Men’s Health Problem

Men tend to be more careless in matters of health. Early signs and symptoms are often ignored until it becomes serious. A lot of diseases like hypertension, cholesterol, heart disease and even cancer may only produce minor symptoms in the early stages; therefore tend to be diagnosed when it is too late.

• Erectile dysfunction
Persistent erectile dysfunction can lead to stress, affect self-esteem and lead to relationship issues.

Erectile dysfunction can be due to physical as well as psychological problems. Physical causes of erectile dysfunction include narrowing of the blood vessels supplying the penis (such as in hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia or Diabetes), hormonal problems or injury related. Certain medications can also lead to erectile dysfunction such as antihypertensives and cholesterol medications.

The treatment for erectile dysfunction must first take into account the underlying cause. The use of Sildenafil (Viagra) has proven successful to treat erectile dysfunction in two thirds of cases.

• Premature ejaculation
Previously it was thought that premature ejaculation was all about duration. However, we soon realize that this is only part of the story.

Nowadays, a man is diagnosed to have premature ejaculation if he has no control over when he ejaculates, and the condition is causing distress to him and his partner.

If you think you have premature ejaculation, then you may want to speak to our doctors at Clique Clinic who will be able to advise you on the treatments available to help you achieve a satisfactory sex life.

• Testosterone replacement therapy
Testosterone is the male hormone produced by the testis which is responsible for all male characteristics including beard growth, chest hair, muscles development, deeper voice, sperm production, energy and stamina. It is the hormone that makes a man a man.

The most common cause of low testosterone is aging. As a man grows older, his testosterone levels start to drop, usually beginning at age 40. Certain chronic medical conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension or Hypercholesterolaemia can also cause testosterone levels to decrease.

• Hair loss
The most common cause of hair loss in men is Androgenetic Alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia causes Male Pattern Baldness.

The common factors that lead to Androgenetic Alopecia are testosterone levels, genetics and age.

• Male Infertility
Having children can be a wonderful experience, but for some, the process of getting pregnant may lead to anxiety and stress. The chances of pregnancy are affected if there are factors in either partner leading to subfertility or infertility.

Male infertility is considered to be accountable for 20% of infertility in couples and involved in 30-40% of cases. The sperm is the actual sex cell involved in fertility, whereas the semen is the liquid in which sperm cells are suspended.

A variety of parameters of the sperm cells and semen are vital in maintaining fertility. Among these parameters are seminal volume, sperm concentration, sperm motility and sperm morphology.
