All kidney patients are concerned about such a question that whether they can have sex or not. Many patients consult us this question. In this article, we will discuss this topic with you.
Is sexual life allowed among kidney patients?
Actually most of kidney patients are allowed to have sex. Sexual life does not cause damage on kidneys directly. Thus, moderate sexual life does not aggravate your kidney condition especially for patients with good kidney function. If patients are only in inflammatory reaction period, it is not a problem for them to have sex.
Which kidney patients are not allowed to have sex?
1. Uremia patients
Because lots of creatinine will be produced by muscle movement and can not be excreted from your body, serum creatinine level will increase further and threaten other organs.
2. Malignant hypertension
If your hypertension is over 80/100mmHg, you are not allowed to take any strenuous exercise such as sexual life.
Kidney cysts or PKD are easy to get burst. This is very dangerous and cause acute kidney failure. Sexual life is not allowed.
4. Patients with active illness
If your urine protein and occult blood relapses frequently, you are not allowed to take sexual life. Because your condition is in active period, at this time your kidney is weakest and you should avoid damage to renal parenchyma.
5. Urine Tract Infection (UTI)
Kidney disease will increase the risk of UTI especially for women patients. Sexual life at this time will worsen infection.
