why has my poinsettia lost five leaves in the last week?



Perhaps it had a cold shock even before you bought it.

Yes I agree with Wagger, it may have been kept at too low a temperature before you bought it and may have been frosted.
The only thing to suggest is to either just enjoy what you have or take it back to the shop or nursery you bought it from. That's bad luck.
