Can Patients after Kidney Transplant Have a Normal Sex Life

2013-01-08 13:40

Generally speaking, sex is better after a kidney transplant than on dialysis. As the new kidneys can function normally, the high levels of wastes in blood are removed and levels of hormone recover normal. However, a normal and good sex life can not be guaranteed.

After Kidney Transplant, the sexual problems among females such as impotence will reduce significantly. Also, women can resume their normal menstrual cycle. However, serious problems on dialysis may not be reversed. Stress or side effects of drugs may affect sex drive. Some medications after kidney transplant, such as high blood pressure and anti-rejection medications may affect sex life.

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is another common problem associated with sexual intercourse. As the patients have to take immunosuppressive medications to suppress immune system, it can increase the risk of the infections significantly, especially among women. To avoid UTI, the patients should urinate before and after intercourse and drink plenty of water.

Generally speaking, women can return fertility after a kidney transplant. Women will have high chance of getting pregnant. However, childbirth is not recommended within the first year following the surgery. If you are going to get pregnant, you should talk with your doctor firstly. Usually, both men and women who have received kidney transplant can have healthy babies. However, some women have a high chance that they might lose the baby prior to full-term or their baby will be born smaller.

After kidney transplant, if the patients can recover normal, they can return to normal sex life. Immediately after a transplant, sex would probably not damage the kidney, but it may be sensible to refrain from sex for a few weeks.
