When taken care of at an early stage, diabetes can be tolerated to comfortable and manageable levels. Levels that can make an individual to live his or her life comfortably. Diabetes and sex are two conditions where one does not favor the other. Diabetes is not sex-friendly. The greatest casualty of these disease is sex. The impacts of diabetes on sex are discouraging but at the same time such conditions that inhibit sex or are limiting to sexual intercourse can be worked on. Diabetes reduces sexual arousal in a woman. Her sex drive goes down tremendously thanks to diabetes. It becomes extremely difficult to arouse the woman sexually. The man or the husband finds himself torn by these situation. He feels he is not man enough when the wife cannot experience the expected sexual climax and eventual sexual satisfaction.
Severe stages of diabetes can cause or lead to an amputation of one of the many arms in the body. An amputated limb will no doubt affect sex performance of an individual. Actually the whole concept of sex is affected. Unless the couple is very innovative, creative and adventurous, an amputees sex life can suddenly come to an end simply because of an amputation. Disability should not be interpreted as an inability. If the couple used to be sexually active before amputation, nothing should stop these sexual escapades, they should go on as they used to be. Diabetes and sex are like a bottle of water and oil. They can hardly mix. Diabetes always comes to spoil the party. But these should not dampen any ones spirit.
Sometimes it is difficult to separate diabetes and sex. Diabetes brings vaginal dryness with it. During sex, when the vagina is dry like that it becomes uncomfortable for the man and the woman as well. Dry sex hurts and can be a major put off to a once vibrant sex life. Vaginal dryness should actually not be allowed to dampen the mood. There are so many sex gels and lubricants in practically any shop that you would like to visit. Only be careful with the numerous brands. Be ready to invest in a lubricant that would not react or be sensitive to the vagina. This should not affect your sex life because even without diabetes in question, the vagina can dry up without warning though it would only be temporal.
Diabetes comes with many sexual disorders and that is the sole reason i said it is difficult to separate diabetes and sex. Erectile dysfunction is the most common sexual disorder among men linked to diabetes. Very high blood sugars damage blood vessels around the penis. This makes the blood flow not to be optimal at the required essential areas. When things go out of hand, more problems are bound to occur. For instance some men will develop impotence due to nerve damage or neuropathies. However these is still not the end of the road as doctors are very willing to offer key solutions. These are complications associated with diabetes and are very real.
