Feb 20 - Impact of Rare Diseases on Sexual Health

Sexual development is a crucial aspect of human life, but within this intricate process, there exists a category of rare diseases affecting sexual health that pose unique challenges. These infrequent and complex disorders significantly impact physical, hormonal, and reproductive aspects. Within the umbrella of rare diseases, these are even more complex, unravelling scientific, medical, and socio-psychological dimensions. This post sheds light on a few such rare diseases:

Ehlers–Danlos syndrome manifests the risk of the premature rupture of membranes, cervical incompetence, and uterine prolapse during pregnancy.

Marfan syndrome- Mitochondrial disorders can affect several organs, including the heart and muscles, leading to an increased risk of foetal growth restriction, preterm delivery, and stillbirth.
