The Relationship Between Parkinson's Disease and Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual problems including Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie's disease are very common with Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the central nervous system starting with the brain that affects movement. The condition starts gradually and then get worse over time. Early symptoms are a tremor in one hand and then stiffness and slowing of movement. This then effects the way you walk a slurring of speech and the expressions on your face.

Navigating Sexual Challenges in Parkinson's Disease

Many men still are able to continue with a sexual relationship but with greater difficulty. Some of the challenges facing Parkinson disease sufferers include:

  • Stiffness and slowness, making sexual activity more difficult
  • Tremors and involuntary muscle movement which increase with sexual excitement
  • A reduced sex drive with fatigue
  • Depression due to the condition, changes in household role and body image

Treatments for Peyronie's Disease and Parkinson's Disease

Some drugs increase sexual desire, whilst others have the opposite effects.

A range of treatment options for Peyronie's disease exist which can be viewed on our treatment options page. The gold standard is focused shockwave therapy. Focused Shockwave Therapy (FSWT) emits acoustic waves at 1500 metres a second to break up the Peyronie's disease plaque. This treatment is pain free and you can resume your normal routine immediately after treatment.
