Elemental saidSleeping on your side will help but that could be tough to maintain if your natural sleep pose is on your back.
From personal experience, my ex-bf was a really loud snorter but he was also a deep sleeper so several times a night I was able to gently roll him on his side.
Now that you know your 'snore status' you may want to disclose this ahead of any sleepovers and tell your dates It's OK to roll you. Heehee!.
This works. If we eat late, or especially if we have too much wine; I'll take a benadryl and ask my boy to just tell me to roll over on my side. I tell him he's doing me a favor actually. If you are snoring, you are likely not getting a good rest either.
It doesn't have to wake anyone up if you are gentle and the thought is pre planted. You're speaking to the subconscious...I believe. I do something similar for him if he's having overly vivid dreams/ nightmares. I'll say everything is ok baby..I love you, and he'll quiet right down without waking.
What didn't work...for long..was multiple surgeries. They helped, but like I said; in certain circumstances I can still anticipate it happening and just prepare for it. I haven't slept with anyone who doesn't snore on occasion or in certain circumstances.
Nasal irrigation helps too...for much more than just snoring.
