Male Partners and Endometriosis

Three-quarters of the men whose partners had endometriosis said their sex lives had changed. Fifty-eight percent said they were very satisfied with their sexual relationships, compared to 74% of the partners of women without endometriosis. Intercourse, oral sex, and petting were also less frequent for the endometriosis couples.

The authors recommended that couples seek sexual counseling if they feel endometriosis is interfering with intimacy.
