  • Tiredness is number one excuse for women

    More than half of Britons in relationships admit to turning down sex with their partner due to tiredness (57.7%).

    A new survey revealed that of the women quizzed, more than 45% said they use tiredness as their number one excuse for not having sex. However, only 19% of the men surveyed revealed tiredness as their reason for refusing knooky.

    More than 31% of people answering the survey confessed that their sexual appetite is hindered by tiredness. 

The survey, by leading vitamin brand Pharmaton capsules – the only clinically proven vitamin and mineral supplement to relieve daily fatigue – asked over 1,400 UK adults about how tiredness affects their daily lives.

    Other revelations include 11.3% of the married people surveyed saying that their wedding wasn’t worth the stress and tiredness it caused. The survey also revealed that more than 36% of parents admit that they sometimes resort to feeding their children takeaway food or ready-meals because they are too tired to cook.   

    Dr Jas Kalsi, a GP, explains: ‘Exhaustion is very common, especially these days as people try to squeeze everything they possibly can out of life.’
