Everyone has been telling you to “just relax and it will happen.” Oh sure. We really believe that. How could you possibly relax? You’re not getting any younger here and your eggs are aging a little more every day. You have avoided that much needed vacation due to fertility appointments and cycle monitoring for months but now it’s time to try that vacation baby-making sex you’ve heard so much about. Your friends have told you endless stories about how they knew someone who had been trying for years and got pregnant after a trip to Mexico. Your friend’s cousin’s sister’s friend had vacation sex and came home pregnant with twins! Maybe that will happen to you?! You leave for your vacation feeling relaxed and somewhat confident you will come home pregnant. You and your husband have a great trip with lots and lots of baby-making sex, several times a day. All fertility rules are thrown out the window – you can have sex multiple times a day on vacation and your husbands sperm count will still remain plentiful! No sex every other day for you this month!
So when Aunt Flow arrives that following month, you are a little surprised. You start to think of excuses why you didn’t get knocked up. It must have been that two hour time change that made a difference to your internal clock or perhaps your body didn’t adjust well to all that new food. That’s what it was, for sure. Well, at least you had a great trip and spent money on something other than fertility treatments.
