Knowing how to deal with the sexual issues that arise from MS can help you address these challenges better. MS can impact intimacy and desire for sex in different ways, either as a result of:
Talk about it
Not only can discussing your problems or concerns address issues and avoid misunderstanding or isolation, but talking about your needs and what you enjoy can help you discover new ways to excite each other.
Making a small effort to plan ahead can ensure that intimacy is a priority for you and your partner.
Make it fun
Intimacy might not be the same as it was, but think of it as a chance to try something new, such as massage oils and toys.
Ask about it
It may feel embarrassing, but your neurologist can help you address some of the issues you may experience with intimacy. It’s easy to forget to ask about intimacy during your check-ups, so remember to use the Ask your neuro tool.
