There are many products out in the market for vaginal dryness. It is up to you to experiment and find the correct one for you. Also, donít be afraid to talk to your doctor about your problem. They may have a solution you may not have considered. There are jellies, lubricants, moisturizers and oils. See if the manufacture will send you a sample, in that way you can explore the possibilities with your partner.

Men can also experience problems with diabetes. Many men develop impotence as a symptom of diabetes. Diabetes can affect many health areas and you must understand your partnerís problem. Drugs can help alleviate, but it must be under a doctorís care. Drug interaction can be dangerous and needs careful monitoring.

Remember vaginal dryness and infections are a part of the disease. Another way to prevent infection is to void your bladder after intercourse. This will help eliminate any harmful bacteria and make sex more appealing. Itís important you take of yourself, follow your medications and exercise. Tiredness and fatigue are a result of not taking care of yourself; your body is a gauge on how you are doing. The most important thing is to listen to it and life will be more enjoyable.

Diabetes can be debilitating but with careful monitoring and care you can still have a fulfilling and pleasurable sexual life. Just review the products and medications out there and find the best combination for you. Relax and enjoy!
