Here are some ...: Possible, but I would still advise to have a comprehensive evaluation on general health, lifestyle, sex profile, drug use, etc. by stressing the quality, quantity, and sequence of events on all symptoms plus tests such T-level if testes are soft and "small" or being obese. So doing will define what may cause your current sexual concerns and reasonably propose Rx. That can be done within reach.

Yes: The horomones that regulate breast milk production can result in dry and atrophic vaginal tissue. This can markedly decrease the sex drive. Exhaustion from around the clock feedings also can have a dramatic impact on sex drive.

Do genetics play a role in the severity someone may experience a bacterial infection?

Yes: Genetics definitely play a role in people's immune system response. Genetics also play a role sometimes in physical characteristics that make people more or less susceptible to certain infections (small eustachian tubes for example would make you more susceptible to ear infections). However, the resopnse is multifactorial and probably not all due to genetic influence.

Varies: This varies dramatically with other signs of vascular illness. It is certainly possible to have erectile dysfunction in the 30s and 40s. Cigarrette smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood pressure medication, peripheral vascular disease and heart disease can all hasten the onset of organic erectile dysfunction.
A 24-year-old female asked:

Im having abnormally thick vaginal discharge with no odor. I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) in for about 4 months now. Never experienced this much discharge. Is this normal?

Dr. Allison Urrutia
Obstetrics and Gynecology 14 years experience
Yes: Progestrone only methods of birth control can change the consistency of your vaginal/cervical discharge. During the luteal (or second half) of your cycle, Progesterone cause the mucus to become thicker (preventing more sperm from entering the uterus). Thus, it is normal to have thicker discharge.
