Multiple Sclerosis and Women’s Sexual Health

Multiple Sclerosis and Women’s Sexual HealthEarlier this year, scientists reported that almost two-thirds of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) have some degree of sexual dysfunction. And new research has investigated the effects of MS on women’s sexuality.

The November 2018 study, published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, was an analysis of nine previous studies related to MS and female sexual dysfunction published between 1999 and 2018. Almost 1,500 women participated in all, and just over half of them had MS.
