Women can breathe sigh of relief when using vaginal estrogen to treat menopause symptoms
(The North American Menopause Society (NAMS)) News flash....hot flashes aren't the only bothersome symptom of the menopause transition. Many postmenopausal women also experience sexual dysfunction and urinary problems that don't require estrogen pills but, rather, can be alleviated by vaginally administered estrogen. A new study shows that, despite previous misperceptions, this treatment option is not only effective, but also safe. The study results will be presented during The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Oct. 11-14. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

New shot for men and women
Today I want to tell you about a quick, painless procedure that will put the spontaneity back into your sex life. And you don’t have to take a pill and then wait 30 minutes or more… I’m talking about platelet-rich plasma, or PRP for short. I’ve used PRP in my patients to heal sports injuries, aching joints and surgical wounds. It’s better than a facelift to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. But PRP also works if you’re having trouble in the bedroom. More than a third of men suffer from sexual dysfunction. And 40% of women do too. I’m talking about everything from erectile dysfuncti...

Go for the gold in bed
Olympic athletes have a secret that most mere mortals just don't get. And it's the same secret that can make you a gold-medal superstar in bed.  I'm talking about oxygen.  Olympians understand that every cell in your body is designed to burn oxygen. Cut back on oxygen and all cellular processes slow down. You start to become tired or short of breath. So, high concentrations of oxygen in every cell in your body makes the difference between a gold medal and an "also ran."  It's the same for you in just about every part of your life. With plenty of oxygen, your body pulses with energy....

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...

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 ...

Two new studies out of the United Kingdom suggest the chances of survival after 10 years is 99%.

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...

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.
