The Impact Sjögren's Sydrome Has on Sexual Functioning and Intimate Relationships


Do you want to take part in a research study being conducted at Northumbria University, to help understand the impact Sjögren’s Syndrome has on sexual functioning and intimate relationships?

There has been very little research conducted that explores the impact Sjögren’s Syndrome has on an individual’s sexual functioning and intimate relationships with their partner. When we look at research conducted with patients with other autoimmune rheumatic diseases, for example, rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus, we find evidence to suggest that sexual functioning may be impaired in some individuals that are diagnosed with an autoimmune rheumatic disease. As Sjögren’s Syndrome is the second most common autoimmune rheumatic disease, it is imperative that we conduct research in this area to determine if this is an issue that individuals with Sjögren’s Syndrome face.
