Brief Answer: Stamlo may lead to sexual dysfunction Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. Stamlo may lead to sexual dysfunction so consult your doctor and shift to another drug like Atenolol 5 mg. You may need some tips for correcting sexual dysfunction like Enhancing stimulation. This may include the use of erotic materials (videos or books), masturbation, and changes in sexual routines. Providing distraction techniques. Erotic or non-erotic fantasies; exercises with intercourse; music, videos, or television can be used to increase relaxation and eliminate anxiety. Encouraging non-coital behaviours. Non-coital behaviours (physically stimulating activity that does not include intercourse), such as sensual massage, can be used to promote comfort and increase communication between partners. Minimizing pain. Using sexual positions that allow the woman to control the depth of penetration may help relieve some pain. Vaginal lubricants can help reduce pain caused by friction, and a warm bath before intercourse can help increase relaxation. Hope this answers your query.
