I've mentioned this fact already here, but I've got to reiterate this statistic:
"Couples not using contraception have, on average, about an 18% chance of conceiving normally ... Couples having sex more than twenty times a month have around a 35% chance."*
Note to the folk who know me in real life and have already expressed disquiet at hearing about my sex life, look away now.
The rest of you: let me tell you my plan.
The way the NHS works is that I get one go at Interuterine Insemination, a month off, another shot, month off, then a final go. So here I am in the in-between month and, rather than rest on my laurels, I intend to spend it lying back and thinking of England.
The bedroom has been rechristened the lovenasium, and the activity du jour is sexercise.
The husband was delighted when I told him my plan, warning him that he would be on a strict every-other-day sex schedule. His enthusiasm was somewhat diminished when I had to clarify that the only notches on his bedpost would be related to me. But he has manfully risen to the task.
Starting out, the prospect is sexciting but I fear by the end of the month I'll be sexhausted.
