Does Hysterectomy Affect Women’s Sexuality?

The pills don’t seem to help me with erections. Is there another option for people over 75 and fully healthy?


  • Michael Castleman says:

    Yes, there are several options:

    • A higher dose of the drug(s) you’ve tried. Talk to your doctor about the possibility and safety of taking more.
    • Don’t drink alcohol within 2 hours of sex. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant and major erection killer.
    • If you’re over-weight, lose weight. ED is often obesity-related.
    • Do you take blood pressure medication? If so, ask your doctor and pharmacist if the drug is associated with ED. Many are. If your blood pressure medication may be contributing to your situation, try to reduce your pressure by: weight loss, daily moderate exercise, and eating more plant foods—5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
    • Consult a sexual medicine specialist. Your primary care doc may not have sufficient training in the fine points of treating ED. To find a sexual medicine specialist near you, visit the North America Society for Sexual Medicine.
    • Consult a sex therapist. One near you may know a sexual medicine specialist or may have other ideas. To find one, visit the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, or the American Board of Sexology.
    • Consider having sex without intercourse. There’s a lot more to lovemaking than just intercourse. It’s quite possible to have fabulous sex and earthquake orgasms without an erection.

    I wish you great sex.
