Understanding the Effects of MS on Your Physical, Cognitive, and Sexual Health

Updated on December 14, 2020
Medically reviewed by
Aaron Boster, M.D.

In his most recent live Q&A, multiple sclerosis specialist Dr. Aaron Boster tackled some of MyMSTeam members’ toughest questions. He started at the top with great advice on what he calls the “up theres” — stabilizing and improving cognition, mood, and energy levels. Then he moved to the “down theres” — encompassing bladder control, bowel issues, and sexual function. Along the way, Dr. Boster dispensed important advice on how to communicate with your doctor and your partner. He clearly explained medical concerns and gave actionable, practical advice — including a heartfelt vibrator recommendation.
