Just like clockwork, it’s time to interrupt the cuddles and spooning to get up and pee again. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, surely the last thing you want to do is sleep in a different room to your partner. But new research [1] from Ontex reveals that weak bladders are one of the many reasons we’re doing just that. Almost a third (29%) revealed that because either themselves or their partners get up to go to the loo during the night they may sleep in a different room.

A recent YouGov poll revealed that one in seven British couples are more inclined to sleep in a separate bed to their partner [2] and so it seems we Brits are finding any reason to bolt for the spare bedroom with almost a quarter (24%) blaming the heat in the room.

As well as our weak bladders, over a third (34%) attributed sleeping apart to insomnia and 14% believe that tricky shift patterns could be a reason for not sleeping together. It comes as no surprise that over half (53%) blame their bedroom blues on snoring.

Take control of bladder weakness and move back into the bedroom.
