When we’re talking about “sexual health” we’re covering a wide range of topics—fertility, sexual intercourse, genital health, and STIs.
Because it’s such a vast topic, it doesn’t come without misconceptions and misinformation. Today, we’ll be covering some of the most common myths about men’s sexual health.
With that in mind, let’s get started:
Chlamydia Won’t Affect Fertility
If you get tested and treated for chlamydia, the chances of it not affecting fertility are high. However, if you leave it untreated, not only can it transfer to your partner, it can also affect your fertility (as well as your partner’s.)
The STI is treated with antibiotics and fifty percent of men who contract chlamydia will not have any symptoms. This is why it’s imperative to get tested every few months if you are sexually active.
Men Can’t Get “Thrush”
This is another myth because “thrush” is a yeast infection. Yeast infections are commonly associated with women but little do people know, men can get it too.
Yeast infections start because of moist, warm conditions. Therefore, it’s crucial you dry yourself properly after taking a shower. Although it’s not an STI, yeast infections can spread through sexual activity.
Symptoms of thrush include:
- Thick, white discharge
- Redness, itching and burning on the penis head or under the foreskin
- Pain during urination
- Pain during sex
- Foul smell
- Difficulty pulling the foreskin back
If I Use a Condom During Sex, I Won’t Catch an STI
Despite being designed to prevent transferring of STIs, condoms are not a foolproof way of preventing STIs.
This is because STIs such as Herpes and Syphilis can be passed through skin-on-skin contact alone. This is why it’s important to get tested every few months and take precautions.
Erectile Dysfunction Cannot Be Treated
Living with ED is extremely difficult. There are a number of reasons why ED develops, ranging from physiological to psychological reasons.
While lifestyle changes have been recommended, taking supplements like VigRX Plus can also help.
VigRX Plus is a male enhancement pill that is made from organic and natural ingredients. It has been tested by the The IIEF (International Index of Erectile Function), which deemed it safe for consumption. The organisation also found the VigRX Plus significantly helped men with ED.
The results could be seen in 60 days. It also helped regulate blood circulation, increased frequency of orgasms, and helped with penile girth length and strength.
