I’ve been dating my partner for about 10 months now. We met during Covid. The sex was great in the beginning and we almost did it everyday. What worries me is that we do it barely once a week now.

How do I take care of this problem?

I really want to complete my family but worry about not having help with two kids. Plus I dk how long it could take to get pregnant this time
