Women with sleep apnea might experience a boost in their sex life if they regularly use a CPAP machine, a new study shows, reportsĀ Medical Xpress.

Researchers found that women who used the device nightly reported a significant improvement in their sexual satisfaction after a year of treatment.

The same benefit was not seen in men, however.

Still, “this [study] provides further evidence that if patients have problems with their sleep, they should be evaluated by their provider because treatment of their sleep apnea can have tremendous benefit in their lives all around,” said lead researcher Dr. Sebastian Jara, an otolaryngologist with the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
