It’s not uncommon for our patients to have lots of questions about sexual health. But these questions aren’t always addressed during the routine office visit. The patient might not feel comfortable introducing a certain topic. Or, the question might not even occur to the patient until the visit is over.
To help these patients – and other members of the general public – the ISSM website has a new Q & A feature. This section offers sexual health information for the lay public in a question-and-answer format that is easy to understand.
The section addresses some of the most common questions asked by patients about sexual health. Topics include information on diagnosis, causes, treatment and other special concerns. We’ll be expanding this section every week.
So far, the following topics have been started:
- delayed ejaculation
- erectile dysfunction
- low testosterone
- penile prosthesis
- penis enlargement
- Peyronie’s disease
- premature ejaculation
- prostate cancer
- retrograde ejaculation
- spinal cord injury
In upcoming weeks, look for questions and answers on these subjects:
- NSAIDs and ED
- marijuana and male sexual health
- diabetes and ED
- ED drugs and premature ejaculation
The Q & A section of the website will be a valuable resource you can recommend to your patients. We also hope that other health consumers will visit the site when they research their sexual health concerns.
What questions do your patients ask? Our Q & A team welcomes suggestions from ISSM members. If you have an idea to contribute, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
