Men are far more likely to complain that their sleep is disturbed by their partner's snoring than women, according to a new research.

Men More Likely to Suffer From Sleeplessness Due to Partners' Snoring

The study of 14,000 couples found that 30 per cent of men complained that they were kept awake by their partner's snoring or coughing compared to just 20 per cent of women, reports the Daily Mail.

Snoring happens when the soft tissue at the back of the throat rattles when someone breathes in and out.

This latest study found that women tended to have more trouble nodding off and often woke up several times during the night.

Almost a quarter - 24 per cent - claimed they struggled to nod off three nights a week compared to just 18 per cent of men.

A further 26 per cent of women said they had "poor" sleep quality compared to 20 per cent of men.

Snoring can also be avoided by making few changes in our daily life. They are as follows, 1. Sleep on your side 2. Stop caffeine and heavy meals 3. Reposition your self (Head elevated 4 inch above) 4. Establish regular sleep patterns

I found the solution to my partners snoring problem on . He isnt overweight and doesnt suffer from sleep apnea but rather just has soft tissue that obstructs his breathing airway while he sleeps. SnoreMeds sell an anti-snoring mouthpiece that is worn at night. My partner said that the mouthpiece was comfortable as it moulds to the shape of your mouth and it works by gently holding your lower jaw in a slightly forward position while you sleep, which opens up the airway in your throat and causes the air to slow down and flow through more freely, therefore eliminating your snoring basically from day one! From then on we both wake up feeling a lot more refreshed and ready to deal with the day ahead...and each other- truly a life and relationship saver- minus the earplugs!
