Sexual dysfunction

Recommended Posts

There's some literature on this from NPF. I just happened to read a bunch of stuff about ED in men and some sexual difficulties in women. There's issues surrounding low testosterone in men with PD. Apparently lack of dopamine in men allows prolactin to decrease the production of testosterone..and low T leads to ED in men.  I posted a question about this in ask the doctor and ask the pharmacist last week. 

 

Seems like low testosterone and ED are not uncommon in men with PD. Also, I've read some PD drugs/ dopamine antagonists increase obsessive sexual activity. 

Hope this helps. It's a sensitive subject, but we're not living in 1950.  So ask questions and get some answers. Then share with the rest of us.

FTFY.  Dopamine antagonists would be bad news bears for anyone with PD as those block dopamine receptors.  They are commonly used as anti-psychotics.  The dopamine agonists help to activate dopamine receptors and are what some of us use.  Not intending to be a grammar nazi, but it's a critical distinction.

Noah,
I'm so sorry to hear that.

Have you had a prostate exam or had your testosterone levels checked by a urologist? Usually, doctors rule out physical reasons, then they start on the psychological ones.. like anxiety, etc.

If you send me a personal message, I'll be happy to go into more details.

Shatavari is a great female libido booster. It can be combined with Ashwaghanda to boost its effects.

Macca, butea superba, xanthoparmila, Ashwaghnda, pine pollen, tongkat ali, muira puama, cnidium, cistanche, katuba bark are all natural herbs to boost male libido

Hi Noah

I hope you feel better.I always feel pretty good once out of bed.I don't seem to let PD bother me much focusing on something else seems to work.getting involved in our government has done wonders for me.Again I hope you feel better.
