Poor-Quality Sleep Linked to Sexual Dysfunction in Older Women

Poor-Quality Sleep Linked to Sexual Dysfunction in Older Women

The women completed questionnaires about their sleep quality between December 2016 and September 2019. Sleep quality was measured by the women’s responses to questions about falling and staying asleep, using sleep medication, drowsiness during the day and other issues. In addition, researchers evaluated the women for sexual dysfunction and asked them to rate how unhappy they were with their sexual lives. Researchers also found that on average, these women tended to report sexual problems to a greater degree.
