Sex, intimacy and relationships (booklet)

Publish date: 
Jan 2015

Although sexual difficulties are common among the population as a whole, MS can bring about particular problems for both men and women.

Not everyone with MS will experience sexual problems and, as with other MS symptoms, it is impossible to predict who will be affected and how long symptoms may last.

This booklet suggests techniques that can improve communication and understanding, and help you to adapt to new dynamics within your relationships. Many people have successful and satisfying relationships despite experiencing sexual difficulties.
