Keeping the Spark Alive!
In light of Valentine’s month, let’s talk about keeping the spark alive in your relationship. While going through infertility treatments it can be difficult for couples to maintain intimacy. Many couples find that being intimate has become a chore. Let’s change that!
One way to help reconnect with your partner is using conversation starters from different apps and websites. A couple of the apps I came across were Conversation Shaker, JustAsk Lite, and Ice Breakers for Couples. The conversation questions allow you to ask your partner anything you have ever wanted to know. These are great to do over dinner, provoking new conversations, and reignite the spark with your partner.
Massage is also a great way to reconnect with you partner, physically and emotionally. The best part is that massage helps you relax and it just might develop into great foreplay. Massage aids such as lotions, oils, and heat packs are great to use to enhance the experience as well.
Dressing for Bed – This is your chance to dress or success so to speak. For women, Lingerie = sexy, self-esteem, and confident. When picking the perfect lingerie, find one that accentuates your figure and allows you to breathe and feel comfortable. The best part is your partner will love seeing you in lingerie. For the guys, invest in some silk pajamas. Or maybe you are both more comfortable in t-shirt and shorts –the point is to remember that for your partner, you are the most perfect present, so why not let your partner “unwrap” you!
