SeXX Matters in Sleep Health

Women sleep differently than men. They can take longer to fall asleep, tend to be more sleep deprived, are at increased risk for insomnia, and often report different sleep disorder symptoms than men. These differences are due to biological and physiological reasons; environmental, social, and cultural factors may also influence sleep in both sexes.

SWHR outlines the importance of sex and gender differences in sleep health and the pressing need for all sleep providers and researchers to expand their knowledge of these differences in sleep and sleep disorders in this commentary, SeXX Matters in Sleep Help, published in Sleep Review.
