    Diabetes regularly takes away the sex drive of men and causes Erectile Dysfunction so it is highly likely that it is taking away the sex drive of women too and from the same causes. The sexual organs require the functioning of nerves and also blood flow, both of which are impacted on by Diabetes.

    Worries me a bit that we suddenly have a series of anonymous questions, after years of having none, with one set of questions around "why do us MEN have sex problems", with a simultaneous set of questions around vaginal issues and another on general sex problems. Can't be coincidence, but questions are apparently from a man and a woman. Perhaps anonymous can clarify
