In sexual medicine, it is important to take into account the needs and expectations of the patient, and especially of the couple
Now, we know that cardio-vascular diseases (angina pectoris, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, myocardial infarction, diabetes) are responsible for sexual disorders in men (erectile dysfunction) but also in women (loss of vaginal lubrication with disorders of the pleasure and of the orgasm). Therefore, take charge of the sexual disorders, of course, means to improve the quality of their sexual life, but also to treat and take care of the factors of cardiovascular risk in our patients (treatment of high blood pressure and any heart problem, screening and balance of diabetes, treatment of hyperlipidemia, smoking cessation or alcohol, weight control, recovery of sports activity). In fact, it has been medically proven that the serious cardiac events were often preceded by a sexual disorder, including, for man, erectile dysfunction. The corollary is that the patients, but also doctors, need to be attentive to sexuality .
