Sex Is Better With Longer Sleep, Study Says
A new study says that sleeping longer and better could improve the sex lives of postmenopausal women. During the menopausal stage in a woman’s life sleep disturbance and insomnia occur frequently. These conditions are previously known to be related to depression, heart disease and hypertension.
However, a new study suggests that lack of sleep could affect the sex lives of women over 50. Data from 93,668 women aged 50 to 79 was analyzed by researchers from the North American Menopause Society. All the volunteers were a part of a program dedicated to women’s health called the Women’s Health Initiative.
The analysis revealed that 56 percent were somewhat or highly satisfied with their current sex lives. Almost 52 percent reported sexual relations with a partner during the last year. And 31 percent were suffering from insomnia. Researchers also noted that insomnia increase in the process of aging.
The results settled a relation between sexual satisfaction, duration of sleep and the age of the women. In fact, women who get six hours sleep a night were found to be nine percent less likely to be sexual active. If they sleep less than seven to eight hours of sleep at night, compared with younger women. Women age over 70 who sleeps less than five hours a night is 30 percent less likely to enjoy sexual activities. Compared to women in the same group age that sleeps for seven hours.
According to iAfrica, lead author of the study said that there are effective treatment options to help with sleep disruption and sexual satisfaction. According to a study in 2015 by the researchers at Pennsylvania State University, a third of the premenopausal women suffer from insomnia. Hormone therapy is known to be effective for symptomatic women.
According to the Romper, there are several ways on how sleep deprivation could affect your sex life. Lack of sleep could lower testosterone levels. Lack of sleep could affect your emotions and mood. It could also make you feel tired. It could contribute to depression and anxiety. The study suggests that people who want a better sex life, they should probably get to longer sleep at night.
