REVIEW
Pratap R Chokka, Jeffrey R Hankey
Sexual dysfunction (SD) is pervasive and underreported, and its effects on quality of life are underestimated. Due in part to its bidirectional relationship with depression, SD can be difficult to diagnose; it is also a common side effect of many antidepressants, leading to treatment noncompliance. While physicians often count on patients to spontaneously report SD, treatment is optimized when the clinician instead performs a thorough assessment of sexual functioning before and during drug therapy using a standardized questionnaire such as the Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale (ASEX)...

Symptomatic hydroceles are commonly treated with surgical repair. They are associated with sexual dysfunction in the aging male. Patients who are not fit for surgery often undergo aspiration and sclerotherapy of the hydrocele. There is a range of sclerosing agents used in the literature. I performed a literature search to assess whether one sclerosant was better than the others. STDS is the sclerosing agent with the best cure rate after a single injection and low side effect rates. The cure rates of sodium tetradecyl sulphate (STDS) after a single aspiration and injection were 76%...

Although there are high rates of sexual problems and sexual dysfunction in adulthood (Mitchell et al., 2013), little is known about the circumstances under which problems are first experienced. A growing body of research addresses prevalence of problems in sexual functioning among adolescents and young adults, yet little is known about the meanings that young people give to these experiences or how they deal with them. We used content analysis of qualitative interviews with 53 heterosexual, sexually active Canadian adolescents (ages 18 to 21) to explore their perceptions of the sexual problems in functioning they had experienced and the strategies (if any) they used to address them over time...

Cognitive and somatiform changes occur with ageing and are often attributed to late-onset hypogonadism. Testosterone replacement in older men remains controversial despite increasing evidence of symptomatic and clinical benefit in relation to improvements in sexual dysfunction, muscle mass, and diabetic control. The controversial areas related to cardiovascular safety and risk of prostate cancer need to be considered.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the most important disorder after premature ejaculation for sexual activity in men. Vardenafil Hydrochloride (VH) is an oral therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. VH oral disintegrating tablets (ODTs) have been prepared by freeze drying technique to improve its dissolution profile and the overall clinical performance. Dapoxetine Hydrochloride (DH) was added to the best three formulae of the prepared VH ODTs to treat premature ejaculation. All the ODTs formulae were evaluated for weight variation, friability, drug content, in-vitro disintegration time, wetting time, and the dissolution study...

Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) is a common condition that typically affects women older than 50 years and decreases the quality of life. Weakening of support structures can involve all three pelvic compartments and cause a combination of symptoms, including constipation, urinary and fecal incontinence, obstructed defecation, pelvic pain, perineal bulging, and sexual dysfunction. The causes of PFD are complex and multifactorial; however, vaginal delivery is considered a major predisposing factor. Physical examination alone is limited in the evaluation of PFD; it frequently leads to an underestimation of the involved compartments...

Sexual health is an important consideration for young adults with cancer; however, oncology healthcare providers are often not equipped with strategies to approach these problems in a systematic way. To address this gap in adolescents and young adults (AYA) care, a one-day international Sexual Health Symposium was held before the Global AYA Cancer Congress (Edinburgh, December 2016). The goals of the symposium were to (1) provide a forum, where international AYA experts had the opportunity to share their knowledge regarding AYA sexual health and (2) develop a guideline for healthcare professionals to screen for and intervene on sexual health issues...

INTRODUCTION: Both overt and subclinical hypothyroidism are often accompanied by sexual dysfunction. Despite improving male sexual functioning, levothyroxine treatment does not always restore all its aspects. The aim of this study was to compare male sexual functioning and depressive symptoms between men with hypothyroidism receiving levothyroxine/liothyronine combination therapy and men receiving levothyroxine alone. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study population consisted of 21 young levothyroxine-treated men with clinical symptoms of hypothyroidism in whom serum thyrotropin and thyroid hormone levels were within the normal limits...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in women is a complex syndrome. Pain sensation and intensity often do not correspond with the identified lesion location but are felt elsewhere, leading to muskuloskeletal and myofascial disorders and sexual dysfunction (SD). Although physical aspects are prevalent, they are often underdiagnosed and undertreated due to lack of understanding regarding its origin and distribution. Frequently, patients experience pelvic pain as psychological distress resulting in physical complaints, leading clinicians to prescribe medication or surgical intervention to correct or alleviate these symptoms, often with insufficient results...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of carbamazepine (CBZ) and sodium valproate (VPA) monotherapy on sexual functions, sex hormones, and semen analysis and quality in male patients with epilepsy. METHODS: A total of 59 male patients with epilepsy, of which 30 were on VPA monotherapy and 29 were on CBZ monotherapy, were included in the study between January 2015 and March 2016. A control group was established with 30 healthy males. Luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), prolactin (PRL), free testosterone (fT), estradiol (E2), sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) levels and bioactive testosterone (BAT)/bioactive estradiol (BAE), and BAT/LH ratio were studied in groups...
