Men with lupus have the same sex drive and sex life as men without lupus. However, some men can face a mild erectile dysfunction due to peripheral neuropathy. Pain can also be due to this cause. Also, erectile dysfunction can be the side effect of a drug you are taking. The pain can also be due to erythema associated with lupus. However, if you have any problem with erection, it is important to undergo a dopplar study of the blood vessels of the penis and scrotum. Often the cause is due to a blood vessel—like a clot or narrowing etc. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
