On the occasion of “World Men’s Health Day” on October 28, the first “Sexual Health Management Center” in Guangdong Province was established at the Guangdong Provincial Reproductive Hospital.
Only 12% of men are willing to face sexual health issues head on
Sexual health is not only the absence of disease, dysfunction or frailty, but also a state of physical, emotional, psychological and social health related to sex. The Sexual Management Center aims to further improve the sexual health level of people of childbearing age, solve sexual physiological problems, adjust sexual psychological state, promote harmonious relationship between husband and wife, and comprehensively promote the healthy development of the general public.
Sexuality is a symbol of human reproductive capacity. A large number of studies have shown that sexual ability is closely related to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, endocrine diseases or tumors, and sexual health will affect physical health, mental health, and interpersonal relationships.
With changes in lifestyles, the sexual attitudes of people of reproductive age around the world have also undergone dramatic changes. The data show that from 2000 to 2015, the number of asexual men in my country increased by nearly five times. Nearly 15.4% of young men and women are not in the mood to have sex because of work pressure. According to a quantitative survey conducted by Bain, in China, more than half of men over the age of 20 have experienced poor status, and only 12% of them choose to face it directly.

On the day of the unveiling, the Sexual Health Management Center organized an andrology team to provide free clinics for patients. All patients who visited the clinic were exempted from registration fees, and they provided a free routine semen examination for newly diagnosed patients. At the scene, many patients asked the experts for consultation, and the experts carefully answered their confusions by asking the patients’ medical history in detail, and at the same time gave professional guidance and suggestions for the next step of diagnosis and treatment.

“Clinically, many erectile dysfunctions are caused by psychological factors. Some patients do not have organic lesions after testing. Through targeted psychological counseling and treatment, they can gradually restore their confidence and return to a normal state.” Deputy Director of Andrology, Guangdong Reproductive Hospital Chief physician Liu Huang introduced that outpatient clinics are mostly patients with sexual dysfunction who need fertility, and scientific instrument testing and standardized diagnosis and treatment will help them realize their fertility dreams.
In addition, sexual health management is a long-term process. Guangdong Reproductive Hospital has the only human sperm bank in the province, and many patients with azoospermia and cancer are treated for fertility preservation. The Sexual Health Management Center will also serve these patients, in addition to addressing their fertility needs, it is also committed to improving their quality of life. Zhang Xinzong, for example, many patients with azoospermia also have decreased androgen levels, manifesting as sexual function problems such as low libido and erectile dysfunction; radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment of male tumor patients will also lead to decreased androgen levels, and they all need long-term Targeted treatment and sexual health management.
Solve the problem of fertility and advocate “same treatment of husband and wife”
“Co-treatment of husbands and wives will be a major feature of ours. Combined with some clinical situations we encounter, for patients in need, the Sexual Health Management Center will organize andrology and gynecology experts to conduct joint consultations with husbands and wives,” Zhang Xinzong said. Low and lack of sexual experience are also one of the main reasons for infertility, and both husband and wife need to be treated together at this time.
The Sexual Health Management Center of Guangdong Reproductive Hospital integrates medicine, teaching and research. It advocates the concept of “sex is the whole body, and fertility is leading”. Adhering to the spirit of “gender health and equal treatment of men and women”, it explores sexual health and general health, fertility and sexuality. The most cutting-edge direction in the field of capabilities.
“The experience of infertility diagnosis and treatment shows that about 5% of infertility patients are caused by ejaculation dysfunction. After the professional guidance of clinicians, the satisfaction of sexual life and ejaculation function have been greatly improved. Some patients It was possible to get pregnant successfully.” Zhang Xinzong was impressed by a couple who had not conceived after three years of marriage. There was no abnormality in the external hospital examination, and the cause of infertility could not be found. After inquiring, Director Zhang found out: when they first got married, the woman was unwilling to cooperate due to pain in the couple’s life, and she ejaculated when she touched the vaginal opening. After professional guidance on sexual life, the patient successfully became pregnant less than three months after returning home.
The Guangdong Provincial Reproductive Hospital once admitted a couple, who complained that the man had erectile dysfunction, resulting in no pregnancy for 6 years. When the gynecologist checked the woman, she found that her hymen was still intact. It was precisely because of congenital hypertrophy of the hymen and tight hymen ring that there had been a sexual disorder after 6 years of marriage. Han Liwei, chief physician of the gynecology department, performed hymenotomy and plastic surgery for her, which not only solved the problem of sexual life, but also had the possibility of natural conception after surgery.
In an interview with Aoyi News, Zhang Xinzong revealed that in the past experience of receiving medical treatment, female patients are more willing to seek medical treatment, but in terms of the difficulty of inspection, the inspection process for males is relatively simple and straightforward. “Men can basically judge their fertility status through semen examination, while women’s examination items are many and complex, and most of them are invasive, so we still advocate that men can take the initiative to do a semen examination first.”
