In rural areas, female friends tend to neglect sexual health awareness, and natural sexual dysfunction is easily overlooked. This may be due to regional differences and weak rural women’s sexual health awareness. Therefore, rural women rarely see a doctor because of sexual dysfunction, or may be susceptible to emotional instability or vaginitis due to female sexual dysfunction. The symptoms are covered, and the underlying problems are often overlooked. Today, let us talk about the 9 major factors that affect the sexual health of women with diabetes:
1. Infection with hyperglycemia is the main cause of vaginitis in women. Vaginitis can hinder sexual arousal and affect access. The ability to orgasm. Inflammation may also cause vaginal dryness caused by sexual discomfort, causing sexual intercourse damage can also cause repeated cystitis, repeated cystitis brings sexual discomfort, and in the long run, a vicious circle.
2, emotional depression The study found that the incidence of female depression is twice that of men, while the incidence of female diabetes is higher. In addition, intermittent or persistent hyperglycemia can also cause depression, and most women’s sexual desire is quite fragile, even a slight depression can lead to loss of libido.
3, hypoglycemia arousal, presexual intercourse, sexual intercourse and orgasm are activities that require energy consumption. Depending on the duration of sexual activity, sexual reactions and repetition of orgasm, it costs about 600 thousand. The energy of the card, if the blood sugar is normal at the beginning of sexual life, and there is not enough extra energy stored in the stomach, then the intense sexual activity may cause hypoglycemia, which not only affects sexual life, but may also endanger life. .
4, obesity and posture This may be related to sexual dysfunction is pulmonary dysfunction, the more severe the degree of obesity in women with type 2 diabetes, the worse the physical endurance, to achieve the needs of orgasm The ability to have a cardiovascular condition is also worse. Losing weight not only improves blood sugar and blood pressure, but also improves insulin resistance. It can also improve the lung function of diabetic women.
5, premenstrual syndrome. Although premenstrual syndrome is not common in diabetic women, the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle (from ovulation to the beginning of the next menstrual period) has an effect on blood glucose levels, and hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia can affect sexual function. Therefore, in the luteal phase, close monitoring of blood glucose levels is required to minimize the effect on blood sugar.
6. Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease For women with hypertension and diabetes, the effects of chronic disease on female sexual function have not attracted widespread attention. During the clinical observation process, all the drugs taken by the patient should be tested. Usually, women with type 2 diabetes need to take a large amount of other drugs in addition to the drugs for treating diabetes. In addition, attention should be paid to their new functions during clinical observation. Systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure increase at the initial orgasm. Therefore, it is necessary to assess the risk of rapid increase in blood pressure during sexual activity, and then choose to take antihypertensive drugs that do not affect sexual function.
7. The condition of the retina must be routinely examined for all diabetic patients, especially for hypertensive women with diabetes and sexual dysfunction. Ophthalmologists are prohibited from having moderate retinal diseases. Some patients have physical activity because it causes an increase in intraocular pressure. Sexual activity can increase the oxygen consumption and tension of the cardiovascular system. Therefore, the condition of the retina should be assessed and any abnormalities should be treated in time, as well as some abnormalities and sexual dysfunction associated with blood pressure.
8. The sexual desire and sexual impulses of postmenopausal women with menopause are directly related to the hormone balance in the body. In the normal menstrual cycle, sex hormones (including testosterone and progesterone) are necessary to improve mood and maintain health. Menopause is defined as menstruation stopped for more than six months, because postmenopausal causes the imbalance of estrogen to androgen, so it may lead to loss of sexual desire.
The initial manifestation of decreased hormone levels may be their reduction in insulin requirements, so premenopausal women may have symptoms of hypoglycemia. If this happens, the dose of insulin needs to be adjusted. It is beneficial to have hormone replacement therapy as early as possible in the premenopausal period.
Overview of the different stages and periods of a woman’s life, the sexual health is directly related to his physical emotions and blood sugar levels. Therefore, female sugar friends must have timely medical treatment when they have sexual disorders, and early detection and early treatment to avoid deterioration.
