Bedroom Problems in MS: Treating Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is all too common amongst both men and women with Multiple Sclerosis. In this video my friend Dr. Ketul Shah, an expert Urologist with keen insights into MS, shares several treatment options for both men and women suffering from sexual dysfunction.
Regarding male erectile dysfunction he reviews the use of oral medications, vacuum pumps, penile injections and penile prosthesis (depending on how serious you want to get about ED).
Dr Shah shares that one of the most common types of female sexual dysfunction he sees in women with MS is called "hypoactive sexual desire disorder" (i.e. low libido). He reviews a newly FDA approved drug specifically to treat this. He also reviews the benefits of supplementing testosterone in menopausal women. Thank you Ketul Shah for teaching us!

Dr B- I know all cancer cases are unique and a patient has to discuss with their own personal neuro, but in general- for someone just diagnosed with breast cancer (who was on Tecfidera) are there any options going forward? Are immunosuppressants out from here forward? Thanks in advance !
1 in 7 women get breast CA, and unfortunately I've had several wonderful women I help take care of develop breast cancer. During BrCA treatment, if chemo is given, we often don't have to treat if the chemo can penetrate the CNS. If we need to treat with an MS DMT during pregnancy I'm normally able to identify something with the oncologist (copaxone is always safe for example). In my experience, after the BrCA has been successfully treated we can start back up on a one of many highly effective DMTs. Everything is a risk/benefit but immunosuppression isn't OFF the table, and we can find something that works.
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is a condition of a male’s penis that prevents it from getting an erection from sexual intercourse. However, many male patients get this condition from many pre existing health problems. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or the NCCAM, released that ED affects nearly 30 million males in the United States alone. In most patients, certain drugs can single handedly treat the condition. Below, is a list of different antibiotics used to treat ED and what side effects you may get, as well as what other treatments your doctor might prescribe you.
