Menstruation and sleep


#1

Menstruation can lead to real sleep problems for some women. According to a poll conducted by NSF, half of all menstruating women surveyed reported bloating that disturbs their sleep. On average, these women report disrupted sleep for two to three days each menstrual cycle. These changes can be linked to the rise and fall of hormone levels in the body.
