High Blood Pressure Harms Women's Sexual Function, Too
WebMD News Archive
High blood pressure has been known to affect sexual function in men, but
new research shows it also may cause sexual problems for women.
Women with high blood pressure are more likely to report a decrease in
vaginal lubrication, less frequent orgasm, and more frequent pain during
intercourse, compared to women with normal blood pressure.
Experts advise anyone with sexual problems to talk to their physicians, as
it may be related to a variety of medical conditions.
