Couples' Sexual Relationships Can Suffer During IVF, Study Finds
Date:11/2/2012

ndergoing IVF and other infertility treatments, even though sex plays a role in a couple's efforts to have a child.

"Sex is for pleasure and for reproduction, but attention to pleasure often goes by the wayside for people struggling to conceive," study co-author Nicole Smith, a doctoral student with the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at the Indiana University School of Public Health, said in the news release.

"With assisted reproductive technologies, couples often report that they feel like a science experiment, as hormones are administered and sex has to be planned and timed. It can become stressful and is often very unromantic and regimented; relationships are known to suffer during the process," Smith said.

The study was presented Oct. 30 at the American Public Health Association meeting in San Francisco. The data and conclusions of research presented at medical meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
