Many people know that STD clinics in Singapore provide treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HIV. But did you know that the STD clinics also treat other conditions that are affected by sexual health? STD doctors are often trained in the clinical understanding of sexual organs, so it is no surprise that they can also diagnose and prescribe medicines for related conditions. If you are facing any symptoms that are affecting your sexual organ or your sexual performance, you should consider seeking an opinion from a qualified STD doctor. Here are two conditions that you probably didn’t know can be treated by an STD clinic.
In Singapore, erectile dysfunction is a condition that typically affects older men aged 50 years and above. As men age, they may have trouble maintaining a prolonged erection during sex. If this happens frequently for you, you may need medical intervention to help improve the quality of your sex life. As erectile dysfunction could be caused by a variety of factors, your doctor will likely recommend a blood test and a urine test to see if any biological factors affect your ability to have an erection. Treating the underlying physical health condition is an important factor in curing erectile dysfunction. If there are no physical anomalies, your doctor may prescribe some medicines for you if he deems that they can help with your ability to have and maintain erections. These include medicines that enhance your sexual performance. The medicines also help the blood vessels in your penis to relax, thereby increasing overall blood flow into the organ.
Similar to erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation can be remedied with medical guidance from STD doctors. Premature ejaculation refers to a condition where a man ejaculates too soon during sexual intercourse with minimal stimulation to the penis, generally within a minute after penetration. This can cause problems within sexual relationships, especially when the man is unable to fully satisfy his partner. Often, men who experience premature ejaculation feel emotional distress over the relationship and may be afraid to initiate sexual encounters due to potential embarrassment. Premature ejaculation can affect men from all ages and races. Visiting an STD doctor for premature ejaculation treatment can be a wise thing to do. Doctors may prescribe medications that affects serotonin in order to reduce sensitivity of the penis, and prolong the time before ejaculation. There are also topical medications that can numb the penis and reduce stimulation. Consulting an experienced STD doctor about these problems would likely be the first step in helping alleviate these symptoms and lead to an improved sex life.
While STD clinics will always be important for STD check-ups, do not forget that STD doctors can also help with any sex-related medical issue.
