Trying to Get Pregnant? Consider Sexual Frequency

However, certain characteristics seemed to influence the couples’ sexual frequency. For example, younger couples tended to have sex more often than older ones. People with a high school education or less, and those of a non-white race appeared to have more frequent sex than participants in other categories.

For men, exercise was associated with higher sexual frequency, while having a mood disorder or anxiety was linked to less sex.

Other issues can affect sexual frequency as well, such as hormone levels and relationship happiness. However, the researchers did not have information on these aspects.

Still, the results could help specialists who work with couples trying to conceive, the authors noted.
