I have and do suffer from a lack of libido but haven't considered doing anything about it. I was curious, however, so checked out one of Dr Boster's videos on the topic. He is a MS Neurologist and covers all topics. I just watched this one that gave me a few things to work on...always does ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbNGS2U3sT8

I don't mind googling although I fear all the popups that will start showing everywhere...this will be kind of fun and offset the incontinence ones that pop up as soon as you have searched on MS ;-0 The search brought up Addyi for premenpausal - so not for me, I fear ;-0 But- you shouldn't be afraid or embarassed to ask anything of your Dr...trust me, they have heard and seen it all ;-0 As your Doc...afterall, who else would you want to discuss it with for accurate information-

You are absolutely right you would think after birthing 4 kids I wouldn't be so shy to discuss my issues with my doctor but it's so much more difficult to talk face to face with someone but it's one symptom I really want to get over literally start having my husband back completely thanks again for wise words

Think of how to "bundle" this symptom with others if it helps launch the conversation. Or watch some of the videos with Dr Boster and Life of Seb to make yourself more comfortable. If you have close friend to have the discussion with first that may also help ;-) Life of Seb is pretty graphic and he is discussing it as a gay man...so harder to relate to but it underscores the impact on the MS community. They talk more of sensation than libido...but hopefully it helps frame the discussion in your mind to discuss with your Dr...many GPs don't understand MS well enough and many neuros only understand the classic MS issues that may concern them more like ON and balance...but there are other important aspects of our life and these two guys are pretty frank in their discussion of it. I have also found good information in the various MS society groups and forums. Good luck, go get 'em tiger ;-)

Viagra or any ED drug sadly doesn't work for women, its unfair I know..... Don't take my word it, just trust marketing, if it did work, marketing would tell you..... it would be flying off the shelves for women like hot cakes and they would make even more billions more.... any stuff your reading is nonsense and placebo type stuff...... Also worth remembering Viagra was discovered by mistake, its prostate drug that was under test that inadvertently resulted in lots of hard on's.... safe ones.... imagine the shareholders reaction.... a lot of similar stories with common drugs today..... which only serves to highlight what they know about what they are testing to behind with lol.... In a word - Guinea Pigs...
