Is Snoring Ruining Your Relationship?

When was the last time you thought about sex?  And when you did, what was your reaction?

There are two things that people think about when they think of bed: sleep and sex. Whether you are physically young, or young in mind and spirit, the quality (and quantity) of your sleep and your bed partner's sleep determines the quality (and quantity) of your sexual activity. If you are sleeping in separate beds, or even separate rooms because of snoring, the psychological bond between couples is broken. Lack of sleep can cause moodiness and depression - emotions that can decrease your desire for sex. In fact, a low sex drive is the most common complaint made by up to 30 to 40 percent of women.  

Snoring, the sound that turns a usually loving spouse into a screamer, crier, poker and kicker and turns the snorer into a liar ("I wasn't snoring!"), an apologist and ultimately one who sleeps in a separate room, shouldn't be a relationship killer. Snoring is an equal opportunity relationship downer, whether it's the first intimate encounter or years into a happy marriage.

It has been estimated that over 80 percent of snoring couples sleep in separate bedrooms. An article in the April 2008 issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine reported that men who snored more reported less sexual satisfaction. In fact, men who were heavy snorers were over twice as likely to report low sexual satisfaction compared to non-snorers. So, if you live with a snorer, talk with him or her about the problem. There will no doubt be denial ("I still don't snore!") and some embarrassment, but reassure your partner that you know that he or she can't help it. Even if your partner has tried many "cures" and has settled into a feeling of helplessness, be sure to explore all treatment options.

To some, snoring might seem like just a nighttime annoyance, but it can be linked to more serious issues. Getting a sleep biometric report can help determine how serious your snoring is, and if you should see a certified sleep specialist about the issue.

Recently, Snore Metrics introduced an Apple iPhone app  Snore Report, that analyzes the pitch, tone, frequency, amplitude and wave patterns of your snoring. It is then compared to a clinical database to calculate your sleep assessment. Snore Report is so easy to use, all that is required is to enter your basic information, push start, put it on your nightstand and fall asleep. In the morning, a free comprehensive biometric report of your snoring is displayed along with a Snore Score to determine the seriousness of your snoring.
