My husband is 51 & snores to the point were I end up sleeping in the front room. He is under the epping hospital & we are waiting to hear back with an appointment for a sleep clinic but what can i do in the mean time to help him with his snoring & breathing cos he stop breathing evry now & then with frightens the hell out of me
My husband and I have had separate bedrooms for 10 years, since the last child left home. Both of us snored and I got fed up with him blaming me for his poor sleep. BUT I was diagnosed with sleep apnoea 4 years ago and now sleep with a Constant Positive Airway machine. It has changed my life. I now sleep all through the night, 7 hours and a most important effect is that I no longer have bad dreams. This is because the apnoea woke me up in REM sleep, when I was having complicated dreams but actually struggling to breathe. This is so amazing to me. I worry about my husband too, he still sleeps badly but I don't think it sounds as bad as yours since he only snores after drinking lager beer (Stella is the worst !) He refuses to ask to go to sleep clinic. If it is sleep apnoea, the machine will change (and prolong) his life. In the meantime; NO BEER or any alcohol. (This will help with weight loss, I assume he is overweight!) The nose strips or a little device which sits in his nostrils & keeps them more open may help. Best wishes, Jacky

It's called Peyronies and is caused by plaque. There are treatments, but the outcomes vary greatly. If the angle is that great then it could definitely interfere with intercourse and you should consult with a urologist for your options.

You won't know until you try. If you've had no difficulty (i.e., pain or discomfort) with masturbation, chances are you won't have any difficulty with sex. If you do have difficulty, then that will provide more information which will help with assessment and suggestions of what to do next.
