What Every Man Must Know About BPH
One of the most common conditions a man can get affecting his prostate is benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. BPH is an enlargement of the prostate putting pressure on the urethra making it difficult to urinate along with other symptoms associated with it. It becomes more prevalent as a man ages with the risk of BPH increasing each year after a man turns 40. By age 60, more than half of all men will have BPH and by age 85, about 90 percent of men have this condition. How will a man know if he has BPH? Most of the signs and symptoms of BPH are urinary related. The prostate gland, the size of a walnut, surrounds the urethra...

Trump Takes Propecia, A Hair-Loss Drug Associated With Mental Confusion, Impotence
In a snicker-worthy disclosure by President Donald Trump’s longtime personal physician, readers of The New York Times learned Thursday that the leader of the free world takes a small daily dose of the drug finasteride ―  otherwise known as Propecia ― which is used to treat male-pattern baldness.  The revelation by Dr. Harold N. Bornstein that the president uses a prostate-related drug to grow scalp hair was not previously known publicly, according to the Times story, and appears to explain why Trump has a very low level of prostate specific antigen, or PSA, a marker sometimes us...

Ben Stiller's Essay About Prostate Cancer Is Moving But Not Scientific
Ben Stiller went public with his prostate cancer diagnosis in an essay on Medium on Tuesday. The comedian was diagnosed in 2014 and has been cancer-free since treatment that year.  He credits a controversial screening test ― the prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, test ― with saving his life: Taking the PSA test saved my life. Literally. That’s why I am writing this now. There has been a lot of controversy over the test in the last few years. Articles and op-eds on whether it is safe, studies that seem to be interpreted in many different ways, and debates about whether men should take it all. ...

Why Women May Experience Pain During Sex
Sex is usually thought of as a pleasurable experience culminating into a cascade of sensual and enjoyable feelings. But for some women this is far from their reality. Sex may hurt and when it does, it can have a profound effect on their relationship with their partner. It is estimated between 30 to 50% of women will experience some sort of painful sex in their lifetime. Pain during the point of penetration is the most common symptom and is often described as being sharp or burning. Another common symptom is pain felt deep within the vaginal area once penetration has occurred. Other painful symptoms women may feel include ...

BOSTON (CBS) – New research may give men dealing with early-stage prostate cancer more confidence in how they decide to treat the disease. Two new studies out of the United Kingdom suggest the chances of survival after 10 years is 99%. And that’s regardless of whether a man has surgery, undergoes radiation, or chooses to take a watch and wait approach. Often times, treatment can lead to some severe side effects, including sexual dysfunction and bowel and bladder problems. Right now about half of men with early stage prostate cancer choose monitoring over treatment. Scientists say after 10 years, treatment may p...

Around 1 in 10 UK young people report distressing sex problems
Conclusion The survey results show that sexual problems are relatively common among young people. The findings are perhaps not surprising, but suggest an unmet need for advice and support around sexual function and enjoyment, as well as the more traditional concerns of preventing unwanted pregnancy and infections. Sex education is not compulsory for non-maintained schools in the UK, although pressure is mounting to make it so. Much traditional sex education focuses on contraception and safer sex practices. There have long been calls for sex education to also include discussions of sexual pleasure and what makes for a happ...

Natural Remedy for Erectile Dysfunction
Last winter, I was trekking the countryside of Uganda. I was there to study their local healing traditions, and to learn more about the natural cures they use for disease. What I wasn’t expecting to find was a powerful aphrodisiac. It’s an extract from the roots of the eriosema kraussianum plant called bangalala. I learned about it from Dr. Josiah Kizito. He’s an expert in natural healing and the use of African healing plants. He’s based in South Africa. My good friend in Uganda, Prince Dr. David Mawanda, introduced us. I’m so glad he did.

Study Defends Antidepressant Use In Pregnancy Despite Birth Defect Risks
While SSRI antidepressants are arguably still the most consumed drug class in the US, sales peaked in 2008 and have declined by four percent every year since, according to Research and Markets. There are many reasons for declining SSRI sales from unwanted side effects like weight gain and sexual dysfunction to "Prozac Poop-out" in which patients develop tolerance and the pills quit working. Still, a major reason for declining sales are SSRI's strong links to suicide and birth defects. In 2004, the FDA added "Black Box" warnings to SRRIs, highlighting suicide risks and the need for close monitoring of...

Metabolic syndrome linked to sexual dysfunction in older women
(Elsevier Health Sciences) In a new study published in The American Journal of Medicine, researchers looked at the role metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease play in postmenopausal women's sexual health. They found that metabolic syndrome was strongly associated with decreased sexual activity, desire, and sexual satisfaction and that specific cardiovascular events were linked to reduced rates of sexual activity, but not with sexual desire or satisfaction. The study also showed that coronary artery disease was more prevalent in women with low rates of sexual activity. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Schizophrenia
Search Google for cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and you’ll find this: “A type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression.” On the surface, it seems unlikely that this type of therapy would be associated with people suffering from schizophrenia, a serious mental disorder affecting approximately one percent of the world’s population. But it may be an effective supplementary therapy to pharmacological treatment for those with the disorder. Post-hospital ca...
