Of course, the safety and well-being of all those attending is and remains our top priority. We are following updates on the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and recommendations from the World Health Organization.
With the WMSM due to take place mid-September 2020, the WMSM team is confidently working on the upcoming meeting in Yokohama, Japan.
We are very grateful for the ongoing support of our attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors who continue to register, commit to, and plan for the 22nd ISSM Biennial World Meeting on Sexual Medicine.
We will continue to monitor official travel advisories related to COVID-19 and update the WMSM website to keep you informed.
Climacturia - the leakage of urine with orgasm - is a common side effect of radical prostatectomy.
Researchers report that 45% of men in this situation are bothered by it. Fifteen percent of these men thought that their partner was also bothered by climacturia.
The study was published online by the Journal of Sexual Medicine in January. More details, including frequency of climacturia and amounts of urine leaked, are available here.
