Why do we ask the questions we ask?!
Everyday I ask questions that make most patients uncomfortable, including “How much sex do you have”? I see them glance sideways at their partner and shrink into their seat. Is it ok to be saying it out loud?! 🙊🙈
YES! Please do!
We need to ask very direct, personal questions. It helps us to decide what diagnostic tests and treatment plan is best suited to your unique situation.🎈
When I ask my patients how much intercourse they have – what I’m really determining is if it is frequent enough to give the sperm and the egg a chance to meet!
If trying to get pregnant, how frequent is enough?!?!
Answer: 1-2 times per week (on most weeks) if you are not using ovulation predictor test kits or tracking your cycles.
