Poor Sexual Health Among Women with Fibromyalgia Needs More Attention, Researchers Say
Fibromyalgia can be a significant obstacle to sexual health among affected women, according to a recent study, which underscored that a lack of understanding among partners contributes to poor sexual relationships.
Pain or stiffness related to sexual acts also tends to give rise to a downward spiral of worries and fears related to sexuality, which then further aggravates the problem by reducing the desire for, and pleasure of, sex.
Still, not all women with fibromyalgia see lost sexuality as a problem, the study, “Perceptions about the sexuality of women with fibromyalgia syndrome: a phenomenological study,” showed. The work was published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing.
