Medications play a vital role in managing various health conditions, helping individuals lead healthier and more fulfilling lives. However, it's important to recognize that medications can sometimes come with unwanted side effects, which can impact different aspects of our well-being, including sexual health. The negative side effects of medications can cause difficulties in many areas, and it's crucial to address these concerns to ensure a holistic approach to healthcare.
