The aim of this review is to discuss the psychological impact on sexual health among diabetic population and association of diabetes with sexual problems and psychological problems. Diabetes is known to cause multiple medical, psychological, and sexual dysfunctions. Impaired sexual function in men is a well-documented complication of diabetes. Although women have the same risk to develop diabetic complications. This review indicates that sexual problems cluster with self-reported physical problems in men, and with psychological and social problems in women. This has potentially important consequences for the planning of treatment for sexual problems and implies that effective therapy could have a broad impact on sexual health in the diabetic population. Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, sexual health, sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, orgasmic dysfunction
