Common Sexual Complaints in Conservative Societies: Unconsummated Marriages & Small Penis

Common Sexual Complaints in Conservative Societies: Unconsummated Marriages & Small Penis

Six to 17% of patients presenting to sexual dysfunction clinics in Egypt and Saudi Arabia complain of unconsummated marriages. Most cases are diagnosed to be mainly psychogenic in origin (performance anxiety or Vaginismus), and are managed through a combination of psychosexual therapy, sex education and short-term use of PDE-5 inhibitors.
Research from Egypt shows large numbers of patients presenting with concerns regarding penile size. We propose a practical approach for evaluating and counseling patients complaining of a small sized penis. Based on the current status of evidence, surgery is still considered experimental.
The prevalence rates of these 2 disorders remain alarmingly high and warrant serious public awareness and sex education programs in the Middle East and in countries with Immigrant populations from the Middle East.
