Right to information
What you need to know ,however ,it’s that it your right to receive all information on the treatment that you are getting .It is also your right to refuse treatment if you feel you may not cope with the side effects, and to seek alternative treatment .When sex-related side effects happen, there can be severe social consequences including gender-based violence, separation and even divorce. Failure of the health worker to give information in this area is therefore gross negligence.
There are medicine that take away sexual urge in both men and women .There are others that affect sexual stimulation so that in women ,there is no lubrication while in men , there is no erection .some drugs also prolong the duration needed for organism to happen .
Rarely , drugs may increase sexual urge .Because of the way we are socialized ,most health workers may not give this information :sex is generally not popular topic for discussion irrespective of one’s profession (except for sexologists) .Patients also choose to suffer in silence and consider it embarrassing to go back to the doctor and explain their problem.
