Influence of Sleep on Fertility in Women

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

An estimated 15.5% of women in the United States experience infertility, and a wide range of conditions, behaviors, and exposures have been linked to this reduced reproductive capacity. Sleep is a critical component to health and well-being, yet the amount of research devoted to determining the association between sleep and fertility in women is lacking. This article will discuss potential pathways by which sleep dysregulation may modulate fertility and summarize observational study data related to shift work and fertility.
