Premature ejaculation is a sexual problem that occurs when a man ejaculates too quickly after penetration and before he is ready. This leads to the penis being limp and often results in the couple being distressed and troubled during sexual intercourse.
Getting help for PE starts with a precise Premature Ejaculation Diagnosis which will allow the Physician to prescribe appropriate medications for Premature Ejaculation Treatment. This medication is often taken 3-4 hours before planned intercourse and helps lengthen the time between stimulated arousal and ejaculation.
Erectile Dysfunction is a problem that affects men, increasingly more so as they age. This leads to performance issues in bed and is an important aspect of sex. As such ED is not often discussed for concerns of embarrassment. One may therefore not know where, or how to get help. There are many causes of ED and getting a good outcome in treatment would require a holistic assessment of one’s symptoms and an accurate Diagnosis of Erectile Dysfunction.
Advances in treating ED have come a long way. From the traditional Erectile Dysfunction Medicine to Erectile Dysfunction Injections and now more recently the Painless ED1000 Electro Shock Wave Treatment*.
Painful erections or painful sexual intercourse experienced by men are often caused by a tight band adhered to the base of glans of the penis to the foreskin. Even with circumcision, some men still have this condition. Diagnosis of Frenulum Breve is made when the foreskin is unable to retract fully on the shaft of the penis because of this tight band limiting the foreskin’s movement.
Surgical Treatment for Frenulum Breve (Penile Frenulectomy) is the treatment of choice and is done in the clinic under local anaesthesia. After an injection to numb the area, the tight band is cut and released. Stitches are removed after 1 week and full recovery takes about a month.
The prostate gland is about 4cm, the size of a walnut and lies between the bladder and the penis. Its main functions are to release fluids that are the components of semen. When the prostate gland gets infected and inflamed, it is called prostatitis. Treatment of Prostate inflammation (Prostatitis) involves an accurate and comprehensive Diagnosis of Prostate inflammation (Prostatitis) to determine the offending cause and subsequently commencing a course of targeted antibiotics.
The other conditions of that could affect the are the unusual enlargement of the prostate gland. This enlargement can either be benign or malignant. The Diagnosis of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia which is a non-cancerous and benign condition is often done through a full clinical history and examination. Almost one in two men over the age of 50 have an enlarged prostate. Based on the symptoms experienced, Treatment and Management of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is commenced with medications and sometimes surgical interventions. On top of this, Prostate Cancer Screening is done for men 50-75 years old with a urine test looking for PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels. A higher than normal reading is an indicator to undergo further tests such as a prostate biopsy to rule out any malignant (cancerous) conditions.
Discovering blood in the sperm (Haematospermia) is an unusual symptom. It can either be a tinge or copious amount of blood. It is there most commonly in men who have undergone a prostate procedure. It is most often not a sign of cancer. However, diagnosis of Haematospermia would involve a thorough investigation of one’s sexual and urological history. This would involve blood, urine, semen tests and even imaging scans to determine the cause of the problem. The subsequent Treatment of Haematospermia would then tailored to the cause of the problem.
STD Symptoms such as burning, discomfort when passing urine, new rashes, boils or sores, unknown discharge, blood in the urine or sperm; all warrant an STI Screening and Diagnosis, especially if there was a new sexual encounter. STI Treatment and Management is critical, because if left untreated can lead to irreversible damage and in some cases to major organs like the heart or brain.
Blood STD testing is similar for both males and females and covers infections including HIV, Hepatitis infections, syphilis and Herpes. Anonymous HIV testing is available at our Robertson Walk clinic.
