Sexual Health

Sexual health includes the health of the functions around male and female reproductive systems, as well as the hormonal systems that support them. These systems are responsible for sexual arousal, erectile function, prostate function and menstruation, among others.

The Prostate is a gland within the male reproductive system that is located just below the bladder. Chestnut shaped, the prostate surrounds the beginning of the urethra (the canal that empties the bladder). The prostate is actually not one but many glands, 30-50 in number, between which there is abundant tissue containing many bundles of smooth muscle. The secretion of the prostate is a milky fluid that is discharged into the urethra at the time of the ejaculation of semen.

Erectile Dysfunction (or male impotence) is a sexual dysfunction characterised by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis sufficiently for satisfactory sexual performance. Erectile dysfunction is indicated when an erection is consistently difficult or impossible to produce, despite arousal. There are various and often multiple underlying causes, some of which are treatable medical conditions.

Menstrual Disorders include Amenorrhoea (an abnormal absence of menstruation because it has never started or it has stopped), Menorrhagia, (an abnormal heavy bleeding at menstruation), and Dysmenorrhoea (a painful menstruation, typically involving abdominal cramps).

Menopause refers to the end of menstruation that typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 50 years, and is due to decreased ovarian function. Physical symptoms include hot flushes and sweating. Psychological symptoms include fatigue, irritability, insomnia, lack of concentration, depression, memory loss, headache, anxiety and nervousness.
