Sleep is essential for a healthy life. In women, a range of sleep problems can emerge within the context of reproductive aging. In the reproductive years, women who experience severe PMS or painful cramps are likely to have transient insomnia and daytime sleepiness. Alleviating pain can lead to a better night’s sleep. During pregnancy and post-partum, some sleep disruption is to be expected, however, when severe or if a sleep disorder like sleep apnea emerges, it needs to be managed to ensure maintenance of physical and mental health.
