YES: Not having sex be a spontaneous event and becoming too obscessed to have sex at specified times will surely decrease your sex drive. Talk to your doctor about being discouraged, have fun when you have sex, and hang in there because if you are being treated for fertility issues there is hope for you that other less fortunate couples would love to have!
