My husband and I, married one year on Sunday, have been sharing a bed since 2008.
For the past several years, I’ve been wearing foam earplugs so that I can get some sleep.
However, for the past few years, I’ve been experiencing chronic ear infections, and the only thing I can think of that may be causing it are the ear plugs. (I’ve been to see my GP and an ENT, and this is the general consensus as there’s nothing else happening with my ears.)
So. Now. Shy of sleeping in separate bedrooms, I’m looking for some kind of home remedy or over-the-counter product that helps alleviate snoring.
Any advice? Thanks!

Have you tried the nose stickers? My father snores really loudly and my parents have always slept in separate bedrooms because of it.
The first night we spent in the same bed, my SO rolled over and said “I’m SO happy you don’t snore!!” because apparently everyone in his family does! (Luckily, he doesn’t either!)

A sleep Study should be preformed. The airway is “sloppy” so to speak. And there may be a possibility of sleep apnea happening.

I should also say…if sleep apnea is happening to cause this snoring it will be completely stopped if prescribed a CPAP or BiPAP

My father used to snore really badly, and he started using a small breathing machine when he sleeps–turns out, he’s had sleep apnea this whole time. My mother is so relieved; she can finally sleep through the night!
I agree that a sleep study is worth looking into…Dad didn’t even have to do a full study; sometimes the symptoms are that obvious and the doc can just say: oh! do this.
