Yes, having lupus can mean you are tired a lot. Having Lupus does mean that you need to rest more than those who do not have an immune deficiency disorder. It also means that you must eat right and avoid those who have colds or flues. Yet, it doesn’t mean you can’t have sex. It may mean you may have to alter your sex life or work on it a bit more.
It is a natural fact that if you are tired, you won’t want to have sex as much as those who aren’t tired. However, you can adapt your life and your sex life around your new condition. It may take some practice and some consideration from your sex partner. Here are some tips to help both of you, some of which came from a fascinating article from WebMd.
Get Plenty Of Rest Before You Plan To Have Sex
It is just naturally that if a person has more energy to have sex, they will enjoy it more. It will also last longer and then both partners will enjoy it.
Decide If You Are Having Real Sexual Problems
Yes, you may have lupus and you may have a sexual problem. For instance, has sex become painful? Are you dryer in your intimate area now? Could your medications be at cause? Yes, some of the medications could be causing the dryness which could be causing your pain. Finally, do you no longer have little interest in sex? If this is a new issue, your medication can also be too blamed. One of them could be lowering your limbo.
You can begin to fix the above problems by talking to your doctor. Talk to your doctor. Don’t be bashful. Sex is a part of life. It also is good for our health. For this reason, your doctor will want to know if you are having difficulties in this area.
Set The Mood
Light some candles. Play some soft music. Allow yourself to relax. Allow yourself to enjoy your partner. Then see what happens. Sometimes if you just relax and take the time for romance, the rest will follow naturally on its own.
Enjoy Some Foreplay
Don’t rush the moment. Enjoy some time for foreplay, for some kisses and for some soft touches. Get to know your partner all over again. Cherish each moment. This will help you relax. If you are relaxed, your muscles will become less tense and you may not only enjoy the moments more, you may not hurt while you enjoy them.
See Yourself As More Than A Lupus Patient
Don’t just see yourself as a person with Lupus. Don’t just see yourself as a person who is sick. See yourself as the sexual person you are. Put on some sexy clothes once in a while. Fix your hair. Put on the makeup you love. Do what you can do to make yourself look and feel sexy, as well as beautiful. Once you do these things, you will be more ready to make love.
