Did you know that women are twice as likely to have insomnia than men? (Source: University of Michigan Medicine) When researchers studied the sleep of young boys and girls, they noted there are no differences until puberty starts. Then, at different times of the month, girls and women will sleep better than at other times because of the fluctuations in their menstrual cycles. Other life events in a woman鈥檚 life - pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause, menopause - can also greatly affect women鈥檚 ability to sleep well, rest, and recover.聽
