Period Insomnia: Everything you need to know

What causes period insomnia?

Women are more likely than men to experience insomnia, and the likely cause is hormonal. Your monthly cycle consists of four distinct phases, and each phase brings about changes to your hormones that can directly affect your sleep. 

The four phases of your period are the menstrual phase, follicular phase, ovulation phase, and luteal phase.

How to tell if you have period insomnia?

You can fall asleep

Maybe you have a lot on your mind, or maybe nothing at all. No matter the reason, you simply cannot fall asleep during your period. Changes in your hormone levels can interfere with your body’s release of melatonin, which helps you fall asleep. 

You can’t get stay asleep

Hormones can change your body temperature, making it difficult for you to stay asleep. If you’ve ever woken up feeling hot or sweaty, it could be a result of hormonal changes that are making your body temperature rise. 

How to deal with period insomnia?

Eliminate Caffeine

We know. It’s hard. But if you aren’t sleeping well, caffeine will make your lack of sleep worse. Using too much caffeine can interfere with your natural sleep cycle and make it even more difficult to fall asleep, which will have you reaching for more caffeine the next morning. 

Put your phone down

Your work or school emails can wait. Blue light emitted from your devices can interfere with your circadian rhythm, causing it to become increasingly difficult for you to fall asleep at night. 

If you’re having trouble sleeping, make it a rule to put down your phone and power off devices at least thirty minutes before bedtime.
