Snoring Partner Sleep Deprivation

Solution To Snoring Partner and Sleep Deprivation

Fighting in the night, sleeping apart, decreased sexual relations—these are just a few of the symptoms of a relationship being torn apart by snoring.  

If you snore or sleep with a snorer, you know how tough it can be on your relationship. Here are some insights into why snoring is the number one medical cause of divorce in the U.S.

Sleep Deprivation Snoring

Snoring disrupts the sleep cycle of both snorers and their bed partners. When sleep is continually interrupted, one suffers from sleep deprivation, the effects of which could sour any relationship, including:

  • Arguments: Sleeplessness causes irritability and poor judgment. If you and your partner are sleep-deprived, even the most trivial of remarks can be misinterpreted, causing sparks to fly. 

  • Stress: Whereas sleeplessness was once considered the result of stress, recent medical research reveals stress is the result of poor sleep. As stress in you or your partner increases, so does tension and friction. 

  • Diminished Sex Drive: Medical specialists report that sleep-deprived couples have a decreased interest in sex. Understandably, partners may not be “in the mood” when they’re exhausted.

  • Depression: Doctors have discovered prolonged periods of poor sleep can lead to depression, and that once an individual’s sleep difficulties are solved, the depression lifts. Sadness or despair can greatly diminish the feelings of love or affection between partners.

  • Poor Health: Sleep deprivation has been linked to various medical conditions including a higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, weight gain, and diabetes. Maintaining a relationship is challenging among the anxiety and discomfort of poor health, either yours or your partner’s. 

  • Sleep deprivation alone is enough to wreck a relationship, but snoring also creates the emotional issues covered below.

    Reduced Intimacy

    Sharing a bed for sleep promotes a greater feeling of intimacy between couples. But per statistics, however, an estimated four out of ten women whose partners snore move to another room to sleep. When you are separated from your partner during sleep, the special bond of intimacy between you is weakened. 

    Guilt and Resentment

    People don’t snore on purpose. Nonetheless, their bedpartners, suffering from chronically interrupted sleep, often develop feelings of resentment toward them. In turn, snorers may feel guilty about the trouble they’re causing their loved one. The result is an ongoing vicious cycle that muddies the feelings of love between couples.

    Why Do People Snore?

    Snoring is caused by a partial obstruction in the passageway between one’s throat and nose or mouth during sleep. During sleep, the throat muscles relax and narrow this passageway. When air travels over the partial obstruction, the soft tissues vibrate and the harsh sounds of snoring occur.

    Snoring is also a common indicator of sleep apnea, a serious medical condition in which one stops breathing for a brief time during sleep. If you snore, see your doctor arrange a sleep apnea test.

    Treat Snoring and Revitalize Your Relationship 

    with VitalSleep Anti-snoring Mouth Piece 

    We understand how frustrating it is to have a relationship with a snorer—for both the person who snores and their sleep-deprived partner. That’s why we offer VitalSleep anti-snoring mouthpiece. Developed by a physical therapist who was himself a snorer, VitalSleep quiets snoring so couples can once again enjoy a deep, restful sleep in the same bed.

    How Does VitalSleep Work?

    As explained earlier, a blocked airway during sleep causes snoring. The VitalSleep anti-snoring mouthpiece holds the lower jaw forward to keep the airway clear and allow air to pass freely between the lungs and nose and mouth. By having a clear airway, quiet breathing and the ability to sleep through the night is restored for both the snorer and his or her partner.
