She said it is up to her and she'll "figure it out" but hasn't done anything in terms of appointments, etc, and I can't make her. The longer we go without SF, the more I get insecure again. I hate this but I don't know what to do. Bringing up the subject makes her feel pressured and typically leads to a fight. Any suggestions?

The only way to get pregnant is to have PIV sex. But there are so many other ways to have sex that do not involve putting the P in the V. It's likely that not all of those ways are your or your wife's cup of tea. But there have to be some non-PIV sex acts that you both enjoy, right?
