Stroke can bring about physical or emotional changes that can have an impact on your relationships and sex life. For many people, it can be upsetting or embarrassing to talk about sexual issues. However, it's important to get any advice and support you need when it comes to sex after stroke.

This guide looks at the different ways a stroke can lead to sexual problems in both women and men. It explains how medication, treatments and simple lifestyle changes can help with a range of difficulties, and provides a list of organisations that can offer further advice and support.
