Hello fellow diabetic connectors :) I have been curious to know if sex affects blood sugar? Does it make it rise? Does it make it drop? I know this is a very bold and ballsy topic but , I just want to know what experiences, if any, some of you may have had.

Like to. . .but since diabetes entered the picture 15 yrs ago sex exited. It isn't the end of life, but an adjustment.

There's always Viagra, and if that's a no no, then there is always imagination. Either way Armourer, when my time comes, I'm going with a big smile, and with good reason! Think about it?

Hey Jigsaw I like it too, I think it's important and healthy in a relationship. Just want to make sure I'm covering all my bases before, during and after :)

I agree, it is important and healthy. According to doctors that I have talked with, as long as your heart is healthy, you're good to go!

Now I'm beginning to wonder??? Very few replies to this post. Doesn't anybody indulge in sex anymore???

I find that prolonged sex makes it drop..just like any exercises. And regular exercising is a definite thing to do if you have diabetes.

Depends on the intensity and duration. Its a beautiful physical activity with another person or oneself. As physical fun, you might want to have a little snack, before, or during… it is exercise.

Like any workout, it makes mine bottom out. I have to have a snack before or drink Gatorade during. Awkward, I know…but it's that or I pass out. And then nobody wins!
