DH says three days, I'm positive its no more than 48 hours....

Not that its an issue this month...he isn't in the mood!! sad

i think about 12 hours is the norm, 24 hours possibly.

He is wrong, you are's max 48 hours and usually around half that I believe - maybe even as few as 12.

HTH! smile

Spoim last max 7 days or so I am told...

PussinJimmyChoos Mon 04-Aug-08 19:23:09 chance of seducing him and possibly catching it then.....<sigh>

I confess I am annoyed...I've cut right down on my anti depressants ready for ttc...I'm off the pill and have bitching ovulation pains and then he decides he's stressed and so not in the mood and would prefer to wait until next month...

Men can be real shits.

well if you've got nothing to lose can you not have a huge strop and cry - currently no chance of sex and if big row then some chance of make up sex...

^^ sounds like a plan to me grin

PussinJimmyChoos Mon 04-Aug-08 20:21:05

Nope.....will not work...he's very focused on us waiting until he is less stressed..I could of course try to wake him up in the night for sleepy sex but that feels wrong....

I'm really cheesed off now...

upto 36 hours, maybe a bit more as they now say that it can last longer than previously ever thought.

'tis a pain in the arse...he knows I'm ovulating/off pill etc as we agreed it all so for him to back track a bit is so angry...he did say next month would be a possibility but I'm like ffs...
