More common than you might think
Symptoms like premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction affect up to 30% of men. Often couples suffer in silence. There’s a lot of pushy advertising for treatments out there, which are often unproven and ineffective. Don’t fall into that trap. Modern treatments available on prescription can be very effective to help men achieve and sustain erections, and also reduce the impact of premature ejaculation.
Do not feel at all ashamed or shy about bringing it up with your doctor. You’ll find once you’ve broached the subject the stress levels come down straight away as you realise things can be done to help. As professional GPs we will treat the issue with compassion, respect and in the most effective way.
