In any case, this is revealed by a study based on the medical records of nearly 3 million adult patients.
Irritability, depression , headaches… if we know that sleep disorders have sometimes very disabling consequences on the physical and mental health of those who suffer from them, we now learn that they can also have about their sex life. In any case, this is demonstrated by a recent study published in the journal Urology and relayed by The Independent .
Based on the medical records of nearly 3 million women , the scientists behind this work have indeed discovered that sexual disorders were more frequent in women who suffered from insomnia or sleep apnea. , a disorder that can lead to heavy snoring.
The study revealed that women suffering from the latter pathology were twice as likely to present with sexual arousal disorders. Nearly 70% of them also reported having difficulty reaching orgasm . Similarly, women with insomnia “were two or three times more likely than average to also suffer from sexual problems,” reports the British media.
“We found a strong association between female sexual dysfunctions and poor sleep quality. These two problems often go undiagnosed and untreated ,” Dr. Taylor Kohn of Johns Hopkins University in Maryland told The Sun. “Our results support the need to recognize the importance of the link between sleep and women’s sexual health.”
A hormonal imbalance
But how to explain the link between sleep disorders and sexual disorders in women? According to the researchers behind the study, it seems that disturbed sleep leads to a drop in the level of estrogen and testosterone. And as The Independent points out, “these hormones play a vital role in individuals’ libido .”
However, the same team of scientists also demonstrated through another study that the link between sleep and sex life was also noticeable in men. Those who suffer from sleep apnea or insomnia are thus more likely to also suffer from, among other things, “erectile dysfunction and testosterone deficiency.”
