Sexual dysfunction

      I had GBS (descending type), 7 years back at the age of 31 years after having second shot of Hepatitis B immunisation (with in 6 weeks). I also had ascending type of GBS at the age of 3). I am almost normal now. But having problem in having sustained erections and also of premature ejaculation. This problem was not there before GBS. Can any one suggest suitable exercises to mitigate the problem ?

      The dysfunction is something you should discuss with a neurologist and with a urologist. Without a thorough medical history and exam, it would be difficult to recommend any particular course of action. There is the possibility of nerve damage, for which exercises might be of little benefit. Your physicians are likely to ask if your dysfunction coincident with GBS or did it occur later, even if only by a month or two? They are then likely to ask, if it was coincident, did it improve in line with your overall recovery and has it gotten worse lately?

      Godspeed in finding a resolution.

      IMO fatigue is an obvious factor. Have you tried having morning sex? You might have more energy then. Also, can you be ready for action after you ejaculate? If so, go for seconds, you are likely to last longer.

      I’m post 10 years and have sexual dysfunction. But mine is very different from yours. FIRST, try Viagra for erections. Works great! I believe that most of us have problems ejaculating. This is because of the nerve damage I believe. You can try an antidepressant like Zoloft for your concerns. It will work after taking it for about a month, but most doctors I’ve found don’t know much about this.

      Good luck and be happy,

      Thanks for all the inputs, though i was expecting some more. Do not want to use drugs and was late in realising that i have this problem since do not have any partner. Went through web and starting Kegel exercises for strengthning Pelvic muscles from this week. Will keep posted on improvements.

      Has anyone got experience of Miller Fisher syndrome. I had Miller Fisher in June this year. I am still within the (typical) six month recovery period but at the moment have lost sexual desire and capability. Are there any males recovering or recovered from MFS who can advise me on this?
