Sex and MS

An MS diagnosis often occurs at an age when sexual activity is peaking and is of particular importance in both established and emerging relationships/lifestyles. The profound impact of a diagnosis can raise many questions for people living with MS.

The good news is that there are strategies to help manage problems should they emerge.


MS Australia is proud to have collaborated with the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation and other member organisations on this helpful animated video resource.
