Many sexual problems produced by MS symptoms or MS treatments can be managed with the help of your medical team.
§ Pain can be controlled with medications.
§ Spasticity can be reduced with medication, cold packs, and stretching or massage.
§ Fatigue can be alleviated through energy conservation and, in some cases, with medication. Making love at times when the partner with MS is most energetic (usually the morning) will also help.
§ Alternative sexual positioning can help with both spasticity and weakness. Using pillows for support or trying the side positions can relieve discomfort.
§ Catheters can be secured during sex. Your doctor or nurse can show you the best way.
§ Medication side effects may be minimized by taking medications at a different time of day or by changing the timing of sexual activity. You might also consult your doctor about switching to medications with fewer sexual side effects.
Please talk to your medical team so that you can eliminate the secondary problems which interfere with your primary sexual function and quality of life.Rest this post in its entirety:
