Cholesterol

ASK THE DOCTOR

"About six months ago, my husband, 56, started taking medication to control his cholesterol.Can this have an effect on his sexual performance? He asked his doctor, but his only response was 'sometimes'. This is the only medication my husband is taking, and it seems to have decreased his interest in sex. Thank you."

Cholesterol medication is a rare cause of decreased sex drive. You should explore other possible causes, including erectile dysfunction, with a doctor who has more to say than "sometimes".
