This is a tough question to answer because most couples with fertility problems begin to associate sex with their efforts to conceive. Every ovulation becomes "time to do it now!" Then during the rest of the month, sex may fall into the category of "why bother, it only reminds me that I have fertility problems," leaving no room to enjoy having sex.
If this sounds like your situation, consider taking a break from actively trying to conceive for a few months. (That may be easier said than done if your age makes you feel like you're racing against the clock.)
But it's important to make time for spontaneous sex outside of your fertile period so you can enjoy each other without pressure. For some couples, taking a break or going on a vacation can remind you how to be intimate. Other couples may find that having baby-making sex in another room keeps the bedroom a sanctuary for emotional intimacy.
Go slowly and be patient with each other. Communicate honestly with each other to share feelings related to your fertility issues. Open communication is necessary to maintain intimacy. And remember that all relationships are elastic: Even couples not facing fertility issues go through times when their passion wanes.
