Regular Coffee Intake Not Associated with Erectile Dysfunction, Study Finds

Regular coffee consumption does not appear to affect men’s erections, but decaffeinated coffee intake might, suggests a recent study in the American Journal of Epidemiology. The caffeine, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds in coffee are thought to have several health benefits, but their role in urological conditions has been unclear. A previous study using data from…


Cardiometabolic Factors Have “Milder” Effects on Women’s Sex Health Compared to Men

An estimated 40% to 50% of women have at least one symptom of female sexual dysfunction (FSD), researchers say. Cardiometabolic factors may be associated with FSD, they added, but the association between cardiovascular risk factors and sexual health “appears milder” for women than for men. Their study, published recently in Sexual Medicine Reviews, is the…


Erectile Dysfunction More Than Doubles Risk of Heart Attack in Older Men, Study Finds

Men with erectile dysfunction (ED) are at higher risk for cardiovascular events, even when other risk factors, like cholesterol levels, smoking, and high blood pressure are considered, scientists report. ED and cardiovascular disease share many risk factors, including obesity, hypertension, smoking, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. However, little was known about ED’s role as an independent…


Experts Recommend Routine Clitoral Exams

Clitoral adhesions can cause significant pain, and routine clitoral examinations could benefit women with sexual dysfunction, researchers say. In their recent Sexual Medicine study, the research team focused on the prevalence and risk factors of clitoral adhesions. In female anatomy, the glans clitoris (the external portion that is visible and most sensitive to touch) is…


How Many Women Have HSDD?

In basic terms, hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is a persistent lack of sexual desire in women that causes distress. But HSDD is actually quite complex. The following terms are used to describe HSDD: General – It’s present most of the time. Situational – It happens only in certain situations. Lifelong – It has always occurred. Acquired – It started happening…


Three‐month posttreatment prostate‐specific antigen level as a biomarker of treatment response in patients with intermediate‐risk or high‐risk prostate cancer treated with androgen deprivation therapy and radiotherapy

Alex K. Bryant BS , Anthony V. D’Amico MD, PhD, Paul L. Nguyen MD, John P. Einck MD, Christopher J. Kane MD, Rana R. McKay MD,  Daniel R. Simpson MD, Arno J. Mundt MD, James D. Murphy MD, Brent S. Rose MD Abstract BACKGROUND Prostate‐specific antigen (PSA) measurement after definitive radiotherapy (RT) and androgen deprivation therapy for localized prostate cancer has been proposed as an…


Daily Flibanserin “Generally Safe” for Some Postmenopausal Women, Study Finds

Flibanserin, a drug used to treat low sexual desire, is “generally safe and well-tolerated” for both premenopausal and naturally postmenopausal women, according to trial results published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. More specifically, the drug is designed to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Women with HSDD lose interest in sex for reasons that can’t be readily…


Do Orgasms Change Over Time?

Like many aspects of sex, orgasms are always changing. You might have one night of passion that feels like an  out-of-body experience. You might have another that is pleasant, but not necessarily powerful. And you might have another that is just humdrum. Should you worry? Not necessarily. While it can be frustrating to see the intensity…


Effect of Linear Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction—12-Month Follow-Up of a Randomized, Double-Blinded, Sham-Controlled Study

Abstract: Introduction Short-term data on the effect of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT) on erectile dysfunction (ED) have been inconsistent. The suggested mechanisms of action of Li-ESWT on ED include stimulation of cell proliferation, tissue regeneration, and angiogenesis, which can be processes with a long generation time. Therefore, long-term data on the effect of Li-ESWT on…


Scientists Investigate Health Risks of Testosterone Replacement Therapy

New research suggests that men on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) are not at higher risk for cardiovascular events or blood clots but might be more likely to have obstructive sleep apnea. Testosterone is important for men, as it is responsible for masculine features, such as facial hair and muscle mass. The hormone also drives a…
