Hypovitaminosis D is associated with sexual dysfunction in apparently healthy women and with erectile dysfunction in men with the presence of concomitant disorders. This study was aimed at investigating sexual functioning and depressive symptoms in young men with low vitamin D status. The study included 15 apparently healthy men (18-40 years old) with vitamin D deficiency (group A), 16 subjects with vitamin D insufficiency (group B), and 16 men with normal vitamin D status (group C). All participants of the study completed questionnaires investigating their sexual function (the International Index of Sexual Function-15-IIEF-15 for heterosexual men), as well as the presence and severity of depressive symptoms (Beck Depression Inventory-Second Edition-BDI-II)...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) has a significant negative impact on the quality of life of the patients and their partners. The sequence and regimens of ED therapy have become quite evident since the advent of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE-5). However, there have been continued basic research of the efficacy and safety of these agents and studies aimed at new therapeutic goals. In recent years, the attention of researchers has shifted into a wider range of issues related to the personalized PDE-5 therapy, including sexual satisfaction, psychosocial variables (e...

Female hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is a multifactorial sexual dysfunction disorder characterized by a decrease in sexual desire and personal distress. HSDD occurs in naturally occurring postmenopausal women or secondary to oophorectomy. Multiple studies have assessed the use of transdermal testosterone (TDT) as a management option for patients with HSDD. Our aim is to assess published studies using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) framework for the quality of evidence regarding testosterone use as a short- and long-term therapy for HSDD...

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is the most prevalent female sexual dysfunction (FSD) and its bio-psychosocial multifactorial etiology justifies its multifaceted treatment. In Persian Medicine (PM), the weakness of the main organs (heart, brain and liver) is one of the important causes of lack of sexual desire; hence, their strengthening is a priority during treatment. Melissa officinalis is one of the medicinal plants with tonic characteristics for the main organs in PM and was used for treatment in this study...

Testosterone (T) is deeply involved in every step of the male sexual response. However, the occurrence of sexual disorders cannot be automatically related to a decline in T levels. In fact, this relationship is complicated by organic, relational and psychological factors, which can independently impair sexual function. For example, it is recognized that erectile dysfunction (ED) can result from vascular damage as well as from low levels of T. T therapy (TTh) can improve sexual function but meta-analyses show that it improves erectile function only in men with ED and overt hypogonadism...

This article reviews clitoral structures, their functions and how they are activated during the stages of female life. The paradox that occurs is that different procedures of activation are claimed by some to favor 'noxious outcomes' to the physical and psychic health of women who use it to achieve sexual arousal/orgasm with or without penile vaginal intercourse. A number of the difficulties and inconsistencies in relation to these claims are explored. The proposed justification for the 'noxious outcomes' is that 'evolution' punishes sexual arousals other than by coitus because it is the only one that leads to gene propagation...

Spina bifida has traditionally been regarded as a pediatric health issue with little regard to adult consequences of the disorder. The congenital neurologic and urologic anomalies, as well as sequelae of bladder management, can have a profound impact on adult male sexual function. Abnormalities in testicular descent, development, and function; fertility; penile sensation; erectile function; ejaculatory function; and orgasmic function are common. Prostate cancer has been diagnosed in men with spina bifida, but little data are available to guide screening, diagnosis, and treatment efforts...
