The Challenges of Sex and Young Onset Parkinson's Disease

Being vocal

An incredibly important tip is for couples to constantly communicate with each other. Whether it is about sexual interactions or about how they are feeling on a particular day, proper communication can help increase intimacy and understanding.

Keep in mind that certain positions may be too difficult for an individual suffering from Parkinson’s disease, or a partner may have trouble sleeping at night; communicating these needs will help couples accommodate to each other’s concerns and create clear strategies for future difficulties within the relationship.
