Women are twice as likely as men, to have difficulty falling and/or staying asleep. According to research, too little sleep results in daytime sleepiness, increased accidents, problems concentrating, poor performance on the job (and in school), and possibly, increased sickness and weight gain.
Biological conditions unique to women, such as the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and menopause, can affect how well a woman sleeps. Levels of female hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, fluctuate throughout the month and over a person’s lifetime. They have an impact on sleep. Understanding the effects of these hormones, as well as environmental factors and lifestyle habits, can help women enjoy a good night’s sleep.
