MEN’S HEALTH TOPICS
Urinary Tract Infection in Men: a UTI is a bacterial infection that may affect the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra.
|Symptoms:||urinating more often than normal, painful or burning urination, leaking urine, pressure in your lower abdomen.|
|Treatment:||specific antibiotics for a Urinary Tract Infection can be administered and improve the frequency of which you feel the need to urinate, and can also lessen the pain of urinating.|
Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction is characterized by not being able to get and keep an erection long enough to engage in sexual intercourse. It is common for there to be a psychological component to erectile dysfunction.
|Symptoms:||problems getting an erection, keeping an erection, and reduced sexual desire.|
|Treatment:||There are many medicinal and psychological options for treating erectile dysfunction. The degree to which you are affected will determine which type of medication a health care provider may suggest.|
Premature Ejaculation: Premature ejaculation is when a man consistently ejaculates before he and his partner would like. Occasional instances of this are not reason for concern, but regular premature ejaculations should be evaluated by a health care professional.
|Symptoms:||ejaculation that usually occurs within one minute of vaginal penetration, being unable to delay ejaculation, consistently having feelings of depression, stress, and inadequacy causing you to avoid sexual activity.|
|Treatment:||Like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation often has a psychological component that improves performance when addressed. Certain medications and techniques can also be helpful in improving performance.|
Testicular Self-Exams: A testicular exam is done to examine the appearance and feel of the testicles. When done regularly, they can be used to find abnormalities and identify potential issues.
“PrEP” or Pre-exposure prophylaxis is a prevention option for those at a high risk for HIV and consists of daily HIV medication that lowers the chances of becoming infected.
