I hope you hear from other women who may have fears about being physically intimate while having medical conditions and/or after a long period of not having sex.

Do you have any questions we can help you with, about sex or any other matter? Let us know!

Being physically intimate would not cause any additional harm if your diabetes and hypertension are currently being treated, managed and are well-controlled within normal levels.

Do you have any specific questions or concerns?
