  • A , Psychology, answered

    A recent study links sleep disorders and sexual impotency. Specifically, the study examined the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and erectile dysfunction.

    The study found that:

    • Men with erectile dysfunction were more than twice as likely to have OSA than those without erectile dysfunction.
    • The more severe the erectile dysfunction, the greater the likelihood of having OSA.
    • Men with erectile dysfunction should probably be screened for OSA.
