Screen Sexual Dysfunction Patients for LUTS, Researchers Advise
The next session of the ISSM Webinar Series, "Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction," will take place on Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 2 p.m. UTC.
Drug-induced sexual problems are a focus of interest for researchers, who try to understand the mechanisms and prognosis of such conditions, for clinicians, who need to clearly state to their clients what side effects can be expected from the use of a certain medicine, and for patients taking medications with sexual side effects.
Post-SSRI sexual dysfunction is a new field of research and a focus of great interest for all people who act on both sexual medicine and mental health.
ISSM President Annamaria Giraldi will open the session, and Alan Shindel and Marco Gonçalves will serve as the moderators. The program will cover these topics:
Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD): History and Relevance (David Healy)
Explanatory Processes and Diagnosis of PSSD: What Do We Still Need to Know? (Cobi Reisman)
A 30-minute Q & A session will follow the two presentations.
A recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study reports that men and women with sexual dysfunction may have higher rates of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
The study, which focused on 1,056 patients in Colombia, is one of few conducted in Latin America.
Researchers found that 53% of the sexually active men had erectile dysfunction (ED), and 39% of the sexually active women had female sexual dysfunction.
The data showed that participants with sexual problems were more likely to have LUTS than those without sexual dysfunction, the authors said.
