Sexism in Delivery of Medical Pathway for Men's Sexual & Reproductive Health

HEALTHCARE PROVIDER SHINES THE LIGHT ON MEN'S INTIMATE HEALTH IN THE UK


Sexism exists in the delivery of medical pathway for men's sexual and reproductive health issues as a result, men are suffering in silence rather than seeking medical help

Every year around the worldInternational Men's Day is commemorated on19th November.

The event aims 'to shine a spotlight on men who are making a positive difference, to focus on men's health and wellbeing issues.'

Marinos Alexandrou- the co-founder ofInternational Andrologyclinics and telemedicine companyAdam Healthis a keen supporter of the cause and is a man determined to deliver a pathway of intimate healthcare to man, sadly overlooked in this country.

He explains: "Most people don't even know what the word andrology means, but simply put, it's the equivalent of gynaecology for men.

"From puberty and throughout their lives, women are tested, screened and treated for gynaecological problems, no such pathway exists for men. It's a form of sexism.

"I want to close the gender gap and call for better healthcare delivery to treat men's sexual and reproductive health.

"I also want to break the taboo and encourage men to talk about their most intimate health issues rather than suffer in silence, and then seek medical help when they need it.

"The penis is barometer for a man's general health, for example erectile dysfunction can often be a sign of cardiovascular problems.

"The sad truth is, 1 in 3 men will experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives; 1 in 4 men will experience premature ejaculation and there is some evidence that infertility is on the increase in the UK amongst younger men."

"International Men's Dayis no better time to support men and seek societal change."
