Sexual health is a largely ignored, tabooed topic in the Indian scenario even in the 21st century. Important aspects such as knowledge about safe sexual practices, transmission of diseases through sex, unplanned pregnancy, women health, and impotency are largely ignored. At Center of Diabetes and Allied Sciences, we address individual sexual health through discreet, confidential appointments. Some of the services we offer include:
Screening for sexual health:
Various disorders affect the sexual health of an individual. Loss of interest in sex (reduced libido), painful sex, erection problems, ejaculation problems, orgasm problems are all common yet not addressed adequately since the patients are embarrassed to visit a sexual health expert. Most of these problems have easy solutions and the early it is redressed the better.
Screening for sexually transmitted diseases:
Most people consider that diseases transmitted sexually present with symptoms. Unfortunately most sexually transmitted diseases do not present with specific signs and symptoms and most disease, often by the time diagnosis is made it is too late. Diseases like chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, genital herpes, syphilis, trichomoniasis, genital warts are the primary STD’s. Every disease is rightly diagnosed with specific tests.
Education regarding safe contraception is necessary for preventing unwanted pregnancies. Providing choices best suited for every couple is the ideal goal of a successful contraception and family planning. From contraceptive pills, condoms, cervical rings, to intra-uterine devices, all are made available at the centre.
Despite taking adequate measures, at times, sex can result in conception. Emergency contraception can prevent such episodes. Information regarding emergency contraception, its use and safety are provided at the center.
Gay and lesbian sex problems:
Gay men and lesbian women face significant psychological and physical health problems in their sexual life. Suicides, substance abuse, societal discrimination are all important aspects in sexual health. Although not considered currently under unnatural sexual practices, certain practices followed by same-sex individuals might result in significant health issues like anal tears, disease transmission of organisms such as G. lamlia, shigella, campylobacters due to increased feco-oral methods of sexual practices. Offering knowledge regarding the health aspects of same gender sexology becomes the prime duty of healthcare physicians to prevent the new sector of gay, lesbian people from becoming prone to health hazards.
We provide pregnancy services for couples who are trying to conceive, offer adequate support through coordination of the woman’s menstrual cycle with intercourse timing for maximum chances in pregnancy. We also provide pregnancy confirmation services through urine-dipstick methods, ultrasound scanning and gynaecological services for continuation of the pregnancy.
