Long-term high blood sugar levels can cause problems with the way you have sex, called sexual dysfunction.

Most people have sexual problems at some point in their lives, whether they have diabetes or not. And having diabetes doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have problems. But people with diabetes are at higher risk of developing sexual dysfunction (problems having sex). It is one of the complications of diabetes and is caused by high blood sugar levels, as well as high blood pressure and fat in the blood (cholesterol).

Long-term high blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels and nerves, including the nerves that supply the penis. This can limit the amount of blood that flows to your sexual organs, which can cause you to lose some sensation. This may mean that you are having a hard time getting aroused, both physically and in how you feel.

Sex may be an important part of our lives, but it’s something we still have a hard time talking about. Finding the time and support to discuss sexual problems with a health professional is one of your essential health checkups. This is the care and support you deserve, so if you are not receiving this type of care and need it, please do not hesitate to speak with your health care team. They are here to help.

Here we will tell you about some types of sexual problems in men. This information can help you manage any problems you have now or reduce your risk of developing them in the future.

Impotence –

The most common type of sexual problem in men is erectile dysfunction (sometimes called impotence). This is when you can’t get or keep an erection; there may be early signs if you start to lose your morning erection.

There can be many reasons for this, such as limited blood flow, nerve damage, and damaged blood vessels. It could also be from medications or how you feel at the time.

You may also consider therapy or counseling to help control erectile dysfunction. Whatever the cause of the problem, this can be a useful tool. And we have support to help you too, you are not alone, we are with you.

Diabetes is far from the only cause of erectile dysfunction, so there is nothing to be ashamed of. It occurs at some point in almost every man’s life and is also often caused by aging, drugs, or alcohol. So cut back on your bad habits.

Thrush – (Thrush is a fungal (yeast) infection that can grow in your mouth, throat and other parts of your body.)

Thrush is a yeast infection and is more common in women, but men can get it too.

It is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI), but it can be transmitted during sexual intercourse. Anyone can get it, but you are more likely to get it if you have diabetes and your blood sugar levels are high. This is because too much sugar in the urine provides an ideal breeding ground for the bacteria that cause yeast infection to develop.

Thrush can cause pain or itching at the tip of the penis or under the foreskin. And you may notice discharge or find it difficult to remove the foreskin. White spots on the head of the penis are also common symptoms. If you notice these symptoms, talk to your doctor.

You can prevent yeast infection by keeping your blood sugar level as close to your target range as possible, keeping your genitals clean (but don’t use scented shower gel), and avoiding tight underwear or pants.

Bottom Line –

How you feel can also have a big impact on the way you have sex. If you feel embarrassed or worried about a sexual problem, it can be very difficult and make you feel like you don’t want to or can’t have sex. If you feel comfortable, talk to your health care team for more advice and support. Or if you prefer to talk on the phone, our helpline is staffed by consultants with counseling skills who are ready to answer your questions or just listen. Whatever you need, you are not alone -we with you.
