Sexual Health Problems

Speeding Ejaculation

Men, if you find you can’t ejaculate with your partner, use this programme to help you overcome the probable issue – of over-control.

Period Problems

Aptly named ‘the curse’, periods can make your life a misery. We examine the causes of these menstrual problems, and the ways in which they can be relieved.

Thrush

Watch out for the causes of thrush and, with sensible precautions, you can help yourself keep it at bay.

Pelvic inflammatory disease

Estimates suggest that up to 15 per cent of women will have suffered from an attack of PID by the time they are 30 years old. Few, however, realise the consequences of letting the condition go untreated.

Endometriosis

The pain of endometriosis can occur during sex, around the period or throughout the cycle. Even after treatment, it is one of the commonest causes of infertility. We consider the treatments.

What is wrong if I have never experienced female orgasm?

Almost all women are able to experience orgasm, whether through masturbation or through plenty of foreplay followed by penetrative sex. There are, however, a number of reasons why a woman might find she is unable to experience orgasm. The problem is often psychological, but there might be physiological causes.

The STIs you need to know about

Sex is a normal and healthy part of life but, because of the intimacy involved, it can also spread Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Despite, or maybe because of, the focus on HIV/AIDS in recent years, the safer sex message is getting lost, and people of all sexualities are exposing themselves to infection – including with HIV. Any exchange of bodily fluids is potentially risky, and for infections like herpes, even skin-to-skin contact can be a risk.
