Diabetes & Sex
Understanding How It Impacts Sexual Health

Diabetes is a common condition that can lead to a variety of health issues and it can dramatically impact your sexual functioning. Diabetes affects the endocrine system and causes too much glucose in the blood. Over time this can damage blood vessels throughout the body, which in turn can affect sexual functioning.

Diabetic neuropathy is caused by damage to the nervous system and over time it can make it difficult for men to achieve and maintain an erection and for women, it can cause vaginal dryness, a decrease in genital sensation, cause pain during sex and/or cause difficulty in reaching orgasm.

Diabetes can also make yeast and urinary tract infections more likely as high glucose levels assist in the growth of bacteria in the vagina and urethra. High blood glucose can sap your energy as well, causing fatigue and a lowered interest in sex. Maintaining appropriate blood sugar levels is essential for those with diabetes and even those without it as imbalanced blood sugar can have this affect on anyone.

In addition to using good judgment about monitoring your blood sugar, women can benefit from lubricants and vibrators that will aid in increasing blood flow. Men can also benefit from vibrator stimulation, penis pumps and in extreme cases of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) harnesses and hollow dildos can be used.
