Although research about sexual dysfunction in women with diabetes is limited, one study found 18 percent of women with type 1 diabetes and 42 percent of women with type 2 diabetes experience sexual dysfunction. II Autonomic neuropathy, damaged blood vessel, and a reduced blood flow are often to blame and can cause decreased lubrication and vulvar dryness as well as pain or discomfort during intercourse.

There are a variety of treatment options for diabetes; however, the sexual effects are often not addressed.  To help moisturize and soothe the vulva, diabetic patients can use NeoGyn Vulvar Soothing Cream. The cream helps restore vulvar skin without estrogens. NeoGyn relies on a scientific formulation of cutaneous lysate, a novel ingredient discovered in Switzerland after years of wound healing research.
