Hi Vadgesters!

Many of you have been asking questions about how to have better sex lives – and this question is no different. When you have a reproductive disorder, it may be difficult to function sexually due to the symptoms. Even without any reproductive issues, sex can be made better through dietary change. Today, let’s review how improving eating habits can affect your sex life for the better. Feel free to listen to my latest podcast to hear me talk about it (please don’t laugh at my cracking voice). I appreciate you all for tuning in and trusting me with your questions!

Eating for a Better Sex Life

How Does My Diet Affect My Sex Life?

Our bodies function based on the nutrients they are able to draw from the foods we eat. This is true in the gym when trying to get fit, as well as in the bedroom while trying to get intimate. If your body is not energized, it can affect your ability to perform sexually. Disorders such as obesity can affect blood flow to the genitals, making erection and vaginal arousal more difficult. Feeling discouraged by lack of arousal can kill the entire mood for both partners.

PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and Endometriosis often share symptoms that can make having sex (or doing anything) extremely difficult. While consulting with your doctor – it is a good idea to begin researching diets created specifically for these disorders and making those changes when you can. Often times, the nutrients in certain fruits and vegetables can nourish the body to help create resistance to disease and alleviate many of the symptoms without/alongside medication. It’s similar to beginning a workout regimen and deciding to eat better at the same time. You could eat poorly and see the same results, but they will come much slower – if they ever show up at all.

 

How Can I Start Making Changes Now?

Eating For A Better Sex Life

Eat Better. Feel Better.

It’s easy.

  • Eat Better. Add more fresh foods to your diet. Limit processed foods when you can. If you stop somewhere for lunch, look at the menu and pick something wholesome. Once you pinpoint your specific issue, research diets that can help with it. Everything is not copy and paste; some foods may suppress a hormone and stimulate another. Having a better sex life can be as simple as lowering your blood pressure and sodium intake.

First Response Multivitamins

  • Get some vitamins in your life. Check your local health food store or pharmacy for multivitamins based on your needs. First Response has teamed up with VitaFusion to create gummy multivitamins for Reproductive Health as well as Pre/Post Natal Health. If you’re not inclined to pills, gummies may motivate you to take your multivitamins daily.

 

  • Get Active. Did you know that working out releases endorphins that make you feel good (and often horny)? It doesn’t matter how much you do – start off to the best of your abilities and work towards more. Not only may you see a decrease in weight, but you may feel an increase in libido (sex drive).

 

  • Keep track of your changes. Get a cool notebook and write down what you’ve changed this week. If you notice anything different (feelings, changes in appearance/mood, etc.) – write it down. Bring this information to your doctor and discuss your concerns. Not only does it look good to be informed, it feels good.

 

  • Stay positive, but realistic. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you may not see change overnight. While diet change may not cure your disorder, it can and will improve your quality of (sex) life overall.

 

  • Remember, you are not alone. Take some time and look for online groups of people working towards similar goals. Facebook often has groups made for support, and it helps to know that within your personal journey – others share similar sentiments.
