What is Sexual Medicine?
Sexual Medicine is a medical discipline that helps people with concerns and problems with their sexuality.
Sexual Medicine addresses the impact of health on sexuality. Many common medical problems affect sexuality, including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, hormonal problems, neurological disorders, bladder, prostate and gynaecological problems, depression and anxiety. Drug treatments, surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy might also affect sexuality.
Sexual Medicine also addresses the impact of sexuality on health. For example, people who have had a heart attack, stroke or treatment for cancer are frequently concerned that resuming sexual activity might not be safe for them. The Sexual Physician can provide a complete assessment of risk and offer evidence-based advice on these matters
