Conditions: Spinal Cord Injury

Overview - Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury can affect a man’s sexuality both physically and psychologically. While the majority of men with spinal cord injuries experience some changes in sexual function, the type and level of injury both play a role on the impact that injury has on a man’s sexuality. After injury, physical changes can include: the inability to attain or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction), ejaculate or orgasm. Men can also experience emotional changes that can affect their sexuality.
