eading Surgeons Tet Yap and his internationally renowned partner Professor Suks Minhas have launched a new Men’s Health Clinic, London Andrology, to support men with conditions associated with male fertility and sexual function. The leading minds have also published an extensive survey*, The Fertility Index, to show how men and women across the UK understand and manage fertility and sexual health issues.
The index has highlighted that millions of men’s sexual performances are being impacted by stress and mental health issues with 12% of men stating that work-related stress has directly caused erection problems and a further 9% saying that other mental health issues have affected their ability to stay erect.
The survey also showed that more than 1 in 10 (13%) of men have admitted that being overweight has directly impacted their ability to stay erect.Alcohol 20%, Smoking 7% and drug habits 5%were also among the list of reasons stated by men in the UK that had impacted sexual performances with their partners.
The leading minds in their field have worked together for over 15 years, developing the most advanced treatments for sexual and reproductive needs. With their extensive clinical and research experience, the team have developed rigorous and patient-centred approaches to treating men’s health conditions and the new clinic is expected to lead the way in treating men’s health conditions – from fertility issues to sexual health issues like erectile dysfunction.
The team at the clinic are keen to raise awareness of male fertility and sexual health issues, get the UK talking about the subject, and change the misconceptions and imbalance between perceived issues around male and female fertility when trying to conceive.
Surgeon Tet Yap, Co-founder of the clinic, commented on the launch, “Unfortunately, men's fertility and sexual health issues are still taboo subjects for far too many of us. The Fertility Index was designed to encourage couples to openly understand and discuss their fertility and sexual health issues.
We launched the clinic to change this perception and offer a safe place for men, their partners, and loved ones to discuss their concerns openly, knowing they will be getting the best service and support.”
