Normally the nerve impulses to the vasculature in your genitalia should not be affected by either agent. Both conditions have been reported with both medications but in tiny numbers. Most often the problem is fixable and unrelated. I suggest you see a urologist and inform your neurologist of the situation. ...Read more

Physiologically okay: I probably wouldn't look too much into the BCRL in your case, but rather any associated anxieties you may have. I see that you are on depakin chrono, which suggests to me that you may be suffering from some psychologic issues, many of which can affect libido, usually lowering it. Depression, anxiety, or even having lots of things on your mind may be much more contributory. ...Read more
