I love my boyfriend, but I dread going to bed every night because as soon as his head hits the pillow, he starts to snore. Loudly. Non-stop. I poke him and he doesn't stop. I roll him over and he doesn't stop. He got some of that stop snoring throat spray...didn't work. Breathe right strips...didn't work. I can still hear him with ear plugs. People might think it's intolerant, but nothing irritates me more than hearing another person snore. I just can't deal with it; it's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

I try to fall asleep before he does but it's hard...often he falls asleep before I do and I struggle to fall asleep because of the volume of his snoring. If I roll over to try to get away from it, he spoons up behind me and snores in my ear. Usually I give up and go sleep on the sofa, but then I wake up with him snuggled up on the sofa next to me...snoring...at about 4-5 am. So I get up and go to the bedroom, and it hurts his feelings that I don't "want" to sleep with him.

I do want to sleep in the same bed, but I can't sleep with that racket.

What can we do?

Have his adnoids removed. I had mine removed for hearing purposes (stupid doctors, I tell ya) and haven't missed them since, and one of the side effects they told me was that people without adnoids can't snore. ..it feels like these little balls in the b ack of your nose are gone and there's just a hole now. I've never looked up an adnoid to see exactly what it was they took out.... but I didn't snore before hand, and I don't snore now, (unless I completely can't breathe due to some cold or soomething)

That can't be true because I know a girl who had that surgery and she sounds like a sawmill when she sleeps.

Sleep Apnea could be the cause. It might be something he'll want to see the doctor for. You can look up causes/symptoms/medications on line and see if it's worth trying.

If he's overweight, losing weight can help.

Sleeping face down in the pillow can help too..... (at least I guarantee he won't snore that way.... )

Try venting his pillow with a 357 magnum...lol

I'd try nasal spray before bedtime, if he can't breath properly through his nose and is a mouth breather it can be a little much to deal with for you i'm sure.

LOL!!!!

Actually nasal spray does work in my experience. However, the problem is that any relieved congesting seems to come back ten-fold the next day.
