So, you have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, and now you can finally start taking your days back. No more fatigue, day time fogginess, and constant need to fall asleep. However, while your CPAP machine has caused great gains in your sleep life, you may start to wonder how it is affecting your love life. Of course having a bedtime sleeping device may take some getting used to, but the pros of CPAP Therapy far outweigh the cons of getting used to having a CPAP Machine in the bedroom.
Here are some of the positives of having a CPAP Machine.
- Better Sleep at night. With better sleep, your body is finally able to catch back up and repair all the daily damage done to it. When your body is deprived of sleep with a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea, it slows down less critical functions such as libido and testosterone production (in men). When these slow down, your desires dwindle and your love life can too. More sleep results in more recovery time at night which allows your hormones to rebalance and increase your sex drive.
- Now that you have more energy, you are likely able to start or end your day with a workout. Science has shown that stronger cardio vascular fitness has shown to increase sexual performance in men. The stronger your heart and circulatory system are, the more easily they can supply blood to critical areas when it’s time to get in the mood.
- When you have a better night’s sleep, and can wake up and work out to improve your fitness, chances are your mood as improved too. A better mood not only can make life easier for you in day to day activities, but is probably going to make your partner happier as well.
