Sexual dysfunction and POTS

Recommended Posts

About a year ago, DINET had the opportunity to co-fund a research project being done by Dr. Svetlana Blitshteyn related to sexual dysfunction and POTS.  Some of you may have even participated in the study or the initial questionnaires.  The study has been completed and is now published.

Sincere thanks to all of you who responded to the questionnaire or took an interest in the study. It is a piece of research that, in my opinion, deserves further focus.

Here is the link to the full research - https://www.mdpi.com/2077-0383/13/8/2274  

There are so many worthwhile studies related to POTS and other forms of dysautonomia.  This particular study was so important because sexual dysfunction is a symptom that is not discussed but is certainly one that affects mental health, family relationships as well as physical health.  It is another part of life that this disorder impacts and it needs to be included in diagnostic evaluation and treatment going forward.  

We hope to be able to participate in more studies like this one and we hope you agree that it is worthwhile way for DINET to continue to support the dysautonomia community. 

As always, we love hearing your thoughts.
