's about two or three times a week with time off for AF (and usually daily around O).

    After 22 cycles and 4 failed IUIs, Serafina joined our family through IVF/ICSI, born 8.28.12
    Surprise! The Sequel is due 12.8.14!

  • I voted 3-4, but sometimes it's 5 or 6 depending on when I O. But this is only because we are TTC. Before it was 1-2 per month...and it wasn't unusual for us to go 3-5 weeks without anything. It's always been a problem in our relationship - me feeling like I don't get enough. I'd be thrilled with once a week. But DH seems to think that because he's in his 30's and "not 18 anymore" that this is normal. I don't agree!

  • We are probably still in our honeymoon phase, because in our case it's 10+ (on average every other day) I initiate more than half of it.
  • DH has a pretty low sex drive, so it's not unusual for us to have sex 2-3 times a month (if that).  Since starting the TTC journey it's been more... I hate to push DH as he's made mention that at times it feels forced (on my part).  I guess I didn't realize this because if it were up to me it would be serveral times a week.  Embarrassed

    My little love bugs!

  • Yeah, ours is definitely up since TTC. Before, once a week was average. His drive used to be way higher than mine when I was on BCP, but now it's reversed. He's also 31, and I'm only 24, so maybe that has something to do with it. He also has high blood pressure, and I've heard that effects (affects?) it. I think it does feel a little forced with him now, too, but I don't care. We're gonna have a friggin' baby! Devil

  • Pre-pregnancy we averaged 2-3 times per week so I voted 7-8.  Now, we are just getting back into it now that I'm almost 6 weeks pp and have done it once a week...mainly due to exhaustion and a little baby that wants to stay up late.

  • It really varies. On average I would say 3 times a week but there might be some weeks where we dont at all and then others where we do it 5 or 6 times.
  • Pre TTC 2-3 times a week

    Now 4-6 times a week... my cycles can be irregular sometimes and I am afraid to miss an O.

    Same here.

    And, btw, I'm really glad you posted this because I wondered why DH wanted it less often than me.  Since there is such a stigma for men and sex, like they think about it all the time and whatnot, I expected him to want it more often.  But it's good to know that my marriage is normal.  Also, I feel implied to mention, that even though I want it a little more often than him, it's not a huge issue... just a minor one.  (I voted 10+)

    It's becoming more of an issue in our marriage. I think his deal is stress so we're trying to find ways to get him to not stress so much, that way he can really relax at night. We'll see!

  • Since TTC it has been 10+ but before it was probably 6-8. We tend to flip flop on one of us wanting more than the other.
