How to Talk About Sex and Ankylosing Spondylitis


Have an honest, open talk with your partner, one in which you share your desires as well as any limitations you’re feeling. Let your partner know how your diagnosis is affecting you at the moment. Don’t try to project into the future. There’s nothing to be gained from trying to predict how the condition will affect you in five or 10 years. Approach sex as a collaborative, creative, problem-solving team and focus on what you would each like to do to stay sexually active.

If your partner is distressed by your diagnosis or by talking about new sexual positions and techniques, he or she might need some time to adjust to the necessary changes. It may help for your partner to speak privately about concerns with a sex therapist or marriage and family therapist in a confidential setting.
