    No, snoring is not contagious at all.
    Maybe you just did not know that you also snore and you just noticed it only now.
    Nothing airborne about it. It's caused by the way your jaws are positioned when you sleep. Thus, you usually snore when your jaws are relaxed as you lie on your back.
    You should try sleeping on your side.

    It could be that you're allergic to something that's blooming right now, and it's causing your nasal passages to close up a little. That turns you into a mouth-breather at night, and could cause snoring.

    No, snoring is no more contagious than a sneeze because they are both symptoms of a problem, not the problem itself. Through things my kids report, I've discovered my husband and I both snore when the air is very dry in our home or when we have sinus infections. You may want to try running a humidifier and see if that helps?

      yes, my sinus is off the chart right now, looking on some natural sinus remedies to see if by stopping this sinus, it will eventually lower or seize the snoring

    Ok snoring has a very wide pathophysiology, but it is sometimes related to bad sleeping positions!

    No snoring is not contagious. A nasal rinse may be helpful. Take a pinch of salt, in the cup of your hand, mix with warm water. Hold one nostril shut, sniff warm water with the other, and blow. This removes airbourne allergies, as well as excess mucus. Add humidity to the environment. Other causes to consider, Sleep apnea can be a cause. Can only be diagnosed by a physician. Does your partner notice you stop breathing, or wake up with a gasp often? Do you have high blood pressure?These are signs of apnea.
    Over the counter preps are available. If it is just snoring. Snore stop, is a spray, that you use at night, As well as breathe right strips, that hold the nostrils open, to aide in breathing. Hope it helps. … B00005NAUM … B002GU5YCQ
