Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep disorders are closely linked to with erection problems, ranging from a reduced interest in sex to erectile dysfunction.

In a 2019 study, researchers learned that patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSAS) were more likely to score lower on the International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire (IIEF) test than patients with healthy, normal sleep habits.

When the sleep apnea was treated using a CPAP machine, the patients’ IIEF scores improved suggesting that sleep quality can play a role in male sexual performance.
