The quality of sexual function and desire in aging male will change. Normal age-related change in erectile function will affect sexual desire. These symptoms include a decrease in blood flow to the scrotum and penis; reduced tensing of the scrotal sac and delayed erection. Penile sensitivity also decreases with age. Aging contributed to the process of erectile dysfunction through increased oxidative stress–one of which is due to induced eNOS uncoupling, endothelial dysfunction in the penis, structural changes of the artery, and reduced level of sex hormones in circulation. Many of these changes can be related to or exacerbated by several causes.
These include lifestyle factors as well as cardiovascular, psychosocial, and psychiatric causes such as depression. All of which are prevalent in the aging population. Several patients with reduced erectile function due to aging, by many practitioners, were given the complex nutrition from the extract of Channa striata (Snakehead fish) in the form of capsule.
Channa striata has been proven as a good natural source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, good quality proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Malay communities consider its energy-restoring properties and consume it as a diet supplement for the elderly. Channa striata contains fatty acids such as linoleic acid and aspartic acid with medium leveled antioxidant activity, which is quite potent in defence against the oxidation of omega-3. These fatty acids might also play role in the circulating sex hormones level–considering that fat is a component of these hormones. The amino acid arginine, which can also be found in Channa striata, is also one of the precusor of NO that is needed to increase cGMP and induce smooth muscle cell relaxation and arterioles dilation.
Complex nutrition in aging men is needed to fulfil nutrient requirements and as a support in improving sexual function. This nutrition though, is not an alternative to medical treatments, but rather an ancillary support in the recovery and improvement of health quality in aging men. The prescription of this complex nutrition has quite significant effect in improving life quality of patients and overcome the sexual problems. It is yet important to take note of each patient’s nutrition requirements and more researches are needed to reveal the benefits of this complex nutrition.
The condom has been used to prevent unwanted pregnancy as well as sexually transmitted diseases throughout human history since Crete or ancient Egyptians era. In Asian countries, ancient Chinese used the silk made condom with oil lubricant and Japanese also used the leather made hard condom with dual purpose of disease prevention and penile supporter.
As in the Mediterranean and most of the other parts of the world, Korea in the Neolithic era was a matriarchal society. The so called Hong San culture of Ancient Korea, now in north-eastern China, proves it with many remains including the ‘Goddess of Fertility’. However, with the establishment of political community and patriarchy in 3 millennium BC, it changed to a male dominant society. During the Three Kingdom and Unified Shilla Period, Koreans enjoyed relatively free sex and intermarriage was not strange, especially in the Royal Family of Shilla. Unlike in China.
Aim: Studies have shown sexual dysfunctionality in 20-25% of infertile couples. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age and is a leading cause of infertility. Infertility may alter a woman’s sexual expression by causing or exacerbating sexual problems as a consequence of the diagnosis, investigation and treatment of infertility. Adequate sexual function can contribute to the success of fertility treatments. This study aims to assess sexual function in infertile and PCOS women in relation to their age, body mass index and duration of infertility. The prevalence of Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) and PCOS in infertile women and its correlation with infertility was also evaluated. And to find the relationship between Female Sexual Dysfunction and testosterone levels in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
The ultimate aim of Andrological medicine is the study of the maleness, creating the health and well-being of human male. So that, even though the fundamental study of andrology is very essential, we should finally reach to clinical andrology.
Studies on Exogenous Stem Cells (SCs), owing to their regenerative capacity, represent one of the most promising methods to restore Erectile Dysfunction (ED). However, insufficient source, invasive procedures, ethical and regulatory issues hamper their use in clinical applications. The endogenous SCs/progenitor cells resident in organ and tissues play critical roles for organogenesis during development and for tissue homeostasis in adulthood. Even without any therapeutic intervention, human body has a robust self-healing capability to repair the damaged tissues or organs. Therefore, SCs-for-ED therapy should not be limited to a supply-side approach.
This study was designed to examine the relationship between sexual activity, sexual behaviour, sexual problems, lifestyle and sexual knowledge among sexually active women and men. We describe measures of sexual partnerships, sexual practices, sexual problems, attitude towards sex and sexual knowledge. We compare measures of sexuality for those 18-73 years old, by age, separately for men and women using sexual function questionnaire, IIEF-5, FSFI and Sexual complaints screener for women. We evaluated the prevalence of sexual activity, behaviours, and problems in a sample of 400 adults.
The aim of this presentation is to explain the curative treatment of male psychogenic sexual dysfunction by sex therapy and psychotropic drugs (without PDE5 inhibitors). Normal sexual response is restored and patient remains pill free after 10 to 12 weeks of treatment with weekly or fortnightly session of sex therapy and psychotropic drugs. This reduces the PDE 5 inh dependency and non-responsiveness later on. My experience as sex therapist treating male psychogenic sexual dysfunction since 1996 in Muslim society like Pakistan will be shared. Sexual dysfunctions are either predominantly psychogenic or predominantly organic.
This presentation, "Responding to the needs of consumers with complex trauma histories a consumer perspective" focuses on the needs of adult survivors of child abuse, highlighting the frequent
