Differences in sleep for men and women begin at a very early age, with women reporting poorer sleep and having a higher risk for insomnia compared with men. Women are particularly vulnerable to developing insomnia during times of reproductive hormonal change. Sleep across the woman's lifespan and special treatment considerations for using cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) in women will be addressed in this review.
