Relationships start to lose their spark after just one year, a new study has revealed. The survey conducted by Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor suggested that 15 per cent of couples make love every day, in the first 12-month "honeymoon" period of a relationship, a Daily reported.
Around 53 per cent of the respondents admitted that within fours years, action in the bedroom takes place only a few times in a week.
It was found that beyond that point, for 43 per cent of couples it dwindles to just a few times a month.
The study also suggested that for people, who stay together for 15 years or more, 15 per cent have sex no more than a few times a year.
When asked how they might spice things up in the bedroom, 17 per cent could only suggest "turning off the light".
However, nearly 30 per cent confessed that at times they have problems "getting in the mood".
