Sexual dysfunction is a serious health and quality-of-life issue for the sufferer and his or her partner. It can even extend beyond intimacy and potentially lead to strained relationships between couples. When a person is constantly waking because of sleep apnea, the body cannot properly produce and regulate sex hormones.
