"Problems only with the male partner account for 30 percent of all infertility problems," explains Dr. Karen E. Boyle. "In addition, 20 percent of infertility problems are due to both a male and female problem. This means that 50 percent of infertility is due to some form of male factor."
"Male factor infertility is commonly due to dysfunction of the testis, blockage of the testis, problems of hormones or genetics," says Dr. Karen E. Boyle. "There are correctable reasons for male fertility like varicocele and sometimes problems with fertility reflect an even more serious medical problem like testicular cancer. For these reasons, all men with abnormal semen parameters require evaluation by a male infertility specialist."
Women's Sexual Health
"Women's sexual health is an all too commonly overlooked area of medicine. Many physicians don't ask about concerns their female patients may have and many patients don't address their sexual concerns," according to Dr. Karen E. Boyle. "Patients either don't think there is anything which can be done to help or sometimes they don't feel comfortable opening up to their doctor. The most common concerns include decreased sexual desire, problems of lubrication, arousal and orgasm, as well as sexual pain."
Male Sexual Health
"Issues of erectile dysfunction, diminished sexual drive or libido, orgasm and ejaculation are extremely common among men and help is available. Erectile dyfunction can be caused by medication, surgery, or other disease states. We believe that penile heath reflects overall health," says Dr. Karen E. Boyle. "Often, diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholestrol and heart disease first present as sexual dysfunction, which is why in addition to improving erectile quality, evaluation is essential to optimizing overall health."
"The 30 percent of men who suffer from sexual dysfunction are most commonly treated with medicines taken orally like Viagra and sometimes medicines need to be delivered directly to the penis. When these things fail, erectile dysfunction can be treated surgically with the placement of a penile prosthesis," explains Dr. Karen E. Boyle.
"A woman's body changes following pregnancy, weight loss and with age. The most private area of a woman's body, her vagina, also changes. Women now are empowered and have options to improve their ability to have gratifying sex," says Dr. Karen E. Boyle. "An outpatient surgical procedure - vaginal rejuvenation - can enhance sexual gratification by addressing the changes which have occurred. The inner and outer diameter of the vagina can be reduced or tightened and the perineal body strengthened to improve the amount of friction a woman experiences during intercourse."
