Sexual and Reproductive health tips for men

Sexual health is a source of great concern for many men. Yet, most men do not talk to their nurses or doctors about their sexual health concerns. But as men, we really need more information about our sexual and reproductive health to help with our sexual health issues, no matter our age.

Here are a few sexual reproductive health issues you should know about:

• Sexual dysfunction: Sexual problems that cause a man to ejaculate early or late, lose sexual interest or have problems getting or keeping an erection.

• Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Sexual diseases that you get during sexual intercourse that cause pain when peeing, discharge from the penis or swelling around the penis area.

• Prostatitis (pross-tuh-TYT-uhss): Swelling of the prostate that causes pain in the penis especially during peeing or ejaculation as well as difficulty peeing.

• Prostate Cancer: Cancer that affects a gland in a male's reproductive system causing difficulty in peeing, frequent peeing, blood in the pee or pain when actually peeing.

• Testicular Cancer: Cancer affects the balls, causing a lump to grow on one ball and appear to be bigger than the other.

The good news is that it is very easy to detect these infections and sexual reproductive health problems and treatment can often help sexual problems. You just need to visit the nearest clinic and talk to a nurse or doctor about your concerns.

Hi there, thank you for your question. If you meant Is sex dangerous?or  Why can sex be dangerous? 

Having sex without a condom can be dangerous because it can put you at risk of  HIV, STI or unplanned pregnancies. You can check out our Health Section  to find out more about HIV and STI's .

Hi there, thank you for your question. Men can orgasm differently with different partners. There are many reasons why your partner may be experiencing this such as nervousness, as well as certain medication that can cause this. Remember it is important that you use a condom every time you have sex to prevent yourself and your partner from getting an STI, HIV and unplanned pregnancies.

What Is Medical Male Circumcision (MMC)?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 July 2017 12:03

Hi  sfiso22, medical male circumcision (MMC) is the surgical removal (cutting away) of the foreskin. 



B-Wise User sfiso22 8 July 2017 11:02

How painful is the MMC procedure?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 July 2017 12:01

Hi sfiso22, the pain is different for different people, but for most people it’s not serious. Local anaesthesia controls pain during the surgical procedure, but this is injected through a needle, which itself is uncomfortable for a few seconds. Men often report that they feel a little sore or uncomfortable in the first days following circumcision. Over-the-counter pain medication, or anything your doctor prescribes, can help with this.

Can a man put 2 or 3 condoms on at once for more protection?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 July 2017 12:01

Hi sfiso22, there is little evidence about the benefits of using 2 or more condoms. It is generally not recommended because of concerns that friction between the condoms could increase the chance of breakage.

What are the benefits of circumcision?

B-Wise Expert Expert 8 July 2017 11:49

Hi anonymous, there are many benefits! It is easier to keep the penis clean. Circumcision lowers the risk of cancer of the penis. It lowers the risk of HIV and STIs, though it doesn’t remove the risk entirely, so circumcised men should still use condoms. Males who are circumcised have a lower risk of getting a urinary tract infection. Male medical circumcision can also protect female partners against cervical cancer.

The importance of MMC

B-Wise Expert Expert 20 April 2018 15:26

Hi Alive, circumcision is recommended for babies and children under the age of five, but it is also important for young men and men to consider getting circumcised. Medical male circumcision (MMC) helps reduce your chances of getting HIV (by 60%). It also helps reduce your chances of getting sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) like herpes and syphilis. It can also help you keep your penis clean and can help reduce your risk of getting prostate and penile cancer.
