Sexual Medicine Society of North America Young Investigator Awards

Sexual Medicine Society of North America Young Investigator Awards Deadline: October 1, 2014 The Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) proudly announces “The SMSNA Young Investigator Award (YIA) Research Fellowship.” This unique program offers young investigators who are interested in sexual medicine research, in particular male erectile dysfunction, peyronie’s disease, testosterone deficiency, prosthetic surgery outcomes and research, and female sexual dysfunction the opportunity to obtain funding to support their research while engaged in qualifying research in sexual medicine. The research program will not fund research in reproductive medicine and infertility. It is the purpose of the SMSNA to increase public awareness of healthy sexuality and sexual problems, to foster the finest care for individuals suffering from sexual debility, and to encourage scholarship and research. It is our hope that this program will encourage young people to become interested in sexual medicine research and make it a focal point of their careers. The SMSNA has two funding avenues available including a YIA research fellowship which funds post-doctoral/post-residency fellows. The mini-grants will fund graduate or medical students, residents in graduate medical education training programs, and undergraduate students. Because sexual medicine is a multi-disciplinary field and sex impacts almost every aspect of human endeavor in some way, we encourage applicatio...

Authors: Rastrelli G, Lotti F, Reisman Y, Sforza A, Maggi M, Corona G Abstract Introduction: Metabolically unhealthy obesity (MUHO) is the most important preventable cardiovascular (CV) risk factor. Recently, the significance of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) as a CV risk factor has raised increasing interest. MUHO is a known risk factor for erectile dysfunction (ED); however, the effect of MHO on ED has barely been investigated. This review aims at summarizing the evidence supporting the relation of MUHO and MHO to male sexual functioning and fertility. Areas covered: An extensive Medline search on obesity an...

Abstract There has been increasing interest in the psycho-socio-relational and sexual disorders of infertility, as the risk of psychological burden among infertile men with sexual dysfunctions is significant. The purpose of this study was to develop and to validate a predictive model to estimate individual psychological burden among infertile men with sexual dysfunction and study the association between them. Comprehensive data were collected for infertile men (n = 480) who sought treatment for infertility in a reproductive medicine center between June 2012 and December 2013. Using independent predictors of psycho...

It is the responsibility of the clinician to assess for the presence of erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, or diminished libido related to hypoandrogenism among men presenting with a primary complaint of infertility. Referral to a reproductive urologist or other appropriate specialist with requisite expertise in the evaluation and treatment of such conditions is often warranted.

Infertility has been reported to have a negative effect on sexual function, especially in men. With the rapid increase in the number of men seeking fertility treatment, there is urgent to better understand the interrelationship between the fertility quality of life and sexual function. The aim of this study was to investigate the fertility quality of life (FertiQoL) and the prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE) in infertile men.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewOpioids are the cornerstone for pain treatment with significant recent increases in the number of prescriptions. Sexual dysfunction (SD) is a major side effect of opioid therapy. The goal of this review is to examine the current literature on the effects of opioids on male SD (erectile dysfunction [ED], hypogonadism, ejaculatory dysfunction) and infertility.Recent FindingsHigh prevalence of SD exists in men with opioid use as compared to the general population, with an abundance of evidence suggesting an association between opioid use and ED and hypogonadism. There appears to be a role for testoste...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMale pattern hair loss, mediated by dihydrotestosterone, is a common hair loss disorder, affecting over 50% of men over the age of 50. The 5- α reductase inhibitors, finasteride and dutasteride, are Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs for the treatment of this disorder. Several recent studies have reported adverse sexual and spermatogenic events among young men using 5-α reductase inhibitors, such as erectile dysfunction, decrea sed ejaculate volume, decreased libido, and infertility. In this review, we summarize and analyze the literature regarding the efficacy and safety of th...

Summary The role of urogenital inflammation in causing infertility and sexual dysfunctions has long been a matter of debate in the international scientific literature. The most recent scientific evidences show that male accessory gland infection/inflammation could alter, with various mechanisms, both conventional and biofunctional sperm parameters, and determine worst reproductive outcome. At the same time, the high prevalence of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation in patients with male accessory gland infection/inflammation underlines the close link between these diseases and sexual dysfunctions. The aim of thi...
