These patients have different degrees of sexual dysfunction, manifested as decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction or loss of libido. In patients with chronic renal failure, the sexual function of the patients was significantly reduced, and the degree of renal function impairment was proportional to the degree of renal dysfunction. Male impotence or penis can not be sustained erection accounted for 80%. Female patients in 75% of the lack of interest in sexual life, sexual life frequency decreased, decreased or loss of orgasm, menstruation closed or scarce, breast atrophy, breast becomes soft, vaginal lubrication, vaginal mucosa atrophy.

At present, the application of adrenal cortex hormones (prednisone, etc.) and immunosuppressive agents (cyclophosphamide, etc.) is a lot of opportunities, the results will damage the gonads, resulting in more serious sexual dysfunction.
2, the influence of sexual life on glomerulonephritis
RPGN of activities have exacerbated the condition, resulting in persistent disease or risk of chronic nephritis. Patients and their spouses should be fully aware of any activity that may cause sexual arousal.
