Professor Santosh Kumar, Department of Urology, PGI: “The ideal way to go about sexual problems is to consult a urologist or a gynaecologist, who are qualified doctors.” Prof. Kumar spoke at the awareness programme held on Sunday to mark World Sexual Health Day.
According to statistics, it was reported that India is quickly emerging as the world’s impotence capital. Research shows that 35% of men under 40 experience sexual difficulties.
Every year on September 4, the World Health Organization (WHO) observes this day to raise public awareness about people’s sexual health. Prof. Kumar emphasised that a male patient should see a urologist. In contrast, a female patient should see a gynaecologist for sex-related issues.
According to Prof. Kumar, patients typically deal with three kinds of sexual issues: dysfunction, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and reproductive health cases.
He said it was “surprising that 42% of the men look for less expensive treatment options other than medicines that doctors have prescribed, which prove to be detrimental for them.”
According to Prof. Kumar, there is a lot of misunderstanding about impotence because 66% of women and 75% of men believe that being old is a major contributing factor.
According to statistics, this factor causes 28% of women to break up with their partners. He added that he added that sedentary behaviour, smoking, age, obesity, excessive drug use, and stress are risk factors for impotence.
Prof. Kumar proposed penile implant surgery as a safe and effective treatment for patients with impotence or erectile dysfunction who do not respond to medication.
