THE LOSS OF SEX DRIVE IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE

The journal of sexual medicine [2009] 6 (4) : 1024-1031 (Kummer A, Cardoso F, Teixeira AL) Complete abstract

Sexual dysfunction is a frequent but neglected problem in Parkinson's Disease, as muscular problems are usually seen as the characteristic symptoms. However, nearly two thirds (65.6%) of people with Parkinson's Disease have been found to suffer a loss of sex drive. Over 42% of those men with Parkinson's Disease also complained of erectile dysfunction. Ageing, female gender, lower education, and depression were most associated with decreased sexual desire. Decreased interest in sex was not associated with antidepressants. The neurological features that were most associated with a greater loss of sex drive were predominance of motor symptoms on the left side of the body, autonomic dysfunction, and severer Parkinson's Disease.
